Maple Leafs, Canadiens Will Be In Tough To Bounce Back From Rough Losses Thursday Night

Posted by Don Melrose on 11/19/2014 7:08:08 PM

It was a rough night this past Tuesday for the Montreal Canadiens as they suffered a 4-0 loss at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins on home ice. However, that was nothing compared to the 9-2 blowout defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs incurred at the hands of the Nashville Predators only three days after losing 6-2 to the Buffalo Sabres. Both Montreal and Toronto will look to bounce back Thursday night but they face a pair of tough opponents in the Tampa Bay Lightning and St. Louis Blues so it will not be easy.

Tampa Bay Lightning @ Toronto Maple Leafs

Thursday, 7:00 PM ET

The Maple Leafs gave up nine goals on home ice for the first time since 1991 and there is a good chance they go back to Jonathan Bernier after he was pulled following three goals allowed. Toronto needs Bernier to be better against Steven Stamkos and the Lightning and it will be interesting to see how they respond as a team in front of him following Tuesday’s debacle. Scoring at 5-on-5 has been an issue for the Maple Leafs and Ben Bishop is one of them most underrated goalies in the NHL. Tampa Bay has been one of the most complete teams all year and if they get an early lead then the home fans at the ACC could be in for another ugly loss.

NHL Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning

St. Louis Blues @ Montreal Canadiens

Thursday, 7:00 PM ET

Montreal’s next opponent is just as good as they host the Blues Thursday night. St. Louis is 8-2-0 over its last 10 games and owns the league’s best goals against average. The Canadiens room for error will be slim and they can’t afford to be undisciplined when they go up against the league’s second-ranked powerplay unit. They will need Carey Price to step up against a very deep team that can score with all three lines but even then they will have a tough time pulling out a victory. Jake Allen and Brian Elliott have both looked very good behind one of the best defence cores in the NHL and Montreal will have a tough time coming back if they fall behind early on.

NHL Betting Pick: St. Louis Blues

Nashville Predators @ Ottawa Senators

Thursday, 7:00 PM ET

Two days after blowing away the Maple Leafs, Nashville will be in Ottawa looking for a third straight win in another favorable matchup. The Senators have been a very responsible two-way team all year but they have struggled with inconsistency at the offensive end of the ice at times and they will be in tough to score goals against Pekka Rinne and company. Watching Tuesday’s game will be a warning to Ottawa about what can happen if they aren’t prepared from the opening faceoff on and while it’s unlikely they will be embarrassed the way that Toronto was they will be in tough to try and salvage a win on home ice as the Predators continue to roll.
