The Maple Leafs are 6-16 in their last 22 games playing on 0 days rest and 16-7 in their last 23 overall. The Senators are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 18-45 in their last 63 overall. The under is 4-1 in Maple Leafs last 5 road games. The over is 4-1 in Senators last 5 overall. The Maple Leafs are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in Ottawa and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The home team is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have run into their first rough patch of the season and they're now on the end of a back to back. The Ottawa Senators appear to be coming back down to the earth and the defensive effort still isn't any good. The bottom line is the Maple Leafs shouldn't stay in this recent funk for long, and they've already beaten the Senators three times this season, which includes outscoring them 9-4 in the last two meetings. The Maple Leafs should have a field day offensively in this game. Give me Toronto and the PL.
