Toronto vs Pittsburgh: prediction for the NHL game
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Toronto Maple Leafs are 4th in the Eastern Conference standings with 25 points. The Leafs are on form and are demonstrating successful results. After losing to Los Angeles (1:5), they mounted a winning streak of 5 games. In the last two home matches, Sheldon Keefe's men crushed Nashville (3:0) and prevailed over Pittsburgh in a bitter struggle (2:1). The Maple Leafs usually do not concede more than two goals per game at home, and they also only lost twice in regulation time.
All the injured players are back to the ranks, with the exception of Evgeny Malkin, but the Pittsburgh Penguins still needed some time to find their game. The Pens have recovered from a losing streak of three games, when they lost to Ottawa (3:6), Washington (1:6) and Buffalo (1:2), and got a beautiful victory against Montreal with a score of 6:1. Mike Sullivan's charges acted perfectly on the offensive and made a total of 43 shots. They will be looking to build on this success in the upcoming game.
In the last 3 games against Toronto, Pittsburgh scored more than 2 goals.
In 3 out of 4 games, Pittsburgh scored in the third period.
Pittsburgh got a boost of confidence in the last fixture. The Pens have already beaten Toronto this season, when most of their leaders were still injured, so today we expect them to win without any problems.

Pittsburgh aren't convincing on the defensive this season, but at the same time they look good in attack. The previous head-to-head games were often high-scoring, so we suggest betting on the total over.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
