Free NHL Pick For Feb 21: Devils vs. Leafs
New Jersey Devils (1.93) vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (1.93); Total 5.5
7:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
The Leafs return home from a 3 game West coast road trip that did not end well. The Leafs fell 6-2 to the Canucks on Saturday and finished the trip 1-2. The Leafs are clinging for dear life to the last playoff spot in the East and better turn things around quickly. In their last 6 games the Leafs are just 1-5 and have been outscored 25-11. With each passing loss for the Leafs you can just feel the pressure increase. Things won’t get any easier tonight for the Leafs as they face a red hot Devils team and red hot Marty Brodeur. The Devils are 8-2 in their last 10 games while Brodeur is 7-1 with a 1.72 GAA in his last 8 starts. The musical chairs in goal for the Leafs continues tonight and it is Gustavsson’s turn to go.

New Jersey Devils vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Prediction:
This is a tough scheduling spot for the Leafs returning from the West coast with only two off days in between. We saw the terrible start the Leafs had in Calgary to start their West coast trip. I think we see another sluggish start from the Leafs in tonight’s game. And New Jersey is not the team you won’t to fall behind to. The Devils are experts at protecting the lead. I must admit I thought Brodeur’s better days were behind him but I have to give him credit because he has been great in goal recently. The Devils are playing better, have the hotter goaltender, and have the favorable schedule. Currently this game is a pick ’em at 5 Dimes Sportsbook (1.93 for either team) while the Devils are a slight favorite at Bodog (1.87). I’ll take the Devils to win for 1.93 at 5 Dimes Sportsbook.
