Online NHL Betting Odds:
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple Leafs fall into this evening’s contest sporting a 35-18-3 record that nets them 73 points on the season. That 73 point tally pegs Toronto as the second best team in the Atlantic Division behind the Tampa Bay Lighting. The Lightning have been having a highly successful season and currently own a 15 point lead over Toronto. Ultimately Toronto will be more worried about being usurped by the Boston Bruins, who are 1 point behind Toronto, rather than being focused on catching up to Tampa Bay. Fortunately the Maple Leafs shouldn’t have too hard of a time picking up this win this evening since Vegas is amidst as slump. On top of that, Toronto is 2-1 in their last 3 meetings versus Vegas.
Players to Watch: Mitch Marner (20 G, 47 A, 67 PTS.), John Tavares (33 G, 29 A, 62 PTS.), and Morgan Rielly (14 G, 41 A, 55 PTS.).
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights enter tonight’s action sporting a 31-23-4 record that nets them 66 points on the season. That 66 point tally currently ranks Vegas 3rd in the division. However, accounting for their recent slump, Vegas is starting to fall behind the division leading San Jose Sharks, who are now 9 points ahead of Vegas. Although the 4th seeded Vancouver Canucks have failed to give Vegas a run for their money, the Golden Knights really need to turn things around soon. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear they’ll likely to come up short this evening. This is because Vegas ranks 16th in scoring and 6th overall in defense. On the other hand, the Maple Leafs rank 4th in scoring and 7th in defense.
Players to Watch: Alex Tuch (16 G, 24 A, 40 PTS.), Jonathan Marchessault (19 G, 20 A, 39 PTS.), and William Karlsson (17 G, 19 A, 36 PTS.).
