Jets vs. Maple Leafs Prediction

I’m leaning towards Winnipeg here. I want to see more consistency from this Maple Leafs team before backing them against a Winnipeg team that’s been one of the best and most consistent in the NHL up to this point in the year, home or away. Toronto will be fine, but I think this is just a tough matchup for the Leafs. Give me Winnipeg.
