Toronto Maple Leaf’s vs Colorado Avalanche

Where: Pepsi Center, Denver Colorado

When: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 9:00pm Eastern

We have the National Hockey League as our focus when the Toronto Maple Leaf’s visit the Pepsi Center for a matchup with the Colorado Avalanche. Toronto is currently in third place in the Eastern Conference and 15 points behind conference leader Tampa Bay. Colorado is in tenth place in the Western Conference and three points away from the eighth seed. This is a game that matters, and I can’t wait to tell you about these two sides.

Toronto Playing Great Hockey

If the regular season were to end today, the Maple Leaf’s would be the third seed in the East. A record of 34-18-3 record is nothing to sneeze at, and if Tampa Bay wasn’t so darn good, Toronto could easily pass for the best team in the East. Currently, the Maple Leaf’s are just one point behind the second place Islanders, and if their 38-goal differential is any indicator, Toronto will be in second place before we know it.

Toronto isn’t reporting any significant injuries for their Tuesday night game with Colorado.

Colorado won the first leg of this two-match series by a score of 6-3. The Maple Leaf’s have a road record of 17-7-2 and are on a one game losing streak.

Mitch Marner leads the Leaf’s with 66 points with 20 goals and 46 assists and a +/- of plus 18. Over the past five games, Marner has four assists and a +/- of zero.

Toronto has penciled in Frederick Anderson as the man to patrol the pipes. Anderson has a record of 25-11-2 this season with 2.57 goals against average and 92 percent save percentage. Anderson also has one assist to his credit this season.

Over the last five games, the Maple Leaf’s have outscored their opponents 19-14 and outshot their opponents 195-167. Toronto scored only one power in 13 opportunities for a seven percent success rate and allowed two shorthanded goals on ten opportunities for a success rate of 80 percent over the past five games.

Colorado Riding the Struggle Bus

Colorado has had a rocky season, but currently have a record of 22-22-11 this season and are only four points from current eighth seed Minnesota. That is very reachable, but the Avalanche need to a bit more consistency and maybe try and avoid seven-game losing streaks like the one they are currently hoping to snap against the Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.

The Avalanche isn’t listing any injuries for this game on Tuesday.

Colorado smashed the Leaf’s in their own barn last time out and Colorado has a home record of 10-10-5 this season.

Mikko Rantanen leads the Avalanche with 75 points on 24 goals and 51 points and a +/- of plus 14 this season. Rantanen has one goal and a +/- of minus two in his last five games.

Semyon Varlamov is scheduled between the pipes and has a record this season of 13-13-8 with 2.91 goals against average and 90 percent save percentage. Varlamov has one shutout and a 33 percent shootout save percentage this season.

Over their past five games, Colorado has been outscored 21-11 but have outshot their opponents 181-166. The Avalanche didn’t score a power play goal in 14 chances and allowed four shorthanded goals on 14 tries for a 77.8 percent save percentage over their last five games.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This is a decent price and I expect the Maple Leafs to go out and avenge their earlier season loss to Colorado. Toronto has too many weapons and are playing to well against a Colorado side that plays .500 hockey at home and has lost seven straight games. I’m with Toronto on Tuesday night.

Prediction: Toronto -131

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Colorado shoots the puck quite a bit and Toronto does too….the Maple Leafs are going to want to hammer the Avalanche and I think they will. The last time these sides met, eleven goals were scored. I expect much of the same on Tuesday night. I’m playing the over.

Prediction: Over 6.5 Goals
