The Rangers went 2-1 in the series last season and the road team won all three games. The total went under in two contests.

In their season opener, New York was upset 4-2 at home by the Avalanche. Mika Zibanejad scored a pair of first-period power play goals for the two Rangers tallies. Kevin Shattenkirk, Mats Zuccarello and Pavel Buchnevich recorded an assist. Henrik Lundqvist had 22 saves in the loss.

Toronto won its season opener 7-2 Wednesday at the Jets. Patrick Marleau registered two goals for the Maple Leafs to lead the way. Nazem Kadri, James van Riemsdyk, William Nylander, Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews each added one goal. Frederik Anderson made 35 saves in the win.

Bet on Rangers vs. Maple Leafs

Lundqvist and the Rangers would like to make amends for dropping their opener. Beating a very good Toronto team on its home ice would be a great way to do that. Lundqvist is capable of standing on his head on any given night and while the Maple Leafs are a strong team offensively, they can be a bit leaky at the back end. We like New York's chances of pulling the upset.
