The Toronto Maple Leafs have allowed three or more goals in six of their last eight games.
The Florida Panthers look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 12 games. The Florida Panthers are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 22.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Evgenii Dadonov leads Florida with 19 goals, Jonathan Huberdeau has 42 assists and Mike Hoffman has 121 shots on goal.

The Florida Panthers have allowed three or more goals in seven of their last nine games.
The Maple Leafs are 5-0 in their last 5 games as a road favorite, 5-0 in their last 5 road games and 9-3 in their last 12 overall. The Panthers are 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games, 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-1 in their last 6 home games. The over is 6-2 in Maple Leafs last 8 overall. The over is 25-10-2 in Panthers last 37 home games. The Maple Leafs are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Florida. The favorite is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The home team is 12-1 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs went from being flashy offensive team with potential to putting together 60 minutes of complete hockey and the results are starting to pile up in a positive way. The Florida Panthers look like the Maple Leafs of old, and that's a team that scores a bunch but can't get stops and sometimes settles for frustrating losses. With that said, we're getting a talented Panthers team at home and the plus money, and this is a big game with Florida looking to chip away in the playoff standings. I'll take the Florida Panthers and the plus money.
