The Calgary Flames and the Toronto Maple Leafs were two teams that did not make the playoffs last year. This year they rank #1 and #2 in the NHL pre-season. The Flames are undefeated with a 5-0-0 record and the Leafs are 4-0-1. It’s been almost 20 years since a Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup… is this finally the year that the Cup comes back to Canada?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the talk of the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t even played a game yet and the Steelers are 3-0 and scoring lots of points. What will happen when Big Bad Ben returns?
