The Carolina Hurricanes and the Toronto Maple Leafs will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Air Canada Centre.

ABOUT THE HURRICANES (3-3-1): Jeff Skinner hasn’t been shy on the offensive end with five goals in his first six contests before being kept off the scoresheet in a 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. The 25-year-old Toronto-area native has fared well at Air Canada Centre, recording 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 21 career games. Defenseman Jaccob Slavin scored his team’s lone goal versus the Lightning and had registered all three of his points this season over the last four contests.

ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS (7-2-0): With van Riemsdyk’s availability in question, Mitch Marner is a candidate to be elevated from the fourth line after putting forth his finest performance of the season with a pair of assists versus the Kings. “I just think, in general, I was throwing away the puck way too much, and that was the big thing,” the 20-year-old Marner told reporters regarding his early troubles. “But last game was a step in the right direction for me, personally, and I just have to keep doing what I was doing last game, moving my feet and keeping the puck.” Fellow forward Josh Leivo, who has been a nightly healthy scratch this season, could see time on the fourth line if van Riemsdyk is idle.

Oddsmakers opened the Maple Leafs as -155-moneyline favorites versus the Hurricanes, while the game’s total opened at 6.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have made a statement with their fast start this season, but coach Mike Babcock’s charges enter Thursday’s home tilt against the Carolina Hurricanes with an unanswered question. James van Riemsdyk’s availability is uncertain after the 28-year-old forward missed practice on Wednesday, two days removed from sustaining a lower-body injury.

“We expect him to play (Thursday). Won’t know 100 percent until (Thursday), but we expect him to play,” Babcock told reporters of van Riemsdyk, who is riding a point-per-game pace. Veteran Patrick Marleau ended a three-game drought with his 99th career game-winning goal in Monday’s 3-2 triumph over Los Angeles, helping the Maple Leafs kick off their three-game homestand with their fourth victory in five contests. The Hurricanes are trending in the other direction with losses in two straight and four of their last six, scoring just 13 goals following their season-opening 5-4 win over Minnesota. “They need to get going. It’s time,” coach Bill Peters told reporters of his team’s 28th-ranked offense. “They’ve got to make sure they’re getting into the high-traffic areas on a consistent basis and on-and-off the stick. … Let’s get a shooter’s mentality and get the puck to the net.”

The Maple Leafs were a 3-2 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Kings. That made winners of bettors who got Toronto at -144 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Carolina was a 5-1 loser at home against the Lightning. Bettors on Tampa Bay at +101 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (6) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
