Maple Leafs

When it’s not your series, breaks fall the wrong way.

Toronto finally got a scoreless first period from goaltender Ilya Samsonov and grabbed a 1-0 lead at intermission in Game 3. But Samsonov was injured at the start of the second period and did not return. He was taken off the ice after a collision with his own teammate, Luke Schenn.

Backup goaltender Joseph Woll was thrown right into the fire, being left defenseless by Duclair’s breakaway goal to tie it. Samsonov’s health improved on Monday and Toronto is hopeful he will go, but that answer probably won’t come until Wednesday.

Toronto’s big guns have fallen silent.

Auston Matthews hasn’t scored in this series. Nor has William Nylander. That’s a big goose egg for the Leafs’ 40-goal regular-season scorers. John Tavares, 36 goals, is scoreless too. So is Mitch Marner, whose 99 points led the team.

As the nucleus has gone cold, so have the Leafs. They have scored only two goals in every game of the series.

If the Leafs are going to stir in this series, the nucleus must step up.

Panthers

There’s a different hero every night. In Game 3, it was Sam Reinhart hustling behind the net and putting home the wraparound goal in overtime. That might put the wraps on this series.

Anthony Duclair continues gaining important goals for Florida. He sneaked behind the defense to notch Florida’s first tally, tying Game 3, 1-1.

Bettors who had Duclair or Aaron Ekblad to notch a power-play point cashed in dramatic fashion. The goal occurred with one second left in the power play.

Sergei Bobrovsky continues to outplay his opposing goaltender. He did well enough in Game 3, stopping 22-of-24 shots. The Florida netminder unfurls some of his best postseason hockey this year.

The Panthers have a franchise-record six straight playoff victories. They have come from behind in four of them.

Florida is on a 13-4-1 roll, which includes a 6-1-1 finish to the regular season and a 7-3 postseason mark.

The Panthers try to make the conference finals for the first time since 1996.

Maple Leafs vs. Panthers Game 4 Betting Stats

The 1942 Leafs were the first team to win a best-of-seven series after being down 3-0. They did it to win the Stanley Cup against the Detroit Red Wings.

Three more teams joined them in this category:

  •  The 1975 New York Islanders against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup quarterfinals
  •  The 2010 Philadelphia Flyers against the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinals
  • The 2014 Los Angeles Kings against the San Jose Sharks in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs

Maple Leafs vs. Panthers Futures Betting Odds Before Game 4

Timing is everything. Meet the new chalk. The Panthers are the +360 Stanley Cup favorite at DraftKings. The Carolina Hurricanes stand next at +400.

The Panthers were at the bottom of this heap a few days ago. Odds reflect their likely appearance in the conference finals. All other teams are in the midst of series that can still go either way. Toronto, the favorite last week, is dead last now at +2500.
