The home team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings and the favorite is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 7-2-1 in Flyers last 10 overall. The over is 8-2 in Maple Leafs last 10 overall.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are in need of a bounce back victory after their defense fell apart in their last two games against the Lightning and Blackhawks. The Philadelphia Flyers are quite hot and have had no problem winning on the end of back to backs, but this is a tough schedule spot after just playing another playoff team in the Washington Capitals. The home team has also won six of the last seven meetings between the Maple Leafs and Flyers. This is a game the Maple Leafs should be able to win on their home ice.
