GAME DAY: LEAFS vs RANGERS-GAME 75

Toronto Maple Leafs (44-25-5) vs New York Rangers (28-32-13)

Game Time: 7:00PM EST

Channel: CBC, SNO, SN1

Radio: FAN590


 

Game number 75 on the season has the Leafs hosting their final Saturday night Home Game against the New York Rangers. This match up should be a demonstration on dominance by the Home squad as they should be tweaking and preparing themselves for the playoffs.

However, that is not what this team likes to do. They tend to play to the level of their competition and the last while has been even worse than that. Coming off a win versus Buffalo the other night, only the 2nd over the last 6 games, we hope to see the boys in Blue start playing a much more detailed 60 minutes.
