Why it Matters

The Leafs and Red Wings are both fighting for playoff positioning in the North Division. Toronto currently sits in first place with a record of 22-11-4, while Detroit is in sixth place with a record of 16-17-5. The Leafs have been strong at both ends of the ice, averaging 3.4 goals per game while allowing just 2.6, while the Red Wings struggle on special teams and have a below-average power-play unit. A win for the Leafs would solidify their position at the top of the division, while a Red Wings victory would bring them closer to the playoff picture.
