Once again, you can make a case for either of these teams, but I'm not looking to fade the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team that's been kind to us all season long and continues to cash tickets at an impressive clip. The Maple Leafs also just beat the Oilers a couple days ago and have outscored them 7-0 in the last two meetings. I have no choice but to ride the hot hand.
