Maple Leafs vs. Coyotes Prediction

I’m on the Maple Leafs here. The losing streak has to end for the Coyotes at some point, and the Coyotes have won 4 straight against Toronto as hefty underdogs. However the problem remains that Arizona can’t get out of their own way right now and I don’t want to be the one to try to catch the falling knife. Toronto’s the better team and this team’s found their offense as of late and the goaltending’s followed suit. I’ll side with Toronto -1.5 here.
