The Toronto Maple Leafs and Florida Panthers face off on Thursday in an NHL showdown at FLA Live Arena. 

Maple Leafs Look to Bounce back

The Maple Leafs won their first two games of the season, but they are coming off a loss in the last game. In the last game the Maple Leafs faced off against the Chicago Blackhawks and they only scored only one goal. Joseph Woll was in goal and he wasn’t great stopping only 27 of the 30 shots he faced. Over the first two games the Maple Leafs scored 13 goals total and they need to get the offense going again here.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Maple Leafs offense struggled in the last game, but they are going to have no issue getting back on the right track here. The Panthers defense gave up nine goals over the last two games and they are going to really struggle again in this game. Look for the Maple Leafs to score at least five goals here, and that is going to be enough to get the job done here. Back the Maple Leafs on the money line.
