Toronto head coach Mike Babock will make his second appearance against his old team when the Maple Leafs welcome the Detroit Red Wings to the Air Canada Center in Friday’s NHL action. The Wings topped the Buds 4-0 on Oct. 9 as -172 home favorites but were in the -115 ballpark for the rematch at the time of writing.
- The total has gone over in 10 of the Maple Leafs' last 13 games in November.
- The Red Wings are 4-12 SU in their last 16 games after a win.
- The Maple Leafs are 1-6 SU in their last seven games at home.
Toronto fell 4-2 to the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday and had a day off to catch their breath prior to the contest. The extra rest hasn’t translated into wins for the Leafs, however, as Dion Phaneuf’s squad is just 4-18 in games after having one day off dating back to last season.
Detroit hasn’t had any issues getting the job done as road chalk. The Red Wings are 9-2 in their last 11 tilts when listed as road favorites.
