Calgary Flames

Toronto Maple Leafs


TOR Maple Leafs -1.5 Point Spread

Under 6.5 Game Totals

Puck Line Pick

Calgary is playing some of the best hockey in the league right now, winning five of their last six games. They did get shut out in their last game, losing 2-0 to the Montreal Canadiens. On the other side of this match-up is the Toronto Maple Leafs. They just snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the New Jersey Devils by a score of 7-4. I would actually give the Maple Leafs a small edge in this game because of how good they have been at home. Speaking of playing well at home, this series has been dominated by the home team, as they have gone 21-6 in the last 27 meetings. The only problem is that Toronto is a huge favorite on the money line, so taking them on the puck line as a lean is my pick.

Over Under Pick

The total in this game is 6.5 and the under is what I will be looking at. While Toronto has one of the highest scoring offenses in the NHL, Calgary is lacking in scoring, averaging 2.6 goals per game. The Flames do play great defense however, allowing less than three per game. Over their last five, the Flames have allowed just 2.2. The under is 7-1 in their last eight head to head meetings. I look for this one to finish around 4-2 and will take the under as a small lean.
