NHL Network Rout - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #84 Monday 10* Top Play Toronto Maple Leafs Money Line (-) vs St Louis Blues @ 7:05 ET - The situation here is set up perfectly. The Maple Leafs are off a home loss to the Canadiens on Saturday in which Toronto let a 4-1 third period lead slip away. The Leafs were playing the 2nd night of a back to back and it showed. Now, having had Sunday off with a day to rest physically and recharge mentally, the Maple Leafs will come out with plenty of fire tonight as they look to knock off the Stanley Cup Champs. This money line has dropped to the -120 range as of very early game day morning. I understand the move as the Blues are the defending champions and people witnessed the Toronto collapse versus Montreal on Saturday's Hockey Night in Canada. However, did you know that coming into this season the Leafs are projected to finish with more points in the season standings than St Louis. The fact is that Toronto is a legit Stanley Cup contender this season while the Blues are down a few steps from last season's team where everything clicked. Don't get me wrong as St Louis is still a great team but with them off a win and now facing a Maple Leafs team that will be very determined off a frustrating loss, I see this one going to the home team in a big way! The Leafs have won 37 of 60 non-conference games the past two seasons but the Blues have held the upper hand in this series. That said, the motivation is "off the charts" for the home team in this one and they have the talent and skill to finally "get over the hump" when it comes to knocking off St Louis. That said, lay the short price. 10* TORONTO
