Carolina Hurricanes vs Toronto Maple Leafs 02/07/2022 Betting Odds:
The Hurricanes are aware that there is more than just extending their own win streak and snapping the Maple Leafs’. It may be a regular season game on the road for Carolina, but the result of Monday’s clash could be a significant indicator of what could transpire in the more crucial stages of the season. For coach Rod Brind’Amour, consistency has been the key for the Hurricanes this year. After 42 games, Carolina has managed to stay at the top of the division standings. “That’s what we pride ourselves on,” Brind’Amour said. “Every team says the same thing and we’re no different, but you’ve got to back it up.” The game in Toronto will be the first of a four-game road trip for the Hurricanes. It is certainly a challenge but Carolina has proven time and again that winning is easy if they stick to their formula of success.
Players to watch: S. Aho C (G 19, A 26, PTS 45), A. Svechnikov RW (G 16, A 22, PTS 38), T. DeAngelo D (G 7, A 26, PTS 33).
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple Leafs have had multiple five-game win streaks this season. But for some reason, the team is unable to extend it to at least six games. On Monday, Toronto will have the chance to break the trend and it will be against one of the better teams in the league right now. Playing at home with fresh legs, the Maple Leafs could not wait to test their mettle against the Metropolitan Division leaders. Coach Sheldon Keefe says his team is excited as they continue to seek “perfection.” According to the Maple Leafs’ lead tactician, the team’s impressive play is “what you’re pursuing every day here.” He added, “You’re trying to get as good as you possibly can. You’ll never get to perfect, but that’s what you’re seeking to do.” Toronto is currently at third place in the Atlantic Division, trailing only the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Rangers.
Players to watch: A. Matthews C (G 29, A 22, PTS 51), J. Tavares C (G 17, A 23, PTS 40), W. Nylander C (G 17, A 23, PTS 40).

Hurricanes vs Maple Leafs Betting Picks
The Scotiabank Arena will be silenced after Monday’s battle. The Hurricanes will be out to spoil the Maple Leafs’ intention to finally extend their winning streak to six. Instead, Carolina will be the one to keep its own surge alive. Pegged at a value price in the latest NHL Betting Lines, it is then a good opportunity to back the visitors in the spread and moneyline markets.
Score Prediction: Hurricanes 5, Maple Leafs 3.
