Stars @ Maple Leafs Game Preview

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs began life without their top scorer Auston Matthews, on Monday night, losing 3-1 to the Flames. After scoring four or more goals in five of their first seven games, the Leafs have topped the four-goal plateau only once in their last five.

Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars enters play against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night with a .500. The Stars are in the midst of a six-game road trip (all against Eastern Conference team), the longest road trip the Stars have all season. The Stars need to pick up points during this road trip, as the Central Division looks like the best Division in hockey this season. Four teams in the Central entered play with 15 points or more on Tuesday, two more than all other four Division combined.

Game Snippet

Dallas and Toronto will play for the second and final time this season on Thursday night (barring a matchup in the Stanley Cup Finals). The Leafs scored seven goals on the road against the Stars on route to a 7-4 victory. The win is their fourth straight against the Stars.

Stars @ Maple Leafs Game Predictions

Moneyline Prediction

After the Leafs set franchise records for home wins last season, their play on home ice has taken a dip this season. The Leafs are only 3-4 at home this season and have scored only five goals in their last four in Toronto.

However, the goaltender for the Stars on Thursday night will play a big role in the game. Stars starter Ben Bishop is only 7-7-0 in his career against the Maple Leafs with a .895 save percentage and 3.02 GAA. Of the nine teams he has played at least 12 games against, those are the worst numbers of his career.

The Leafs can survive without Auston Matthews. They won games when he was sidelined last season and that was without John Tavares averaging over a point per game for the team. Take the Leafs to win on Thursday and move back to .500 at home this season.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs to Win (-155)

Game Total Predictions

The Toronto Maple Leafs have scored at least three goals in seven straight games against the Dallas Stars, including 17 in their last three games.

The Stars are averaging 3.00 goals per game, while the Toronto Maple Leafs are scoring at a rate of 3.50 per game. The Leafs average has dipped the last few games but the team has enough offensive firepower to score (especially if they face Ben Bishop).

Pick: Over 6.0 Goals (-115)
