Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Minnesota Wild
|Date & Time||Tuesday October 15, 2019, 7:00 PM (EDT)|
TOR -215 O/U 6
The Wild are coming into the game here really struggling on the year. Granted, the Wild are also playing in back to back road games in Canada as well, which could really hurt them as well. The first game the Wild get to play against a weak Senators defense, but the second game is one that could really spell disaster as the Maple Leafs have a lot better offense than the Senators and can show up on defense.
The Wild on the year have been able to score only at a clip of 2.50 goals a game. The Wild have converted on 27.3% of the power plays, but have killed off 78.6% of the opponents power plays. The Wild have been horrible defensively giving up 5.25 goals a game.
For the Maple Leafs the team would like to have a better chance of winning this game here, but the Maple Leafs are a team that has found their winning ways again. The Maple Leafs prior to the game that was a win on the Red Wings had dropped 3 games and that was definitely not something the Maple Leafs wanted to have happen.
This season the Maple Leafs have been able to play offensively good on the year with 4 goals a game. The team has converted on the power play at 22.7% on the season, but have killed off 77.8% on the year. The Maple Leafs have allowed 3.50 goal a game on the year.
The Maple Leafs have a decent defense compared to what the Wild have put on the ice this season. The Maple Leafs also have an offense that can score, which is definitely better than what the Wild have on the ice. Look for the Maple Leafs to come into this game with a good chance of bringing home the win based off of their offensive power. Final Score Prediction, Toronto Maple Leafs win 4-1.
