The Line: Toronto Maple Leafs -230 / Las Vegas Golden Knights +205 --- Over/Under: 5.5
The Vegas Golden Knights make their first ever visit to the Toronto Maple Leafs in a Monday NHL bout.
The Vegas Golden Knights continue a long road trip with a stop at the Toronto Maple Leafs. Vegas will be looking for back to back victories after a 5-4 win at the Ottawa Senators snapped a three game slide.
Erik Haula paced the Golden Knights attack with a pair of goals with Alex Tuch, William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault joining in on the scoring. Marchessault also added a pair of helpers to help Maxim Lagace to his first career NHL win with a 24 save performance.
The Senators offense saw goals off the sticks of Alex Burrows, Ryan Dzingel, Erik Karlsson and Mark Stone while Derick Brassard logged a pair of helpers but Craig Anderson was charged with all five goals including three power play tallies.
The Toronto Maple Leafs need a dramatic shift in momentum when the team faces the visiting Vegas Golden Knights on Monday. Toronto has dropped five of six following a 6-4 loss at the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.
The St. Louis offense would not be denied with Alex Pietrangelo leading the way with a pair of goals with Magnus Paajarvi, Vladimir Sobotka, Joel Edmundson and Vladimir Tarasenko joining the soring parade. Brayden Schenn added four helpers and Jake Allen made 27 stops to lift the Blues.
The Maple Leafs defense struggled but the offense did not with Tyler Bozak scoring twice with Andreas Borgman and Connor Brown also lighting the lamp. Frederik Andersen took the loss for Toronto with all six goals on 32 shots.
