The New York Rangers’ foremost goal is to gain home-ice advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Toronto Maple Leafs are merely trying to save face right now.

New York Rangers @ Toronto Maple Leafs – Saturday, March 24

Why New York Will Win

The college basketball betting experts who are getting ready to analyze the Final Four are unable to give their attention to college hockey’s equivalent, the Frozen Four, which takes place at roughly the same point on the sports calendar at the beginning of April. In the world of professional hockey, the object is to try and gain as much leverage as possible before the NHL postseason begins. Unlike college hockey teams, the NHL’s best are able to play in best-of-seven-game series, but in order to win those extended battles, having home ice for a Game 5 and especially a Game 7 is an important poker chip. This is what the New York Rangers are chasing right now. New York holds a slim three-point lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins in the chase for the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Rangers, approaching the final three weeks of the regular season, know that they can’t give games away. They will face a number of tough games on the slate, but this game against Toronto doesn’t rise to the same degree of difficulty. The Maple Leafs are one of the most disorganized, listless organizations in the NHL. Their proud history and heritage have given way to dysfunctionality and an inability to persevere in the final months of a season. The Maple Leafs got embarrassed earlier this week by the Boston Bruins, absorbing an 8-0 loss to the defending Stanley Cup champions. That game underscored the extent to which the Toronto franchise has become an unquestioned disgrace in the hockey community. The Rangers are not likely to lose to a floundering and very powerless opponent.

Why Toronto Will Win

When you place your sports bet on a regular-season NHL game, you should always be ready to make the kind of pick that plays against a given NHL trend. There’s not an abundance of reasons to pick Toronto over the New York Rangers at the Air Canada Centre, but with this game on home ice, the Maple Leafs at least have a better chance of winning than they would if they played at Madison Square Garden in New York. If Toronto wins this game, it will be because the Maple Leafs will be trying to erase the utter humiliation of their eight-goal loss to Boston this past week. Any group of professional athletes, no matter how impotent or incompetent it might be, owns a certain amount of pride. Even after the greatest insult or the most profound professional embarrassment, it will want to restore some semblance of honor to its name. The Maple Leafs will want to play hard and well against the best team in their conference. One inspired performance could lift Toronto to victory.

Who Will Win?

Toronto will play hard in the first period, but can it play well for all three stanzas? That’s not likely. New York has too much at stake to lose to Toronto. The Maple Leafs will fight, but they don’t possess the skill or discipline of the Rangers. Pick New York.
