The Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs meet Monday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Arena.
The Vancouver Canucks look to snap a four-game losing streak. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 17 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with nine goals, Quinn Hughes has 15 assists and Elias Pettersson has 35 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing four goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponents power plays. Braden Holtby has given up 27 goals on 242 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 30 goals on 291 shots.
The Toronto Maple Leafs look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging 3.8 goals per game and are scoring on 38.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Auston Matthews leads Toronto with 10 goals, Mitchell Marner has 14 assists and John Tavares has 33 shots on goal. Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 75.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Frederik Andersen has given up 28 goals on 270 shots faced and Jack Campbell has given up four goals on 52 shots.
The Canucks are 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The Maple Leafs are 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 6-1 in their last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Canucks last 5 Monday games. The over is 4-1 in Maple Leafs last 5 overall. The Canucks are 0-9 in the last 9 meetings in Toronto and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.
The Vancouver Canucks are watching their season kind of slip away from them early, and they're not playing a lick of defense during this losing stretch. Not what you want to hear when going up against an explosive Maple Leafs side. Speaking of the Maple Leafs, they've already beaten the Canucks twice this month, winning those games by a combined score of 12-4. There's no other option for me than to take the Maple Leafs and the PL for max betting value.
