The Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks meet Thursday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.
The Toronto Maple Leafs look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 32.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Auston Matthews leads Toronto with 18 goals, Mitchell Marner has 23 assists and John Tavares has 65 shots on goal. Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 79.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Frederik Andersen has given up 43 goals on 454 shots faced and Jack Campbell has given up four goals on 82 shots.
The Vancouver Canucks need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 12 goals, Quinn Hughes has 20 assists and Elias Pettersson has 63 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.4 goals per game and are killing 80.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Braden Holtby has given up 39 goals on 366 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 45 goals on 482 shots.
The Maple Leafs are 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 16-5 in their last 21 overall. The Canucks are 0-5 in their last 5 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The under is 4-0 in Maple Leafs last 4 overall. The Maple Leafs are 2-10 in the last 12 meetings in Vancouver and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 21-7 in the last 28 meetings. The favorite is 20-7 in the last 27 meetings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to pile up the victories at an unreal clip and they're not a team I'm stepping in front of. The Vancouver Canucks can't get out of their own way, have a poor defense and have already lost three times this season to the Maple Leafs. The Toronto Maple Leafs is the only way to go in this game, and I'll take the PL for added value.
