The Lightning score a late third period goal to give us a winner on Tuesday with a 3-2 victory over Ottawa. Tonight there is a smaller NHL board, but I’ve got one play going…
2 UNIT = Toronto Maple Leafs @ New York Rangers – OVER 5 GOALS (-125)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.60 units)
The Leafs and Rangers have met twice this season, including Monday night in Toronto. The first meeting of the season was a 5-2 New York home victory, and on Monday the Maple Leafs won 4-3 in Toronto. Dating back to 2011 the Leafs and Rangers have scored 6+ goals in 6 of their last 7 meetings. The Leafs have scored 3+ goals in 9 of their last 11 games. The Rangers have scored 18 goals over their past 5 games (3.6 goals per game) with the OVER going 3-1-1. Take note that the OVER is 13-5-3 in the Leafs last 21 overall, and 25-8 in their last 33 vs Atlantic division opponents. The OVER is 16-5 in these two teams last 21 meetings in New York to go along with the 6-1 in their last 7 h2h meetings. Both teams are having little problems scoring goals lately and their two meetings so far this season have each had 7 goals scored. I like the OVER 5 here tonight.
