Thanks to a 5-1 loss to the Florida Panthers Tuesday night, the Toronto Maple Leafs remain winless versus teams from within the Atlantic Division and get another chance to notch their first win against the division at the Tampa Bay Lightning Wednesday night.
- The Maple Leafs are 0-3 SU in their last three road games at Tampa Bay.
- The Lightning are 13-0 SU in their last 13 home games in January.
- The Maple Leafs are 1-8 SU in their last nine games.
Toronto, even with the Columbus Blue Jackets at 43 points in the bottom of the Eastern Conference, slumped to 0-6-6 versus the Atlantic with the loss to the Panthers. The Buds, presently +175 road pups at online shop Bovada Wednesday, have faced the Lightning once this season and lost 5-4 courtesy a Vladislav Namestnikov overtime winner.
The Bolts have had a few days to recoup from a 5-2 loss to the Panthers in their last contest last Saturday. The defeat snapped their best stretch of play of the season as they had won seven-straight games before losing to their in-state rivals.
The Leafs have been a terrible wager in games with zero days off between contests, posting a 1-10 SU record in such spots this season.
With the Lightning eager to close the gap on the Panthers at the top and the Maple Leafs’ horrible record on the second of back-to-back, don’t be surprised to see the Leafs futility against the division continue tonight.
