Coming off a loss to Edmonton, the Detroit Red Wings head to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs.
Toronto, with losses in each of the last five games, are in desperate need of a win in order to stay in the Eastern Conference Wild Card race.
Detroit Red Wings
Sitting last in the Atlantic Division, the Detroit Red Wings have had a disappointing year that has included trading away the team’s top goal-scorer, Thomas Vanek.
Without Vanek, the Red Wings are down a 15 goal, 28 assist forward that was giving the team quality ice team each night. Detroit has pretty much solidified that the team won’t be trying to win much at this point in order to get a good draft pick this summer.
The Red Wings will need to rely more on a winger like Tomas Tatar. Tatar has 15 goals and 14 assists in 63 games this year. Over his last five games, he has two goals.
Right wing Anthony Manta has been another skater that has stepped up for Detroit. He has 14 goals and 19 assists this season, including a goal and two assists over his last five games.
Toronto Maple Leafs
It’s been a rough stretch for the Toronto Maple Leafs, despite having some of the best young talent in the NHL. The forwards have been solid all season and the team has the ability to score. Unfortunately, it’s been very tough for the team to prevent opponents from scoring.
Offensively, the Maple Leafs are great. The team has 194 goals on the year, with 31 of them coming from Auston Matthews, the #1 overall draft pick in 2016. Matthews has had a fantastic year, posting 31 goals and 24 assists.
Fellow rookie Mitch Marner has been an important player as well. He has 15 goals and 35 assists on the year, including three assists over his last five. He’s been the team’s best option for generating offense anywhere on the ice.
Offense has been no issue for Toronto, but the defense certainly has. The team has allowed 193 goals this year and it has put a lot of pressure on the offense, leading to mixed results.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Detroit is 3-8 SU in the last 11 games
- Toronto is 1-5 ATS in the last six games
Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Toronto Maple Leafs NHL Hockey Prediction:
Toronto has the offensive ability to outscore almost any team but the defense is suspect. Against a Detroit team with few scorers, however, the Maple Leafs should get the W at home.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Toronto ATS
Toronto’s offense should go to work here. Against a poor team like Detroit, the young forwards of Toronto should get the win and cover the spread.
