Cherry's Pick: Maple Leafs!

NHL Jan 11, 2022

Don Cherry's NHL Pick for Tuesday:

Both teams are coming off a loss, so they are both looking for a bounce back game tonight in Las Vegas.  Goaltender Jack Campbell always seems to play well after a loss, however.  This might be the difference.  The Golden Knights also have a lot of guys out – including Martinez, Stone, Hauge and Pacioretty.  Meanwhile, the Maple Leafs are pretty healthy.  Although its hard to ignore Las Vegas a slight underdog at home, I’m going to take the Leafs on the moneyline.

The Cherry Pick:  Toronto -115 (moneyline)

Don Cherry is a living legend.  The Canadian ice hockey commentator and sports writer started out as a professional hockey player and National Hockey League (NHL) head coach.  He coached the mighty Boston Bruins for five seasons and led his team to two Stanley Cup Final appearances.  Later, Cherry co-hosted "Coach's Corner" a popular show during CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada" broadcast.  Well known for his outspoken manner, opinions, and flamboyant dress Cherry was even voted by viewers as the seventh-greatest Canadian of all-time in the CBC miniseries "The Greatest Canadian." In 2010, his amazing life was dramatized in a two-part CBC movie, "Keep Your Head Up, Kid: The Don Cherry Story," based on a script written by his son, Timothy Cherry.  In 2012, CBC aired a sequel, "The Wrath of Grapes: The Don Cherry Story II." Cherry now co-hosts a weekly show, The Don Cherry Grapevine Podcast.
