Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vegas Golden Knights

Where: T-Mobile Arena

When: Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 10:00 pm ET

We have a non-conference National Hockey League matchup to discuss when the Toronto Maple Leafs meet the Vegas Golden Knights for game two of their two-game series. The Maple Leafs needed overtime to get past the Golden Knights earlier this season, and Vegas would like to even the score in this Tuesday night matchup.

Maple Leafs Five Game Losing Streak

Toronto enters this contest hoping to end a five-game losing streak where Maple Leafs opponents have been outscored 23-13, and you can’t win many games with that type of production or goals allowed. The 23 goals allowed were much more than the Leafs 3.41 goals allowed this season. Austin Matthews leads Toronto with 27 points and a club-high 14 goals. Mitch Marner leads the Leafs with 14 assists this season but is out with an ankle injury, causing him to miss the past 4.5 games.

The Maple Leafs power-play unit has a below-average power-play success rate of 16.7 percent success rate while the penalty-kill unit could use some help with its below-average kill rate of 75 percent this season.

Frederik Anderson is the probable starting netminder for Toronto, and he’s 9-4-3 this season with a 2.74 GAA and 91 percent save percentage. Anderson has lost in three-straight starts and in his latest start, allowed three goals over 33 shots in a 4-2 home loss to the Boston Bruins.

Vegas Snaps Five Game Losing Streak

Vegas just ended a five-game losing streak thanks to a 6-0 home win over the struggling Calgary Flames. Four of those five losses were on the road, and Vegas has been outscored 17-16 over the past five games. The goals allowed were just over its 2.95 the Golden Knights allowed per game this season. William Karlsson leads Vegas with 23 points alongside a club-high 15 assists, and Reilly Smith leads the Golden Knights with ten goals this season.

The Golden Knights have an above-average, 21.6 percent power-play success rate with a top-flight penalty kill success rate of 87.5 percent, good for fourth-best in the NHL this season.

M.A. Fleury is the probable starting goaltender for Vegas, and he’s off to a 10-5-1 start to his season with two shutouts to his credit. The veteran goalie has a career-high 2.52 GAA with a 92 percent save percentage this season and is coming off his second shutout of the season, stopping all 34 shots he faced for a 6-0 home win over the Flames.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Now that Vegas is back to its winning ways, I feel good about picking them to win at home against the Maple Leafs. Toronto is in the midst of a horrible scoring slump, and much of that has to do with Mitch Marner being out. Vegas is healthy and at home, plus they are coming off a shutout victory at home over the Flames. I fully expect the Golden Knights to win this game.

Prediction: Vegas

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

That's too many for this game with Anderson and Fleury patrolling their respective cages. Toronto is having a difficult time scoring goals right now, and the Knights are very good at killing penalties, and that makes a big difference in a game like this. I expect this to be close throughout the game as I suspect Toronto will be hungry to end their five-game losing streak. I will be playing UNDER 6.5 goals in this game.

Prediction: Under 6.5
