The Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs meet Thursday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Arena.
The Vancouver Canucks look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 14.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with eight goals, Quinn Hughes has 13 assists and Elias Pettersson has 33 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 80.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Braden Holtby has given up 22 goals on 211 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 23 goals on 254 shots.
The Toronto Maple Leafs look for a win to build on their solid 7-2-1 record. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 43.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Auston Matthews leads Toronto with six goals, Mitchell Marner has nine assists and John Tavares has 28 shots on goal. Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 76.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Frederik Andersen has given up 24 goals on 223 shots faced and Jack Campbell has given up four goals on 52 shots.
The Canucks are 1-4 in their last 5 games as an underdog and 1-5 in their last 6 road games. The Maple Leafs are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The over is 7-3 in Canucks last 10 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Maple Leafs last 5 overall. The Canucks are 0-7 in the last 7 meetings in Toronto and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
The Vancouver Canucks have lost seven straight meetings in Toronto and their defensive effort up to this point doesn't give me confidence they're going to snap that streak. The Toronto Maple Leafs are playing their best and most consistent hockey in quite some time and the offensive firepower is still there. As long as the goalies don't fall apart, the Maple Leafs are capable of winning the cup this season. Still a ways away from that conversation, I'll take the Toronto Maple Leafs and the PL for added betting value.
