4-Unit Play. #81. Take Toronto over Montreal (Saturday, February 9 at 7:05 p.m) This is a huge game in the NHL's Atlantic Division playoff race and we are going to side with the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs for a number of reasons. The Leafs come into this game rolling right along, winners of three straight. We like the fact that they have had the extra day of rest before heading to Montreal, whereas Montreal will be playing their 5th game in eight nights. The Leafs have shown us this year that they can, in fact, win tough road games as they are 16-6-2 away from Scotiabank Arena. The Leafs are in a great play on spot tonight as they are 5-0 in their last 5 meetings vs Montreal and the favorite in this series is 12-3 in the last 15 meetings. The Leafs are also 11-0 in their last 11 games playing on 2 days rest and 9-2 in their last 11 games as a favorite of -110 to -150. They are also 21-6 in their last 27 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game. The Habs, on the other hand, are just 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games and 7-20 in their last 27 home games as an underdog of +110 to +150. The Habs have been one of the surprises of the season, but when the stakes are high like tonight - winner takes over the second spot in the Atlantic Division, we like the Leafs ability to score goals to trump the pesky Habs and their relentless forecheck.
