Maple Leafs vs. Avalanche Prediction and Pick

Despite the Avalanche being hot as of late and also being listed as the Stanley Cup favorites, a lot of their success is due to their NHL-leading shooting percentage. They find the back of the net on 12.63 percent of their shots, which is the top mark by a wide margin. It's hard to rely on that when you face a top goaltender, which is what's in front of them tonight. Jack Campbell of the Maple Leafs holds the best save percentage in the NHL, stopping 93.9% of shots.

The opposite is true for the Avs, who have dealt with goaltender issues all season. They're 26th in team save percentage heading into tonight's game.

Toronto also holds an advantage over Colorado in both CORSI% and high danger scoring chances.

I'm all over the Leafs as underdogs in Colorado tonight.

Pick: Maple Leafs +127
