The new NHL season will give us a lot of interesting meetings, among them stands out the central duel of the game day, "Carolina" against "Toronto". The game of these teams will take place on October 26 at 02:00 Moscow time. Our portal offers you its forecast for the outcome of this meeting.

 Carolina Hurricanes

The Hurricanes released their goalkeepers to other clubs in the offseason, which is a very unexpected and controversial decision. The new first number of "Carolina", Anderson, although he is a quality player, is not stable, although at the start of the season he shows a high level, which has already brought several victories to "Carolina", which is still going without losing points. In the last match, the Hurricanes beat Columbus on the road 1:5.

Toronto Maple Leafs

The cage of Toronto players has definitely not become stronger in the offseason, and with the loss of depth, confidence in their abilities may also disappear. The wedge Leaves started successfully in the championship, beating Montreal at home in the first meeting, after which they exchanged home victories with Ottawa, but now the wedge leaves have a protracted series of failures, and the last offender of the team was Pittsburgh, defeating the opponent 7:1.

Injuries and disqualifications:

Injuries:
Toronto - Mikheev (arm injury), Mrazek (groin injury).

Statistics and figures

  • The last match between these teams ended with a 3-6 victory for Carolina.
  • Carolina has an excellent streak of four consecutive wins.
  • In their last five matches, Toronto has won just once.

Forecast

It is difficult to single out a favorite in this confrontation. Both teams have strong lineups, but the hosts are now showing a crazy level of play and are not losing. Toronto always looks confident in attack, but so far the team has solid problems with defense. I think the Hurricanes will win on their own platform.
