After dropping game 1 at home the Toronto Maple Leafs can clinch their first-round best-of-seven playoff series Thursday night with a victory in Game 5 over the visiting Montreal Canadiens.

The Toronto Maple Leafs come off a 4-0 win on Tuesday backstopped by net-minder Jack Campbell who has stood on his head in this series and been nothing short of perfect in goal.


Montreal has been outscored 12-4 in the series while going 0-for-13 on the power play. Toronto has dominated the second period with an 8-1 advantage in goals.

Montreal are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games.
Montreal are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Toronto.
Montreal are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The Canadiens simply need to keep these games low-scoring and rely on players like Gallagher to come through for them offensively if they are to extend this to a game 6 back home where for the first time this season fans will be in the stands at the Bell Centre.

Vegas Bookmakers have the Toronto Maple Leafs listed at (-240) on the money line to close out this series on Thursday so you’ll need to lay a big number on he blue and white on this night if you’re looking for them to win and advance to round #2.
