Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens Prediction: Get Ready for Goals on Monday

The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off a disappointing 6-3 home loss to the St Louis Blues on Saturday night.

Their power play is a league best 31.7%, and they are 8th in five on five goals at 113. Offensively, Toronto is led by superstar Auston Matthews with 33 goals, including 12 on the man advantage, and a total of 59 points.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens Prediction

The Montreal Canadiens enter tonight's contest off an impressive 3-2 shootout win in New York against the Islanders yesterday. New coach Martin St. Louis has 5 games under his belt and the Habs have picked up the pace in that time. Montreal is averaging 32.8 shots per game in those 5 games, and they have scored at least 3 goals in each of the last 3. Young winger Cole Caufield has benefitted the most under St Louis, as he has scored 4 goals and added 13 shots on goal during that span - his best stretch by far. St Louis has preached a fast pace with pucks on net, and that is exactly how the Canadiens are playing. On the road this season, the Leafs are averaging 3.67 goals per game, which is 3rd most in the league, and their road power play is also first overall at a rate of 28.8%. Toronto has also scored 53 five on five goals on the road, which is 4th best in the league. The Leafs are giving up 2.96 goals per game on the road, which is 12 least. Toronto has the 9th best road penalty kill at 81% but they have given up 53 five on five goals, which is 11st most. Petr Mrazek is confirmed in net, who is a major downgrade from Jack Campbell. Mrazek has a 2.95 GAA with a .899 save % this season, and he has given up 10 goals in his last 3 starts.  The Canadiens are averaging a league-worst 2.17 goals per game at home this season, but, they are also giving up a 2nd most 3.75 goals per game. The Habs also have the 5th worst home penalty kill at 72.6%, which is a terrible matchup against this Leafs' lethal power play.  This, added to Montreal's recent play under St. Louis and Petr Mrazek going for Toronto, should lead to plenty of goals tonight.
