Noteable Noteables 

  • The Maple Leafs are currently the hottest team in the Eastern Conference. They have gone 8-1-1 in their last ten games and face a Florida team that they beat handily last Thursday, 6-3. The Leafs PDO has been holding at 103% over the last two games, that coming after a steady rise since their 98.9% low back on January 20th.

  • Often overlooked on the national level, the Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars are currently in the battle for the final wildcard spot in the West. The teams will meet twice over the next four days.
  • New York Islanders RW Kyle Okposo has 4G and 3A over his last five games. Okposo being absent from the score sheet is a rare occurrence, as that has only occurred four times since the change in the calendar year.
  • Calgary enters tonight’s game against Montreal riding a season high five game winning streak.

TMMOTS Pregame Warm Up Song:

The Black Keys – “Howlin’ For You”

I plan on tuning into the Phoenix vs Dallas game tonight (after watching Leafs / Panthers), so I thought Howlin’ For You would be a good choice for today’s pregame skate song.

Topics: Calgary Flames, Dallas Stars, New York Islanders, Phoenix Coyotes, Toronto Maple Leafs
