The New York Islanders land in Toronto for an Easter Sunday matchup with the Maple Leafs.

Toronto has been red hot going 8-1-1 in their past 10 games after last night’s comeback win against Ottawa. The Islanders have been playing their best hockey lately too, going 7-3 over their last 10 contests and posting two shutouts.

The Leafs are the -208 favourites to win tonight on the NHL odds with a total of 6.

Islanders vs. Maple Leafs NHL Betting Odds

The Leafs have a chance to sweep the season series tonight, after winning their first two head-to-head. Joseph Woll made 22 saves for his first career shutout in a 3-0 Leafs win back in November, then Toronto beat them again 3-1 on January 22nd. Mitch Marner has scored half of the Leafs’ six goals in the series, while Zach Parise has been the only Isle to score against Toronto.

Both of this year’s games and four of their past five head-to-heads have played the Under, but the Over is 10-3 in their past 13 games when playing in Toronto. The bets are looking lopsided tonight though, with 90 percent taking the Over.

New York played the Under Friday, snapping a three-game streak to the Over. They have covered in six of 10 and are trying to even the 35-39 ATS record. The Islanders have been great versus Eastern Conference squads, winning seven of the past eight matchups.

Toronto’s offence is clicking at 4.8 goals per game pace in their past 10, pushing their record to 43-28 on the Over/Under. They have been in some close contests lately, only covering once in their last five and are 33-42ATS this season.

New York Islanders

Ilya Sorokin made 44 saves and tied a franchise record with his seventh shutout of the season in Friday night’s 3-0 win in Montreal. Veteran Zach Parise kicked off New York’s three-goal third period with his fourth goal in the past three games. Noah Dobson ripped his 11th of the season short side on Carey Price and Brock Nelson sealed it with the empty netter.

With eight games left in their season, the Islanders are the only team in the East that is not already eliminated from the postseason. Behind Washington by 15, a loss tonight would likely seal the deal.

Toronto Maple Leafs

Defenceman Mark Giordano capped off the Leafs comeback, scoring the winner at 3:26 in overtime to beat Ottawa 5-4. Marner tied the game twice with his 32nd and 33rd rips of the year, to help Toronto erase an early 3-1 deficit.

For the third time this season, Auston Matthews is on a three-game goalless drought after scoring his 58th last Saturday. The NHL’s leading goal scorer has never gone more than four games without a tuck.

With seven games to go, the Leafs are fighting for home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs. 104 points have them second in the Atlantic, four points up on Tampa Bay.
