For this article we will go over the Blue Jackets vs Maple Leafs series.

This is going to be a good series and a blast to watch. So many skill players to watch that it may be the most watched series of the opening round.

You can bet on not only who will win the series but in how many games you think they will do it in.

Jackets vs Leafs Series Prediction

These teams both finished with 81 points. The Leafs finished in 3rd in the Atlantic Division and the Jackets finished in 5th in the Metropolitan Division.

The Jackets are a defensive team. They play a tighter style that keeps them in games. Defensemen Seth Jones and Zach Werenski are incredible and can keep skill guys in check. Elvis Merzlikins was a great story this season but it is anyone’s guess how he will do after such a long break and getting his first taste of NHL playoff hockey. At forward they have some guys who can put up points. Pierre-Luc Dubois is great and Gus Nyquist has lots of experience. Dubinsky, Foligno, Jenner and Atkinson are great players who provide the Jackets much needed depth. But this team gets success by having such a great defensive team.

The Leafs are all about offense. The have the best 4 forwards in this series with Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, John Tavares and Willy Nylander. But they also have great depth too. Jason Spezza, Kasperi Kapanen, Zach Hyman, Alex Kerfoot and Ilya Mikheyev round out a truly impressive top 9 forwards for the Leafs. Morgan Reilly and Tyson Barrie are their top 2 defensemen. They have Cody Cici and Travis Dermott to help them out also. And Jake Muzzin is underrated as he doesn’t do anything great but everything well. Freddy Andersen is an experienced goalie who will keep the Leafs in games when their defense struggles.

Offense vs Defense here and I always like an offensive team to come away winners. The Jackets will keep this series close and I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes the full 5 games. But the Leafs have so many great players and depth to keep an eye on that it will be a hard task for Jones and Werenski to stop them all.
