Pittsburgh famously had a home streak and won three matches, losing only to Tampa with a score of (1:2) in overtime. Recall that the team of Mike Sullivan won over the Montreal (4:1), Detroit (5:1) and the same Toronto.
Penguins, unfortunately the fans, are not so great at a party, and on average they miss about three goals. Note that at the same time they managed to get to the third position of the East and temporarily bypass Washington according to the scores.
Pittsburgh are in an incredible form of play and destroys everyone in her path, as evidenced by her win-win series of three last games. It’s worth noting that in the last confrontation, Penguins performed without their leader – Evgeni Malkin, but this didn’t stop them from winning a crushing match over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Penguins have shown a stunning realization of the numerical advantage, while playing well in the minority without missing goals.
Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto is located on the 10th line of the Eastern Conference and has an asset of 70 points. Recently, the team often loses and lost in two meetings in a row. On the road with a big score, Leafs first lost to Buffalo (2:5), and then the game against Pittsburgh ended with the same numbers on the scoreboard.
Moreover, in the match with the Penguins by the 33rd minute the team was already losing (0:5), and only goals from Auston Matthews and Travis Dermott helped to avoid a real defeat.
The Toronto Maple Leafs club ended up outside the playoff zone. Based on the latest results, it’s safe to say that the Maple Leafs are not going through the best of times. This is due to the fact that their infirmary is full. In addition, Sheldon Keefe’s team weakened the goalkeeper line. The main goalkeeper has not yet had time to fully recover after an injury, in each match he misses a huge number of goals. As for the reserve goalkeeper (Jack Campbell), so he also doesn’t live up to his expectations.

Penguins vs Maple Leafs Prediction
Pittsburgh almost completely controlled the course of the last match against Toronto and looked more active. We think that in the upcoming match the Penguins will also try to dictate their conditions, and, given the fact that the Leafs have not looked very well lately, they will even try to win.
This season, Pittsburgh shows a high realization of scoring chances, while reliably wins back on the defensive, respectively, they have more chances to win. In addition, they have great motivation to gain a foothold in the upper part of the standings, as the Washington Capitals breathes in his back.
