Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Calgary Flames preview: Coolin’ Tkachuks

The Flames are trailing badly in the North Division to a point every game is now must-win for them to keep a hope of making the playoffs alive. The Leafs can put all of that to bed tonight and tomorrow with two quick wins, but, those have proved difficult to get from the Flames. Throw in that second-backup goalie Michael Hutchinson is starting tonight and there are conditions for the Leafs to take their first regulation time loss since the Flames beat them 4-3 all the way back on March 19.


The Leafs have won four of the six games so far against Calgary this season. Let’s keep that rolling!

Who will be the one to douse the Flames’ with goals tonight?

Calgary’s most famous hockey hero, William Nylander, of course!20
Matthews is on a roll, and he’s not stopping for a small fire.21
Johnny Toronto will teach Johnny Hockey about scoring tonight.7
The Chucky that plays for the good team will get his first goal.23
One of the other guys will be the big name tonight.10
