Auston Matthews leads Toronto with 13 goals, Mitch Marner has 14 assists and Morgan Rielly has 51 shots on goal.

Frederik Andersen has given up 37 goals on 438 shots faced and Michael Hutchinson has allowed 23 goals on 190 shots. The Toronto Maple Leafs have allowed three or more goals in nine of their last 12 games.
The New York Islanders look to stay hot after winning 11 of their last 12 games. The New York Islanders are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 17.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Mathew Barzal leads New York with seven goals, Brock Nelson has seven assists and Anthony Beauvillier has 29 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Islanders are allowing 2.2 goals per game and are killing 85.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Semyon Varlamov has given up 18 goals on 237 shots faced and Thomas Greiss has allowed 16 goals on 275 shots. The New York Islanders have allowed three or less goals in 11 of their last 12 games.
The Maple Leafs are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 55-112 in their last 167 games as a road underdog and 5-14 in their last 19 games following a win. The Islanders are 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite, 5-0 in their last 5 games as a home favorite and 9-1 in their last 10 games following a win. The over is 5-1 in Maple Leafs last 6 road games. The under is 56-27-2 in Islanders last 85 overall. The home team is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings. The Maple Leafs are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have won five of their last seven meetings against the Islanders, but they continue to be hit or miss with a shaky defense. The New York Islanders have been the most consistent team these last few weeks with wins in 11 of their last 12 tries and a defense that's first in goals per game allowed and seventh in power play killing. With a cheap price and the way they're playing, it's damn near impossible to turn down the New York Islanders on their home ice.
