Toronto Maple Leafs vs Nashville Predators 3/19/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


Toronto at Nashville, 7:00 pm. ET


Toronto: One major publication said Leafs fans are “salivating” over rookie goalie Erik Kallgren, who “only” beat the Carolina Hurricanes in his last start. He’s in because Jack Campbell (ribs) will be out at least two additional weeks. .Plus, Kallgren won with Auston Matthews in the line-up.


Speaking of Matthews, the NHL goal-scoring leader returns to the first line tonight following a two-game suspension for his cross-check to the head of a Buffalo player on international television during Canada’s annual Heritage Classic from Hamilton, Ont.


It was a rather naughty cheap shot and Matthews got off cheap with only two games without pay.


Something I try to explain to my ‘capper friends from pro football and basketball: hockey is more like college sports, especially football, where raw emotion can counter any number you spit out of your computer.


Matthews is (bleeped). The kid goalie (2-0-1) is hot. And the Leafs could move into second place in the Atlantic Division ahead of Tampa Bay with a victory, gaining (for the moment) home-ice advantage in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.


Plus, the club is building from a weak January, going 7-4 ATS in L11 since. Plus, the teams met in November, with Campbell (24 saves) blanking the “Honkys,” 3-0.


Edge: Maple Leafs.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs Nashville Predators Predictions 3/19/2022


For Nashville, it’s hard to take the Predators seriously when your leading scorer in a defenseman in captain Roman Josi. And now, the blue-line is hurting with the loss of Matt Benning to start the month — oddly, when the Preds began a 5-1 ATS streak.


The teams’ next three scores are all close — and they’re all center. Which means Toronto can early match-up with them, even though Nashville gets the last change prior to a face-off.


One shining star for Nashville is goalie Juuse Saros, who is 10 games above .500 and a .923 save pct. If he continues to play like that, and based on the teams’ first meeting, an Under 6 should also be the way to go.


Nashville had its hot streak snapped when they pulled a Philadelphia flop against the Flyers on St. Patrick’s Day, which came right after sweeping a pair against Minnesota and Pittsburgh.


Among the clubs in the playoff — the Preds are tied for third in the Central entering the weekend, they are the most inconstant lot.


Pick: And since we’re getting a good price on the road team, we say… Toronto (-125, main play) and Under 6 (-105).
