On December 22, Toronto will host Philadelphia for the NHL clash. The Flyers have lost the majority of recent head-to-head matches against the Maple Leafs. Will the hosts succeed once again? The answer is in our prediction.

Match announcement

Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto stand 3rd in the Eastern conference standings with 46 points. Team will try to finally launch a winning streak. Two of three latest matches ended in a defeat for the Maple Leafs. Club suffered away losses to Rangers (1:3) and Washington (2:5), but managed to get a home victory over Tampa (4:1). 

Sheldon Keefe's team is quite successful on defense and rarely allows more than two goals. Despite a slow start of the season, team's main star Austin Matthews is already tied with Marner for most points scored. 

Philadelphia Flyers

Philadelphia lie 9th in the Eastern conference standings, they are unlikely to reach the playoffs in the current season. In recent matches team managed to get some victories, but before that, team had a long losing streak. Flyers managed to beat New Jersey (2:1), lost to the Rangers (3:6) and secured a victory over Columbus (5:3). 

John Tortorella's men are far from perfect on the defensive end, they allow no less than three-four goals in every match. Team is usually quite successful in the second period, but usually loses in first and last ones.

The Flyers are one of the main underdogs and usually loses in 60 minutes, so we offer to place a bet on the hosts.
