Free NHL Pick For Tonight Mar 3: Leafs vs. Canadiens
Toronto Maple Leafs (1.91) vs. Montreal Canadeins (1.91); Total 5.5
7:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
With just 1 win in their last 11 games we all knew something had to give in Toronto and that something was Ron Wilson. Wilson was fired yesterday and former Ducks coach Randy Carlyle was brought in to replace him. Once again this season we have a team playing their first game with a new head coach. This is usually a betting angle that favors the team with the new coach although it has not been coming through so far this season. We all know how bad the leafs have been in recent weeks but the Canadiens haven’t been much better. In their last game they blew the lead in the dying seconds and escaped with a 5-4 SO win over the Wild to end a 5 game losing streak. The good news here is that someone has to win this game.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens Prediction:
There is no question that the Leafs were feeling the pressure during their recent losing streak. The rumors of Wilson being fired just increased the pressure. Now that Wilson is gone it has to release a lot of that pressure. And the fact that the Leafs have slipped to 12th in the East and now people are saying the Leafs won’t make the playoffs the expectations have been lowered. I think we see the Leafs come out with a great effort tonight for their new coach. Players like impressing their new coach and I think we will see an impressive performance from Toronto. Currently this game is a pick ’em (1.91 for both teams at Bodog Sportsbook). I’ll pick the Leafs.
