The Calgary Flames have run into a bit of a rough patch over the last week and they've been horrible in the underdog role this season. The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to pile up the victories, play some of their best hockey at home and aren't a team I'm eager to step in front of. As long as the prices are reasonable, I'm going to continue backing the Maple Leafs.
