The New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs play Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre.

The New York Rangers are trying to find some sort of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The main concern for the Rangers right now has been their defense, as they're allowing three goals per game and have given up 12 goals in their last four games. The New York Rangers have lost eight of their last 11 games when allowing three or more goals. Cam Talbot has allowed seven goals on 69 shots and Henrik Lundqvist has given up 28 goals on 283 shots faced. Offense is what has carried the Rangers so far, as they’re averaging 2.8 goals per game. Rick Nash leads New York with 10 goals, Martin St. Louis has six assists and Lee Stempniak has 32 shots on goal. While the power play for the Rangers continues to struggle, they have scored three power play goals in their last two games.

The Toronto Maple Leafs also look to get back on track after losing back-to-back games for the third time this season. Offense has been what has carried the Maple Leafs this season, as they’re averaging 2.8 goals per game and have scored 16 goals in their last five games. The Toronto Maple Leafs have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring at least three goals. Phil Kessel leads Toronto with seven goals, Tyler Bozak has seven assists and James van Riemsdyk has 40 shots on goal. The Maple Leafs have also scored five power play goals in their last five games. Defensively, James Reimer has allowed 13 goals on 173 shots and Jonathan Bernier has given up 21 goals on 251 shots. The Maple Leafs are 7-7 on power play killing in their last two games.

The Rangers are 86-41 in their last 127 vs. a team with a losing record and 2-6 in their last 8 road games. The Maple Leafs are 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 8-19 in their last 27 overall. The Rangers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Toronto.

You have to like the value of getting the Rangers at plus money. The Rangers are the better team and have owned the Maple Leafs in Toronto. Give me NY for the value. 

Pick:
New York Rangers +104
