At 4:05 pm, our selection is on the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Columbus Blue Jackets.  This series figures to be close as the Leafs and Jackets are the #8 and #9 seeds respectively in the Eastern Conference play-in round.  So perhaps it wasn't too surprising when Columbus scored a mild upset in game one on Sunday.  What was more surprising perhaps was the fact that the Leafs were held scoreless, something that happened just once during the regular season.  Game one was a defensive struggle for the first two periods before the Jackets broke the tie just a minute into period #3 and then sealed the deal with an empty net goal in the final minute.  Look for the Leafs to come out more aggressively and take it to the Jackets with an offense that was third best in the league in terms of scoring during the regular season (3.39 GPG).  The Maple Leafs are 26-11 (+13 games on the money line) in their last 37 games revenging a loss to an opponent in which they scored one goal or less.  Take Toronto.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie
