I could create some narrative here about Dion Phaneuf or Matt Stajan or Niklas Hagman, but I won't because it really doesn't matter. Just another game.
Watch out for the 2nd line of the Leafs-Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski are pretty good hockey players, and Clarke MacArthur will be coming back into the lineup after serving a two game suspension. There was some speculation that James Reimer would be sitting earlier in the week but the Herald has him as the starter. On the Flames end of things, sounds like Sutter's still having Anton Babchuk ride the pine-which is good because he sucks. Miikka Kiprusoff gets the start.
It's the first game in a week for the Leafs. I would prefer if the Flames were .500 going into this upcoming home stand (6 games) and I bet you would too. Lines after the jump.
