New Jersey Devils

“New Jersey” is located on the penultimate line of the Eastern Conference and has an asset of only 29 points. In order to at least get closer to the playoff zone, the team needs to win at least five matches in a row, which is incredibly difficult to do in the current realities.

The “Devils” in the previous two matches lost a lot to “Washington” (3: 6) and “Columbus” (1: 5), but quite unexpectedly defeated Chicago with a score of 7: 1.

Toronto Maple Leafs

At Toronto, everything is fine at the moment – the performance is in perfect order, and the defense is rarely mistaken. If, nevertheless, difficulties arise in the defense, then the Leaves compensate them in the attack.

For example, in the last meeting, they got a strong-willed Victoria against the “Carolina” with a score of 8: 6, and previously beat the “Rangers” (6: 3) and “Detroit” (4: 1). Of course, the wards of Sheldon Kif climbed into the playoff zone and occupy the seventh line in the East.

Statistic:

  • New Jersey scored in the last match seven goals.
  • Toronto missed in the previous three meetings out of four more than two times.
  • Devils score an average of three goals on their ice.

Prediction:

“New Jersey” and “Toronto” – teams of completely different levels at the moment. With the advent of Sheldon Kif, “maple leaves” show the most powerful hockey, almost the best in the league. The “devils” have big problems with the game, and with the results, and the tournament motivation disappears for the players with each new meeting, since the chances of getting to the playoffs are at a minimum. In addition, all three last face-to-face meetings ended in favor of the Canadian club, so the victory for Toronto seems to be the best option for the forecast.

“Toronto” recently not only does not lose, but also on an ongoing basis sends a string bag of pucks into the opponent’s goal. In five previous meetings, Sheldon Kif’s wards scored 27 (!!!) goals (5.40 on average per game), and each time they differed at least four times. “New Jersey” is currently the second worst defense in the league, which has allowed to hit their possessions already 128 times in 36 matches (3.56 on average per game). Considering that over the last three personal meetings, “maple leaves” scored “17 goals” to the “devils” (5.67 on average per game), the bet on the individual “Toronto” total over 3.5.
