Pittsburgh Penguins vs Toronto Maple Leafs Prediction

The plus money is extremely tempting with Pittsburgh given how well the Penguins have been playing lately and how the Pens owned Toronto on Tuesday night. However, living in the Toronto media market, I can tell you, the Leafs are under a ton of scrutiny and it doesn’t exactly make you happy when the head coach does nothing but call out your lack of effort in the post game press conference. I think we see a different Toronto team here, one playing with a bit of an edge after being reamed out since the loss last time out and having to deal with a ticked off coach in practice the next morning. The reality is the Leafs are far from safe in the playoff race right now and Toronto really needs to step their game up to build some positive vibes going forward. I’ll lay the juice with Toronto here but it’s a lean at best.
