Maple Leafs at Blues | OddsShark Matchup Report
The Maple Leafs, who are 13-13-4 this season, once again have a top-six forward corps that is a moving target since center Auston Matthews and right wing William Nylander will now have rookie Pontus Aberg as their linemate since Andreas Johnsson (leg) is on injured reserve. Matthews also has just one goal in seven career games against St. Louis and could have a tough matchup from Blues center Brayden Schenn.
