Red Wings vs. Maple Leafs Prediction

I’m on the over here. The goaltending situation for both sides is murky at best with both teams limited between the pipes on a back-to-back and some tired legs defensively. Both have shown an ability as of late to find the back of the net and I think that these are two teams that can pile on the goals in this one so give me the over here.
