Time: 7:00 p.m.

Location: Bell MTS Place, Winnipeg, MB

Broadcast/Streaming: CBC, SN360,

Opponent SBNation Site: Arctic Ice Hockey

Our game preview with lineup information is here.

Earlier this week the Leafs beat the Jets 4-2 in Winnipeg after much fanfare for the opening of the Jets’ new fan square outside of the arena, and after NBC sent their A-squad broadcast team to air an all-Canadian regular season game to an American audience.

Tonight, the Leafs face the Jets again in a sort of but not quite home-and-home series While the Leafs haven’t played since their last meeting, the Jets played last night in Detroit where they eked out a 2-1 win vs. the lowly Red Wings. The Jets will be playing their third game in four nights, while the Leafs be playing only their second game in 7 days.

What I’m saying is the Leafs are going to get shut out 1-0 in the most boring game we’ve ever seen. We can all blame Fulemin for his very bad music opinions, and not me for jinxing it and failing to reverse jinx it.
