Maple Leafs Pregame #33: 5 Things to Watch for against Calgary

The Leafs are in Calgary. Poor bastards. Maybe it’s the last trip they’ll make here while Calgary is still part of Canada. Only time will tell. For now they’d probably settle for a Wexit, that’s a win plus a quick trip to the airport.
Anyways, I’m assuming Mercury is retrograde or something because right now the Flames are six game winning streak largely because of the play of Milan Lucic and Zac Rinaldo. Yes, in the year 2019 Zac Rinaldo is still in the NHL and somehow he’s thriving. I guess anything is possible when you move on from a toxic coach.
So here we are. Arguably the two most under-performing teams in Canada desperately trying to get back in the playoff picture under new coaches. Should be intense.
