The home team Leafs have rolled out maybe their best roster since 1993 so far this season, but they are riding through a little dip in form as they wait for their star player – and thus their offense – to find a groove again.
The ‘Canes visit the Great White North on the heels of a good 2-1 victory against the Columbus Blue Jackets in their last game. It’s still a work in progress in Raleigh, but the team is improving and the vaunted young defense corps is starting to congeal into a group of performers.
Carolina also enjoys the services of “TVR”, Trevor van Reimsdyk who is the younger brother of Leafs’ star James van Reimsdyk.
Teuvo Teravainen has been on a roll for Carolina in 2017, leading the team with 24 points, so Toronto must be mindful of containing the young Finnish winger.
Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto franchise cornerstone centreman Auston Matthews has been out a few games with an upper-body injury, and his absence has corresponded with an absence of goal scoring for the Blue and White.
Matthews might be back for Tuesday afternoon’s tilt, so Coach Mike Babcock and Co. will hope that his eventual return will spark other stars like Mitch Marner, Willie Nylander, Morgan Reilly and Nazem Kadri.
The Leafs have to be satisfied with their record as we round into the holiday season, but they need to right the ship quickly if they don’t want to slip down the Eastern Conference standings.
A game against the rather pedestrian Hurricanes is a perfect opportunity to set the record straight at home.
Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. Toronto Maple Leafs NHL Prediction:
Carolina’s mobile blueline is capable of giving opponents fits, but the Maple Leafs are great skaters in their own right. Toronto’s talent level is superior to the visitors, and the cream should rise to the top in this home again, after the Leafs have had a few days off to decompress and re-charge the batteries.
Expect the Leafs to win this game without too much stress.
