Featured Video from Scott Reichel

The New Jersey Devils (17-21-7, 41 points) head north of the border on Tuesday to play the Toronto Maple Leafs (24-16-6, 54 points). New Jersey is coming off a big 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Devils snapped Tampa Bay's 10-game winning streak but still sit in last place in the Metropolitan Division with just 41 points through 45 games played.

Toronto has lost three straight after winning nine of its previous 10. The latest setback for Toronto was an 8-4 loss to the Florida Panthers. Even though Toronto has lost it's last three the Maple Leafs remain in third place in the Atlantic division four points shy of second-place Tampa Bay and 11 points shy of first-place Boston. Scoring is not the problem for Toronto of late, it's the defense that has let the Maple Leafs down.

Devil Fire Ray Shero, Will that Spark the Players

The New Jersey Devils fired general manager Ray Shero prior to their teams 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday. The Devils have gone through a firing of coach John Hynes as well as the trade of their top player Taylor Hall. Therefore the firing of Shero should have little to no effect on the players.

New Jersey snapped Tampa Bay's 10-game winning streak with a 3-1 victory on Sunday thanks in part to the 26 saves made by Louis Domingue against his former teammates. Kyle Palmieri continues to lead the Devils in scoring with 16 goals and 31 points while Nikita Gusev leads in assists with 19.

Toronto Needs Better Defense

Toronto lost its third straight by falling to the Florida Panthers 8-4. During this stretch of three straight losses, the Maple Leafs have allowed 18 goals or an average of 6 per game while scoring an average of slightly better than 3.5 per game. The goals against Toronto are a mix of poor defending and poor goaltending and a solution to that problem needs to be found as soon as possible.

Auston Matthews continues to be the points producer for Toronto with a team-high 31 goals and 54 points. Mitch Marner is the team leader in assists with 31. Toronto is allowing 3.26 goals-per-game and scoring an average of 3.59 goals per game. Toronto’s power play is 23.2% while the penalty kill is 75.8%.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Although the New Jersey Devils won their last outing to snapTampa Bay's winning streak things won't be as easy north of the border when they play against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Toronto has won nine of its last 13 games overall and five of its last six on its home ice versus the Devils. In addition, the Devils had another shake-up in the front office after firing general manager Ray Shero adding to the problems as they have already fired a head coach this season and traded away their top player.

Prediction: Toronto Maple Leafs

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Toronto’s defense is not at its best at this point giving up an average of 6 goals in its last three games. I expect plenty of goals scored between the two teams. The total has gone over in four of the Maple Leafs last five on their home ice and in seven of the last 9 overall. New Jersey's defense is equally poor, as the total has gone over in eight of the Devil's last 12.

Prediction: OVER
