Toronto vs Chicago: Falling Maple Leafs Host Surging Blackhawks

Toronto vs Chicago: Falling Maple Leafs Host Surging Blackhawks
One team is surging towards the top of the standings while the other is on their way to the basement as the Chicago Blackhawks visit the Toronto Maple Leafs in National Hockey League action tonight. Winners of nine straight contests, Chicago is the hottest team in hockey while Toronto is aiming to halt a three-game losing streak. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 PM ET on January 15, 2016, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. We like the Hawks here.

Chicago Blackhawks: Western Conference leaders with Dallas

It’s taken a half season but Chicago has caught the once surging Dallas Stars for the points lead in the Western Conference. Their respective results, since returning from the Christmas break, are a big reason why the Blackhawks and Stars are now tied with 62 points as Chicago is 9-1 while Dallas is 3-4-2 during the last two weeks. The Hawks have been hot for over a month as they are 16-4-0 during their last 20 matches. Solid at both ends of the ice, Chicago is third in the NHL with a +34 GF/GA differential as they’ve outscored their opponents by a 131-107 margin so far this season.

Toronto Maple Leafs: Falling towards the National Hockey League basement

In a torrid “battle” for the NHL basement, Toronto sits fourth last in the league, the Maple Leafs are three points ahead of Columbus who have sole possession of the cellar. Showing some signs of life, the Buds played decent hockey as they went on a 6-2-0 run heading into and coming out of the holiday break. The winning didn’t last though as Toronto has lost three straight game by a 12-3 margin – including a 3-1 loss to the Blue Jackets on Wednesday. The Leafs are looking to avoid their first four-game losing streak since they dropped six in a row to close out October. With a 16-18-7 overall record – Toronto is eight points out of a Wild Card position in the Eastern Conference.

Toronto vs Chicago NHL Call: The Hawks are playing on back-to-back nights following a hard-fought 2-1 win in Montreal last night. Toronto won 3-2 at home prior to getting shutout 4-0 in Chicago during the two meetings between these Original Six squads last season. James Reimer (7-6-4 GAA 1.98) will face Scott Darling (4-3-2 GAA 2.60) is the netminding matchup in this contest tonight. Toronto will be without leading scorer James van Riemsdyk who is sidelined 6-8 weeks with a fractured foot. Loving the price, we are soaring with a Hawks and a ten-unit wager on the money line price posted at SportsInteraction. Click the odds image below to access LIVE NHL betting at SIA.
