Stephen Nover Free NHL Friday Play
(NHL) San Jose vs. Toronto, 10/22/2021 6:00 PM, Score: 5 - 3
Point Spread: -1.50 | 104.00 Toronto (Home)
Result: Loss
The Sharks are a surprising 3-0. I don't see that unbeaten streak continuing any longer. The Sharks have been playing above their heads and this is a bad spot for them.

San Jose is playing for the third time in four days. They catch a rested Maple Leafs squad that last played on Monday when they lost, 2-1, in overtime to the Rangers at home. 

Auston Matthews is back in Toronto's lineup. He missed the first three games recovering from wrist surgery. He got off eight shots against the Rangers, but was held scoreless. 

I'm looking for the Maple Leafs and Matthews to light up the Sharks in this favorable situation and will back them on the puck line to avoid laying high juice. 

San Jose has lost 25 of the past 30 times when playing for the third time in four days. The Sharks have lost four of the past five times they've played the Maple Leafs.
