Mike Smith will get his third straight start in net as the Flames take on the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. It’s been a struggle so far this season for the veteran goaltender and even without Auston Matthews the Maple Leafs won’t be a cake walk. One interesting note about this lineup is the pairing of Juuso Valimaki and Rasmus Andersson. Both were paired together earlier in the season and struggled before being broken up. Each found their footing with a different pairing but looked alright against Washington, so it will be interesting to see how they respond being paired together again in Toronto.
