Tampa Bay Lightning Vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Predictions
The Toronto Maple Leafs have no shot of catching the Tampa Bay Lightning at the top of the Atlantic division in the Eastern Conference, but they would love to send a message when they visit the hottest team in the NHL on Thursday Night. I’m sure Toronto would like to play its best game of the season, mostly telling Tampa Bay if they ever meet in the playoffs, things won’t be that easy. But the encounter catches them in a terrible moment. The Leafs have lost five of the last seven games, including two home losses in a row.
The good news for bettors taking Toronto is they have been money whenever they play on the road this season. If you had bet $100 on each of the Leafs’ games on the road, you would be up to $678 in winnings. Only the NY Islanders have been more profitable away from home this season. Tampa Bay couldn’t care less if Toronto plays well or not on the road. The Lightning looks like the most unstoppable force in the league. If the playoffs would start right now, I don’t think anybody would have a chance against them. The Lightning’s 191 goals scored this season are the best in the NHL by a mile. The next best scoring team is the Calgary Flames with 18 fewer goals scored. Tampa Bay’s pace is just sick. They have also won 11 of their last 13.
To make the challenge bigger for Toronto, they have lost five of their last six games against Tampa Bay, including the last three in a row. When they met back in December, they were hammered 4-1 at the Amalie Arena. The Lightning has beaten the Maple Leafs in eight of their last ten matchups in Tampa Bay. It doesn’t look the Leafs have a shot in this one. For many, Toronto is the toughest matchup the Lighting would face in the Eastern Conference. The numbers and the momentum say otherwise. What’s the play? Tampa Bay.
