The NHL is back in action on Monday as the Los Angeles Kings will clash with the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario. The Kings will head into this game after a 5-1 loss to the Senators on the road, while the Leafs are off a 4-2 away win over the Capitals.
Los Angeles Kings Form
The Kings did not have a good start to the season as they have 3 losses and only 2 wins so far. On Saturday they were stunned by a resilient Senators team as they lost with a 5-1 score. Last season they were bad on the offensive side of the game as their average was 2.20 goals per game which were the 25th record in the league.
Los Angeles is on the 6th spot in the league in goals allowed with an average of 2.40 goals per game.
The Kings will need to improve and this game will be a good chance to show that they have the talent for further development this season.
Toronto Maple Leafs Form
The Maple Leafs are one of the teams that played well last season. This season they have added some solid names and now they are one of the main favourites for a playoff spot. They also had a great start to the season this year as their record so far stands at 5-1. Their only loss came in the game against the Senators. However, they were able to beat the defending champions, the Capitals, in an away game.
The Leafs are on the 23rd spot in the league in goals allowed at 3.67 goals per game. The Maple Leafs are one the 1st spot in the league in scoring at 4.83 goals per game.
The Kings are a good team and they have a potential for more. However, their start was not solid this season and now they are facing probably the team that is in the best form in the league. On the other side, the Maple Leafs had a great start of the season and they have a good chance for a Stanley Cup title this season. I expect a dominant Maple Leafs win.
