Prediction

The Maple Leafs have been playing great lately and just beat 3 of the best teams in the NHL like the Flyers, Bruins and Hurricanes but they lost earlier agasint the Golden Knights in Las Vegas. The Golden Knights are on a hot streak as they have won 7 games in a row but going against the Maple Leafs in Toronto won't be easy as they have lost only 1 game at home. I expect a very close game and with both teams playing great defense I think the under is the play.
