Toronto Maple Leafs Host Calgary Flames Thursday On Thursday, we’ll be treated to an All-Canadian matchup between two teams that look poised for the playoffs when the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Calgary Flames. Despite being —10 in goal differential on the year, the Calgary Flames have managed to win tight games and are tied for second in the Pacific Division. For Toronto, it’s been the same story all season: no defense, but plenty of offense. That situation has gotten much tougher over the last week as well, as top defenceman Morgan Rielly went down with a broken foot on Sunday versus the Panthers. He’ll join Jake Muzzin on the IR, leaving the Leafs shorthanded on an already thin backend.

Now it’ll be up to a mixture of youngsters and veterans that have had so-so seasons to hold the defensive fort for Toronto. But if we’ve learned anything about the Leafs over the past two seasons, they can score themselves out of most defensive woes. It’ll be important for the Flames to rebound after a disappointing 2-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens in their last outing. Calgary has had some success against Toronto this season, winning their first outing 4-2 at home. Tune in for the 7 PM ET start to see if they can make it two in a row against Toronto.
