Looks like the most logical thing is for @JustinFaulk27 and @J_T_19 to just be each others date? #Valentines
Per a @mikemaniscalco tweet this morning, and coming as a shock to no one, Joni Pitkanen is likely to sit out this game.
From Tal Pinchevsky (a Carolina Valentine's Day name if there ever was one) at NHL.com, the "who's hot" list:
Leafs defenseman Cody Franson has provided an unlikely offensive spark with five points (all assists) in his current four-game point streak. Van Riemsdyk has four goals in his last four games and linemate Phil Kessel has seven points in his last four games. … After failing to score in his first nine games this season, Tlusty has five goals in his last three games. He has benefitted from playing on a line with captain Eric Staal, who has 16 points in his current 10-game point streak.
Injury report: Reimer remains out with a sprained knee and the Leafs learned that Frattin is also out with a knee injury. Forwards Joffrey Lupul (broken forearm) and Mike Brown (upper body) are out, along with defenseman Carl Gunnarsson (hip) are sidelined as well. … For the Hurricanes, Tuomo Ruutu is on injured reserve following hip surgery and defenseman Joni Pitkanen is questionable with a lower-body injury.
Doin' it right vs. Doin' it RONG.

Reason: Reflect Ellis start
I swear, I haven't been to a game in a very long time when there were more than maybe 5 people in that entire area. Its embarrassingly empty.
A lot of the ticket are bought by companies to schmooze clients. So a bunch of the tickets end up not being giving out on a nightly basis. I'm not sure what percentage of those seats are actually spoken for though... I usually get free tickets from a buddy a couple of times each year. It's pretty awesome, can't complain about the free food and alcohol.
