  • The Maple Leafs are 1-4 SU in their last 5 home games with Colorado. 

Colorado Avalanche vs. Toronto Maple Leafs. The NHL Pick for this contest is Toronto Maple Leafs. Colorado allowed only 2.80 goals per game and should limit the Maple Leafs’ offense with Cale Makar, Devon Toews, and the rest of the defensive unit to create turnovers in the defensive zone and limit shooting lanes, allowing goaltender Alexandar Georgiev to make plenty of big saves. The Avalanche should win the game predicted at 7-5.
