The Toronto Maple Leafs are the hottest road team in the NHL. Yes, you read that correctly. They’ve earned points in 11 straight games away from Toronto, a franchise record, and have a league-best power play and penalty kill on the road. They’ll play the Flyers in Philly on the second half of a back-to-back this evening a day after shutting out the Red Wings at the Joe Louis.
– Shark BITES
- The Maple Leafs are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against the Flyers.
- The total has gone OVER in the Maple Leafs’ last 3 games against the Flyers.
- The Maple Leafs are 9-1 SU and 10-0 on the puckline in their last 10 games on the road.
It’s starting to become a little scary how good this young team is on the road. Whether it’s the influence of Mike Babcock, the skill of their young studs, or the calming presence of a goalie in absolute lockdown mode – this Leafs’ heater needs to be acknowledged by bettors. They now have an 18-5 road puckline record after their ATS win last night and will be a good bet again tonight with their 3-1 record in the second half of their last four back-to-backs.
Philly, on the other hand, has been horrendous since a 10-game winning streak ended in mid-December, going 5-12 straight up in the last month and a bit. The Flyers too will be playing their second game in as many nights and, like the Leafs, are coming off a shutout. Unlike the Leafs, however, the Flyers are 1-3 in the second half of their last four back-to-backs.
Curtis McElhinney will make his second start for Toronto tonight after stopping 35 of 37 shots in his Maple Leafs debut against the Senators on Jan 14.
