Toronto Maple Leafs have a young team, but it cannot be justification for very bad results. They won only five and lost even eleven matches, goal difference 35:47, what means that they allowed 2.94 goals per game. At home 21 allowed goals in nine games - an average of 2.33 goals per game. Tonight, there will be on goal veteran Jean-Sebastien Giguere, with GAA 2.62 and .899 Sv%. Forward Colby Armstrong could be in team after surgery on his hand, while captain Dion Phaneuf will not play because of injury. Nashville Predators are also weak this season, but they are a little bit better than maple Leafs, first of all because of more victories on the previous ten matches. Away from home Predators won four and lost the same number of games, goal difference 21:25, an average of almost 6 goals per game. So, they scored an average of 2.625 goals per game. Tonight, they are without forward Matthew Lombardi.
In the previous eight games in Toronto, Predators scored more of two goals four times, and two or less in the same number of games. Taking the shape of Toronto into consideration we can expect that Predators score at least 3 goals in this game. But, Maple Leafs lost eight consecutive matches and I think that they must to break that negative series. They can win against weak teams as Predators are, but for that the have to play much better in defense. That means less allowed goals. So, because of that I am going against logic.
