The Toronto Maple Leafs come into Halloween night losing their past five contests and will need to buck the historical trend to win Saturday when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Leafs have lost their past six games against the Pens dating back to November 27, 2013.
Toronto has struggled to score this season with the team scoring the second fewest goals in the league so far while scoring one or fewer goals in five of their nine game. The Leafs six-game skid when facing of Penguins has seen them average just over two goals per game.
Phil Kessel will make his return to Toronto after being traded this offseason. During his six seasons with the Leafs Kessel scored 181 goals, which has led to the often-criticized winger having the highest goals per game average at the Air Canada Centre in history.
