Toronto Maple Leafs
Before the start of the new season, Toronto has strengthened the team with some great players and they were one of the favourites because of that. They have opened this season in great and were in the leading position until the beginning of last month when they started to play somewhat worse. After some great games, they have entered in a crisis and suffered four defeats in five matches played. However, their negative series did not last long and after several defeats in a row, Toronto has improved the game and recorded five wins in a row.
When it seemed that the good games would continue, they have entered in another bad period. In the last six games, they have experienced four defeats, and the first ranked Tampa Bay Lightning has used it in the best way. Toronto is currently 14 points behind and it is hard to expect them to retake the first position, especially since Lightning is playing great from the start. But the second position is much more realistic because they only have one point less than Washington and we expect an interesting fight for the second place.
Colorado is a very strange team that plays very well in attack, but compared to Chicago, Edmonton and Vancouver, they have the weakest defence in the West Conference. However, they are currently in seventh position, thanks to an effective game attack. On the other hand, the league is fairly balanced this season and if they continue to play as in the previous month, they could easily find themselves find at the very bottom of the table. The difference between the 7th Colorado and the penultimate Chicago is only seven points.
Avalanche has in the recent ten games suffered even nine defeats and they are in a catastrophic form. Thanks to good games from the first part of the season, they are still in the upper part of the table. The other teams are also not playing much better and because of this they still have a real chance for the playoffs. But they will have to drastically improve their game because they have only defeated New York Rangers at home in the last ten matches. After that they have experienced three defeats as guests, and they will play the next two games outside of their hall.
Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Colorado Avalanche PICK
In the last seven guest games, Colorado has experienced the same defeat and they are traveling to Toronto in a very bad atmosphere, which is also not in the best form, but they are still playing much better than their next opponent. In the last five matches in their hall, Toronto has only celebrated once and this is an ideal opportunity to break the bad series because they are playing against a team that is in a very bad shape.
