The Maple Leafs of Toronto will be hosting the Wild of Minnesota at the Air Canada Centre this evening and in a season of unwatchable hockey games this may be the most unwatchable. This is because the Wild are a very boring team that no one cares about. To prove this, go up to someone and ask them to name all 30 NHL teams, they'll probably rattle off 29 of them no problem, and sit around for five minutes going "WHO THE HELL AM I FORGETTING?" The answer to that question will also be the Minnesota Wild. Even in Minnesota they barely care, because it's a terrible fan base that finds USHL too fast so they watch high school hockey instead. 

In closing, I cannot say enough good things about Better Call Saul, an excellent Monday night program that is far superior to this game in every way.

2.) Since nothing would bring me more joy than seeing the Sharks knock the Jets and Kings out of the playoffs, and to see the Leafs not pick up two points tonight, you can count on a Leafs win. I am sorry for this, but I am destined to not have hockey joy in my life.

Leafs recall Sam Carrick on an Emergency Basis

With the injury to Peter Holland, and the four game suspension to Nazem Kadri it seemed like only a matter of time before the Leafs made a recall from the Marlies. And while the prospect of double shifting Zack Sill might have seemed preferable to tank nation, the NHLPA has strict rules about purposely playing a man short, so today the Leafs made their move.
