The powerful Calgary Flames are in town, backed up by Toronto’s own Dougie Hamilton on the blueline. You can’t beat a talent like that. I mean look at him:

Oh, wait, I’m being told the Flames traded Dougie Hamilton.  My bad.

Okay, so they still have a lot of great defenders, and they’ll be a tough team to play, so Go Leafs Go!

If you want lines for the game go here:

Preview: Leafs face the Flames without Matthews (or Nylander)

If you want to kvetch about life without Auston for a month go here:

Updated: Auston Matthews to be out at least 4 weeks

And if you want to chat and watch the game, don’t move.

What will the intermission panels talk about tonight?

Trading Nylander for a Carolina D not as good as Dougie.47
Trading Matthews for a Carolina D not as good as Dougie.5
Trading Jake Gardiner for a Carolina D not as good as Dougie.1
Trading Nikita Zaitsev’s contract for a Carolina D not as good as Dougie.20
Trading all of the above for Sebastian Aho because somehow nnu has hacked their brains.25
