New Jersey Devils vs. Toronto Maple Leafs, 7PM ET (View Matchup)

The Devils have won just 1 of their last 5 games in Toronto but they have won 8 of their last 9 conference games and their last 5 on 1 day of rest. Toronto is just 3-11 in their last 14 games when playing on 1 day of rest. My pick is with the hot Devils as they are finally starting to play to their potential right now and Toronto is still struggling. If the Devils are going to make a run at the playoffs, they need to win these games.
