Toronto Maple Leafs vs Vegas Golden Knights 01/11/2022 Betting Odds:
Toronto Maple Leafs
Three days after the overtime loss to the Avalanche in Colorado, the Maple Leafs are still in search of answers, especially after they squandered an early 4-1 advantage that eventually resulted in the painful loss. Making the defeat a harder pill to swallow is that it snapped a four-game winning streak for Toronto. The team currently sits at the third spot with 47 points in 33 games. And as they continue their road trip, this time in Vegas, the Maple Leafs are more than focused on bouncing back. Having the tools to pull off an upset against the Pacific leaders and the motivation to redeem themselves from a recent loss, the Maple Leafs are expected to put up a solid performance on Tuesday.
Players to watch: A. Matthews C (G 22, A 14, PTS 36), W. Nylander C (G 15, A 20, PTS 35), J. Tavares C (G 14, A 20, PTS 34).
Vegas Golden Knights
Playing on a team’s home ice is normally an advantage in the NHL, at least. But that does not seem to be the case for the No.1 team in the Pacific as it dropped three of its last four games at home. After registering a 21-5-2 home record last season, the Golden Knights are just 12 -9-1 so far inside the T-Mobile Arena. The fact that the squad struggles in a place where they are expected to collect wins worries coach Peter DeBoer, but the lead tactician insists that it is not the time to press the panic button just yet. The game against the Maple Leafs will be a crucial one as the team continues to regain their confidence playing at home.
Players to watch: C. Stephenson C (G 10, A 25, PTS 35), R. Smith RW (G 11, A 17, PTS 28), J. Marchessault C (G 18, A 8, PTS 26).
