The Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.
The Toronto Maple Leafs need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 21.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Auston Matthews leads Toronto with 33 goals, Mitchell Marner has 40 assists and John Tavares has 129 shots on goal. Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 75.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Frederik Andersen has given up 66 goals on 640 shots faced and Michael Hutchinson has given up 17 goals on 211 shots.
The Vancouver Canucks look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 19.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 16 goals, Quinn Hughes has 26 assists and Bo Horvat has 86 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 78.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Braden Holtby has given up 45 goals on 445 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 69 goals on 836 shots.
The Maple Leafs are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The Canucks are 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win. The under is 3-0-1 in Maple Leafs last 4 overall. The under is 9-2-1 in Canucks last 12 overall. The Maple Leafs are 3-13 in the last 16 meetings in Vancouver and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The home team is 21-5 in the last 26 meetings. The favorite is 19-9 in the last 28 meetings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have been better and the more consistent team this season, so they're the rightful favorite here on the road. However, the Vancouver Canucks have shown recent signs of life and they've actually won three straight meetings against the Maple Leafs, which includes an overtime win on Sunday. The home team has also won nine of the last 10 meetings between these clubs, including each of the last seven meetings. I'll take a shot in the dark with the Canucks and the big plus money here.
