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.
