They own a 4-1 record in their last five games which included a 2-1 overtime home win against the Sabres on Saturday night. The minimum stay on LTIR is 10 games and 24 days.
Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Auston Matthews found the scoresheet with an assist after a two-game pointless drought.
The 27-year-old spent last season in the KHL with Magnitogorsk Metallurg, scoring three goals and posting 16 points in 37 games.
Toronto is 11-7 ATS this season. He's up to a.921 save percentage and a 13-5-3 record, which is a 113-point pace over 82 games. 10 different players have scored goals between the two teams with no player scoring more than one goal in the season series. He led all Flyers in scoring in November with 15 points (6g-9a) and a +11 rating, which T-4th in the entire NHL.He has seven of his eight goals on home ice and is now riding a four-game point streak at the Wells Fargo Center with six points (3g-3a). The Flyers came through with a 4-3 overtime road win against the Canadiens on Saturday.
Claude Giroux is also playing well, tallying six points in his last six games overall. The Flyers also have a really good home record of 8-1-4, and that little stat is enough for me to pick the Flyers to win.
Start your Sunday morning with Provy's @EASPORTSNHL OT victor. The Flyers defense is really where they are set apart from most of the pack, as Philadelphia only allows 2.7 goals per game, one of the best records in all of the National Hockey League at the moment. The Flyers have a 5-2-1 record in their last eight against Toronto and five of the last six meetings have been decided by one goal with four past regulation.
