The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Edmonton Oilers meet in NHL action from Rogers Place on Thursday night.
The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to build off of a 4-3 win over Calgary for their 5th victory in their last 6 games. Mitch Marner leads the Leafs in scoring with 12 points coming on 5 goals and 7 assists while Auston Matthews has 4 goals and 4 assists for his 8 points. William Nylander has 7 points with 2 goals and 5 assists and John Tavares also has 7 points with 4 goals and 3 helpers. Morgan Rielly has 6 points with 5 assists and Justin Holl has 5 assists as well. Frederik Andersen’s seen the bulk of the work in net for Toronto with a 4-2 record and a 2.84 GAA while backup Jack Campbell is 2-0 with a 2.00 GAA.
The Edmonton Oilers will look to rebound from a 6-4 loss to Winnipeg in their last outing. Connor McDavid has a team-high 12 points coming on 5 goals and 7 assists while Leon Draisaitl is one goal behind with 4 goals and 7 assists for his 11 points. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 7 points with 4 goals and 3 assists and Darnell Nurse and Kailer Yamamoto each have 6 points with Nurse logging 5 assists while Yamamoto has 3 goals and 3 assists. Mikko Koskinen’s made all 8 starts this year with a 3-5 mark and a 3.42 GAA this season.
Toronto is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 road games while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games as a favorite. Edmonton is 4-10 in their last 14 games overall and 2-6 in their last 8 home games while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog. Toronto is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings between these two teams and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams in Edmonton.
Plus money with a home dog like Edmonton is tempting considering that Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl on their own are worth laying juice over. However, Mikko Koskinen can’t keep the puck out of Edmonton’s goal and it makes it hard, even if you’re superb offensively, to keep up when the goalie can’t do his job. I think Toronto adds to the Flames’ misery once again so I’ll back Toronto on the road here.
