Coming off two straight wins, the Winnipeg Jets head to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs.
The Leafs, fresh off a 4-0 shutout win over the Carolina Hurricanes, will look to get an important win in order to stay in the playoff hunt in the Atlantic Division.
The Winnipeg Jets are a piece or two away from being a Stanley Cup contender. For now, the team sits 5th in the Central Division and has been led by the offensive prowess of Rookie of the Year candidate Patrik Laine.
Laine has 28 goals and 24 assists this season. Over his previous five games, he has five goals – including a hat trick against Dallas – and three assists. Laine has been a huge boon for the Jets this season and should continue his fantastic rookie campaign.
Center Mark Scheifele has been an important skater for Winnipeg this year. He has 25 goals and 35 assists on the year, including seven assists in his last five games. He had three assists in the win against Dallas.
Defensively, Winnipeg has been horrendous, however. The team ranks dead last in the league in goals against, allowing 194 on the season. Against a team with an explosive offense like Toronto, the Jets are going to need score to win this game.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Leafs roster has taken a hit the last couple of games, with Mitch Marner being held out due to a right shoulder injury. He is questionable for the game against the Jets. If he doesn’t go, Toronto will be losing a hugely important part of this squad.
Marner has 15 goals and 33 assists this season and is just a single point behind Auston Matthews for the lead on the Maple Leafs. Speaking of Auston Matthews, the rookie sensation has been a wonderful addition for this team.
Matthews has 28 goals and 21 assists this year, including three goals and two assists over his last five games.
Center Nazem Kadri has been a great skater for this team. In his 58 games this season, he has 24 goals and 22 assists. Over his last five games, he has four goals and two assists including a two-goal game against Columbus.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Winnipeg is 4-1 ATS in the last five games
- The Total has gone OVER in five of Toronto’s last seven games at home
Free Winnipeg Jets vs. Toronto Maple Leafs NHL Hockey Prediction:
Winnipeg has the offensive ability to outscore almost any team. It’s the defense that has been suspect all year. Against a good offensive squad like Toronto, I think Winnipeg will have a hard time keeping the Leafs out of the offensive zone. Toronto gets the W here.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Toronto ML
Offensively, both teams are tough to beat. But Winnipeg’s defense is a huge detriment to the team. Toronto gets the win in this one.
