On Friday night these two teams will finish up their regular season and with playoff seeding determined there wont be anything but pride on the line tonight. Both teams are off to the playoffs and will be looking forward to getting this game over and starting those playoffs.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Toronto Maple Leafs will be coming into this game sitting in 5th place in the league standing and did win the Canadian division. They are coming off of an Overtime loss to the senators in a game where the Leafs were the favorite.
The Leafs will be playing Montreal in the first round starting on May 20th, this could be another spot like last game where the Leafs are more focus on what’s coming up rather then what’s in front of them.
The Maple Leafs have played the Jets really tough this season and over their last 10 meeting, over the last 10 the Leafs are 6-3-1 and have averaged 3.1 goals vs the Jets over that time frame. The Leafs have been an offensive juggernaut this season sitting in 5th in the league in average goals per game and 6th in shooting percent. The Jets defense and goalie will need to be sharp against this team.
Projected Leafs starter is Jack Campbell, he has been outstanding this season at 17-2-2 with a nice 2.11 GAA and .923 save percentage. He is also 4-1 against these Jets with a .930 save percentage.
I think Campbell will be the back up when the playoffs start as Andersen should be good for the playoffs, could be a tandem situation for the Leafs as well. Campbell has been lights out vs Jets this year no reason that should change tonight.
The Winnipeg Jets haven’t been playing as well of late, although they are coming in off a nice 5-0 win vs the Canucks, which should give them some confidence as this season gets ready to wind down.
The Jets are just 2-8 in their last 10 games not really the way you want to go into the playoffs but did look much better vs Vancouver, they will need another excellent game if they want to continue to gain confidence before their opening series vs Edmonton gets underway on May 19th.
The Jets average 3 goals per game but have only score 3 or more 2 times in the last 5 games, with how how good the Leafs are at scoring the jets will need to put as many pucks toward the Maple Leafs net to have a chance in this game.
As mentioned above the Jets have rally struggled when playing Toronto this season, but when they these two teams play the Jets have been lethal on the powerplay, look for the Jets to use that powerplay to their advantage on Friday night.
Connor Hellebuyck will be between the pipes for the Jets on Friday, Connor has a 2-3-2 record vs the Leafs this season so only twice was he not able to get his team some sort of point against a team that the Jets have found hard to solve.
He will need to be on his A game for Jets to win.
