Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas played the last five game at home. The Golden Knights managed only two victories, over the Rangers (5:1) and the Ducks (3:1). They also put up a fight against Winnipeg, but yielded in overtime (4:5 OT). Goalie Brossoit wasn't very reliable against the Jets and saved only 86% of the shots.
In the other games, the Knights suffered defeats to weaker opponents, such as Chicago (1:2) and Nashville (2:3).
Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto were close to winning the 5th game in a row, but they conceded to Colorado in overtime (4:5 OT). The Leafs scored three goals in the first period, but showed a terrible performance on the defensive and gave away the victory.
In previous matches, the Leafs had no such problems. They crushed Edmonton twice (5:1 and 4:2) and devastated Ottawa (6:0). Goalie Campbell gave a shutout performance against the Senators.
In 4 out of 6 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
In 5 head-to-head games in a row, no more than one goal was scored in the first period.
Vegas have suffered a dip in form, but they are capable of creating problems for any opponent, especially when they are playing at home. We are predicting the hosts' victory in the upcoming game.
