MAPLE LEAFS(4-1-0) @ CAPITALS(3-2-1)
In the first time since The Leafs and The Capitals played in last years first round of the Playoffs, we will witness the demise of Czar Alexander and his minions.
Czar Alex leads the league with 9 goals in the 2017/2018 campaign thus far.
Hopefully a contributing factor in tonight’s game will be the Leafs ability to score. They lead the league averaging 5.2 goals per game
Both teams have a similar PP% with he Leafs having a slight edge, 30.8% and 30.0% respectively.
The PK edge goes to the Leafs with a 2.3% difference.
The Maple Leafs have a major edge in shots per game. Leafs holding a 37.4 shots/GP and Capitals with a mere 25 shots/GP
The Maple Leafs lead the league in goals for with 26. The Capitals have a formidable 22, but, if we shut down Czar Alex tonight a win should be expected. The Czar owns 9 of those 22 goals, or 41% of their total goals.
Toronto is ahead of Washington in the, Bon you there?, Corsi Close Cowboy race……..WET FART NOISE
