The Toronto Maple Leafs return home and will host the New York Islanders on Tuesday night. These teams just faced each other last month in New York where the Islanders took the win 3-1. Nicolas Roy and Michael Amadio each scored their first of the season for the Islanders.

Erik Kallgren had 29 saves to get his first victory of the season.

John Tavares has 8 goals, 15 points and 7 assists for the Maple Leafs while Mitchell Marner is leading in assists with 12.

In their last 10 games Toronto are 5-5, averaging 2.8 goals, 5.8 assists, 6.3 penalties and 21.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.6 goals per game

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 Islanders in New York. The Islanders 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.

PICK: Under 6.5 (-110)
