Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto won an impressive game against the Devils on Thursday night, 1–0 in overtime. The Leafs held a top-10 offense to nothing for three periods and all but 2.2 seconds of overtime. William Nylander deflected a chance through the legs of the goalkeeper to net Toronto a win moments before a shootout.
What was surprising was that Toronto’s offense was stymied all evening, too. The Maple Leafs have scored just two goals in a couple of different games this season (one win and one loss) but not until Thursday had they failed to get at least two.
The fact that Toronto has failed to score at least three goals in all but three of its 20 games this season is impressive. But as impressive is the fact that the Maple Leafs are 2–1 in those three. This isn’t a team that depends on its offense. It’s a balanced team, one that thrives on scoring goals, but one that usually just out-skates its opponent.
That opponent on Saturday evening will be the Montreal Canadians, who, after staving off a terrible start and getting back into things in the Eastern Conference, are trending the wrong way once again.
Montreal started its current six-game home stand strong with a win over Vegas. Since, the Canadians have gone 1–3, including two straight losses, one in overtime to Columbus and the most recent to Arizona on Thursday.
The Coyotes are the worst team in hockey and the Blue Jackets aren’t much. The Canadians went to overtime with Buffalo in the game before that (a game they eventually won).
So Montreal isn’t in top form as it gets ready to finalize the home stand and get on the road on Tuesday and Wednesday for a back-to-back with Dallas and Nashville. Toronto won’t have any mercy.
