This year’s NHL trade deadline rolls around on March 3.

With four straight losses heading into Friday’s game in New Jersey, the Leafs need to stop the bleeding.
Here’s a look at the Leafs week.
Saturday: The Vancouver Canucks are in to play the Leafs.
Tuesday: The Devils return to Toronto for the second leg of home-and-home.
Friday: A week later, the Leafs are back in New Jersey.
Saturday: The Leafs final get a break from the Devils. The soaring Ottawa Senators are visiting instead.
