Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Carolina Hurricanes - 10/26/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Carolina Hurricanes - 10/26/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction”

Structure, as National Hockey League coaches like to call it, seems to be what pulls down the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Josh Jooris scored twice, Teuvo Teravainen had a three-point night and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the host Toronto Maple Leafs 6-3 on Thursday night.

Just as they showed in a loss to the Ottawa Senators last Saturday by the same score, the Maple Leafs do not show well against disciplined teams with a strong defensive game.

The Leafs are 1-2-0 when trailing after one period, 1-3-0 when behind after two. We just played similar teams as far as their structure goes.

This win over the Leafs moved Carolina's record to 4-3-1 on the season. Jake Gardiner and Morgan Rielly are both very strong transition players, and both actually rank ahead of Hanifin over the past three seasons in impact - Gardiner at 27 and Rielly at 47 - and both scored better on the defensive side of the puck, too. Their merciless fore-checking had the Leafs under siege for long stretches. "I think we could have been better at getting it out of our zone". Simple. I think we have to execute better. "They've lost some tight ones but they make it hard on you and you can make it hard on yourself by not being prepared and then you get frustrated because they're going to work so hard and break out so quick and play well in the neutral zone and fore-check heavy".

Victor Rask scored midway through the second period to give Carolina the lead and Brock McGinn and Jooris added insurance goals in the third. Auston Matthews, Zach Hyman and Dominic Moore had the goals for Toronto (7-3-0).

That is pretty much how it went in the first period. "Let's get a shooter's mentality and get the puck to the net".

"They deserved to win, we didn't deserve to win", Babcock said. They were organized, we were unorganized. "We have to match their work ethic". The Hurricanes are trending in the other direction with losses in two straight and four of their last six, scoring just 13 goals following their season-opening 5-4 win over Minnesota. Teravainen took possession and fed the puck to Rask, who one-timed it past Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen. His glove save on Noah Hanifin while sprawled out in the crease was his best stop of the season so far. 4, Carolina, Lindholm 1 (Fleury, Aho), 16:08. Toronto Maple Leafs VS Carolina Panthers during 1st period action in National Hockey League regular season play at the Air Canada Centre. Although, that loss to the Bolts should not have come by four goals as the Canes kept it close up until the final minutes of the third period. He fought off two defenders to swat in a rebound for his fourth goal of the season to tie the score 3-3. Penalties_Pesce, CAR, (delay of game), 3:53; Toronto bench, served by Kadri (faceoff violation), 3:53; Hyman, TOR, (tripping), 18:21; Staal, CAR, (holding), 18:37. The Hurricanes turned up their fore-checking again and had them on the run for most of the rest of the second period.
