The bane of both teams this season has been inconsistent goaltending.

The Jets have allowed 24 goals in their last 5 games, while the Leafs will get great goaltending one night from the likes of Reimer and Scrivens, and shoddy goaltending the next.

The Leafs have also been hit by a lack of scoring from Phil Kessel. Kessel, who is regularly one of the league's top scoring, hasn't been able to find the net so far this season.

The Jets are slightly favored to win tonight.
