Leafs Have Been Getting Dominated by Rangers in Toronto

After a rare day off for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Mike Babcock should have his team ready to host the New York Rangers as the young guns in the center of the hockey universe go for their third consecutive win. The Blueshirts have been on fire in the Big Smoke in the two teams’ last 10 meetings but with the Leafs now looking like a real hockey team in contention for a playoff spot, expect the competition level to be elevated.

SHARK BITES
  • The Rangers are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games on the road against the Maple Leafs.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Maple Leafs' last 5 games.
  • New York is 7-1 SU and 6-2 on the puckline in its last 8 games against losing teams on the road.

The total for tonight opened at 6 and the public is heavily on the side of the UNDER. Toronto has been assigned a total of 6 or more four times now this month and the Leafs’ last two have both gone OVER. Since the all-star break, their games are averaging a total of almost seven goals and the Rangers are the second-highest scoring team in the NHL.

With the Leafs struggling at the defensive end of the ice, posting a sub-.900 team save percentage since the break, and with both teams’ penalty kills allowing goals like it’s going out of style, I’ll be siding with the OVER tonight.
