Matt Hunwick Jaromir Jagr Toronto Maple Leafs Florida Panthers NHL

  • 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.
