Devils vs Maple Leafs Prediction

I’m on the Maple Leafs here. New Jersey’s out of gas and are a team I’m really not looking to back in any way, shape or form. Toronto’s in the postseason, it’s just right now about holding on to the final spot in the Atlantic division and I think they take a big step in doing that with a win here.
