New Jersey Devils vs. Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday

Maple Leafs Hockey

Maple Leafs Look to Keep Solid Start Rolling

The Toronto Maple Leafs (12-7 SU, 9-10 ATS) are waiting to hear if their star centre Auston Matthews will suit up Thursday. They host the surging New Jersey Devils. Matthews has been dealing with an upper body injury since November 6. Despite his absence, the Leafs have won all four games they’ve played without their leading scorer.

Toronto will need all the offensive support they can get on Thursday. The  Devils ranks fifth in goals scored per game (3.47). Oddsmakers have the Maple Leafs as -160-moneyline favorites. The total is at 6.

The Devils have surprised the hockey world through the first 17 games of the season. They’re tied for third in the league with 24 points and rank fourth in goals scored (61). They’ve missed the playoffs in each of their previous five seasons. The team seemed to be on the verge of a total rebuild at the end of 2016.

Instead, LW Taylor Hall (6 goals, 13 assists) has grabbed the role of elite point producer by the horns. First overall draft pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, Nico Hischier (3 goals, 11 assists), has lived up to expectations thus far.

The result has been a youthful Devils’ squad. They feature team speed that few can match in the league. With C Travis Zajac likely to return for Thursday’s game against the Leafs. An already lethal offense is about to become even more dangerous.
