9* Monday NHL NJ/TOR
New Jersey vs. Toronto,
04/15/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 0 - 2
Money Line: -145 Toronto
The Toronto Maple Leafs host the New Jersey Devils on Monday. Toronto is coming off a 5-1 win over Montreal, while New Jersey dropped their last game to Ottawa, 2-0.
A short price here for a red-hot Leafs team against a Devils squad that is struggling mightily.
The Maple Leafs are 6-1-1 in their last eight games, scoring 3.6 goals per game over that span.
The Leafs are playing like a confident bunch right now, and there won’t be any teams lined up to face them in the first round of the playoffs.
The Air Canada Centre hasn’t been an easy place to play since the Leafs started their home schedule slowly. The team has won six of their last seven at home.
New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur recorded win number 666 on March 23rd versus Florida, and it’s only fitting that the long-time Devil has been stuck on that number for more than three weeks.
The Devils have lost each of their last nine games, scoring only eight times in their last six contests.
New Jersey is 0-7 in their last seven road games versus teams with a winning record.
The Devils are 3-14 in their last 17 games versus Northeast Division opponents. Take Toronto.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
