This one should be fun to watch for fans and bettors who love to see scoring. Back the Over at the Air Canada Centre when the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Boston Bruins.
The All-Star break can’t get here soon enough for the Boston Bruins who need several days to get healthy. Boston was firing on all cylinders most of the first half but once the injury bug bit, they’ve been just another team going 4-3-1 in their last eight games They went from a team that was averaging over 4 goals per game to just 2.9 per game. In addition they’ve lost three of their last six at home.
But we’re not looking for a win tonight, just scoring. And injured or not the Bruins should be able to light the lamp tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Toronto’s goalie Vesa Toskala got pulled from his last game against Boston after allowing four goals on just 11 shots. His defense hasn’t exactly helped. The Leafs rank 28th in the league in goals allowed (3.48 goals per game).
The Over is 7-1 in the last eight series meetings. The first four meetings this season have produced in order 6, 5, 7, and 13 goals. That’s 3-1 to the Over. I expect both teams to let ‘er fly tonight with the All-Star break on the radar. This one should be fun to watch.
Free Pick: Bruins-Maple Leafs Over 6 (-110)
