The Toronto Maple Leafs welcome a visit from the St Louis Blues in Saturday action.

The St Louis Blues never got their offense going and the defense  finally faltered late in a 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild Tuesday at the Scottrade Center. This Wild received goals from goals and assists from Nino Niederreiter and Erik Haula with Thomas Vanek scoring an empty netter. Justin Fontaine added a pair of helpers and Devan Dubnyk stood tall between the pipes with a 33 save performance to lift Minnesota to 20-10-6. Kevin Shattenkirk lit the lamp for the Blues with Jake Allen recording 26 stops as St Louis dropped to 23-13-4.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. St. Louis Blues - 1/2/16 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction


The Pittsburgh Penguins ran in to a hot goaltender on Wednesday and the result was a 3-2 shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Consol Energy Center. PA Parenteau tallied the game winner in the SO for the Maple Leafs while Jake Gardiner and Dion Phaneuf scored in regulation and Jonathan Bernier came through with a monster 41 save effort to help lift Toronto to 14-15-7. The Penguins offense came from a Chris Kunitz power play and a Sydney Crosby tally but Matthew Murray’s 34 stop performance still wasn’t enough with the Pens losing for the 7th time in nine contests to fall to 17-15-4.

The under is 3-0-1 in Blues last 4 vs. Atlantic and is 3-0-2 in Blues last 5 Saturday games while going  4-0 in Blues last 4 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game. The over is 5-0-2 in Maple Leafs last 7 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game and  is 3-0-2 in Maple Leafs last 5 home games while the under is 9-2-1 in Maple Leafs last 12 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Toronto and the  Blues are 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Toronto while going  4-1 in the last 5 meetings. I lean Blues here until I see netminders…
