New Jersey Devils vs Toronto Maple Leafs: Prediction
The Maple Leafs have a completely one-sided 9-1 advantage over New Jersey in their last 10 encounters. However, this has all happened in the past and a lot of things have changed this season.
New Jersey is a completely different beast at present and it will be a mighty task to stop their winning run. The Maple Leafs surely have a home advantage but it will be interesting to see if they are able to use it or not.
