The Coyotes are 5-0 in their last 5 Tuesday games, 15-38 in their last 53 games playing on 0 days rest and 0-6 in their last 6 road games. The Maple Leafs are 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games, 25-9 in their last 34 vs. Pacific and 23-9 in their last 32 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Coyotes last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 10-3 in Maple Leafs last 13 overall. The Coyotes are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Toronto and 14-5 in the last 19 meetings. The road team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in Toronto and 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings.
The Arizona Coyotes haven't been all to string wins together over the last month, and they've been horrible both on the road and on the end of back to backs. The Toronto Maple Leafs have cooled off over the last two weeks, but they've been incredible on extended rest and should have a massive edge with the Coyotes playing last night. This is a good chance for the Maple Leafs to create some distance in a crowded playoff race. I have to side with the Maple Leafs on their home ice.
