Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto is in the group of teams fighting for the wild card in the East. However, unlike Florida, Columbus and Philadelphia, the Canadian club has not looked so convincing lately. In the last match, Maple Leafs did not hold the lead and lost to Panthers with a score of 3:5. Once again, the problems of Toronto in the defense line made themselves felt.
A series of three victories for Toronto was interrupted in a previous match with Florida. The Bay Street Bullies had a great chance to extend the successful line, because they led in the score 3:1, but missed the lead and literally in the third period lost 3-4. Recall that previously the team defeated Nashville (5:2), Dallas (5:3) and Ottawa (2:1).
Away this season, the wards of Sheldon Keefe play relatively well and were able to succeed 15 times in 26 matches. Incidentally, on average they score four goals for an away match.
New York Rangers
Hockey players of the New York Rangers looked great in September during the pre-season training, but the regular season is far from the best for them. At the same time, Artemy Panarin plays efficiently and does everything in his power to ensure that the team retains chances of reaching the playoffs. However, in the last five meetings, David Quinn’s wards won only two victories (over the unconditional outsider of the Detroit League).
The Rangers won two matches against Detroit (4:2 and 1:0), after which they had to fight on their ice with the Dallas, which they lost by a score of 3:5. At the same time, most of the Broadway Blueshirts pucks were issued in the majority, making excellent use of the opponent’s deletions, but they themselves did not play the best in defense.
The team of David Quinn has three goalkeepers, whom the coach alternates from match to match. For example, Henrik Lundqvist played in the last match, and Georgiev replaced him, so in the upcoming meeting it is quite possible to see Igor Shestyorkin in the frame.

Maple Leafs vs NY Rangers Prediction
We think that the match will turn out productive, and the audience of this confrontation will see at least six goals. Bookmakers consider the favorite of the upcoming match, Toronto. A bet on guests has a basis. In doubt, the participation in the match of one of the leading Rangers forwards Chris Kreider. However, betting on the total total is risky and disadvantageous, as bookmakers offer a small coefficient on it. Based on this, we also suggest taking the victory of the guests, since in the last face-to-face meetings on the road, they won two points in the main time.
Our prediction is the victory of Toronto
