Things went downhill from there though as now the Leafs have lost their last three and scored only four goals. They will try and turn things around as they host the Florida Panthers in Tuesday NHL betting.
Toronto Power Outage
The Maple Leafs had just 14 shots in a 5-2 loss on Saturday at Philadelphia. That is simply not going to get the job done. Phil Kessel and Clarke MacArthur lead the Leafs with six goals each. The problem for the Leafs is that only one other player has as many as two goals. Both Kessel and MacArthur scored against the Flyers but no one else did anything. Kessel has not had much success against Florida with just one goal in his last six games against the Panthers. MacArthur has two goals in his last three games against Florida. Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 35 saves Saturday but he has lost his last two starts with a 3.41 goals-against average after winning his first three game s. He has lost his last games against the Panthers.
Florida’s Success vs. Toronto
The Panthers have gone 4-2-2 in NHL betting in the last eight games against the Leafs and they are 3-1-1 in the last five at Toronto. Last year the teams split their four games and they also split in Toronto. The Panthers overall have won three of four including a 4-3 win over the Islanders on Saturday. David Booth and Radek Dvorak have combined for six goals and three assists over the last four games. Booth has three goals and five assists in seven games against Toronto.
