Toronto Maple Leafs Fantasy Spin
Auston Matthews has reached the 30-goal mark in each of his first four seasons in the NHL. Matthews is the youngest Leaf and the first U.S.-born player to accomplish the feat. He surpassed the 30-goal plateau after he lit the lamp two times versus Winnipeg on Wednesday night. Matthews required just 45 matches to get his 30th goal. He ranks second in the league with 31 markers and he's up to 54 in 45 contests
Florida Panthers Fantasy Spin
Sergei Bobrovsky didn't finish Saturday's practice due to an undisclosed injury. Bobrovsky's issue isn't believed to be serious, but it is putting his status for Sunday's contest in question. He has a 16-12-4 record, 3.29 GAA, and .896 save percentage in 34 contests this season.
The Maple Leafs are a perfect 5-0 in their last five road games and are 9-3 in their last 12 games overall.
The Panthers are 5-1 in their last six home games but have dropped four out of their last five games after winning their previous contest.
The over has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams and I see that trend holding up on Sunday night. The over is 6-2 in the Maple Leafs’ last eight games overall, is 21-7-1 in their last 29 games versus Eastern Conference foes and is 10-4-1 in their last 15 games against Atlantic Division opponents. On the other side, the over is 25-10-2 in the Panthers’ last 37 home games, is 22-10-1 in their last 33 games as an underdog and is 35-16-2 in their last 53 games coming off a win.
