The Toronto Maple Leafs will begin the month of March with an original-six matchup against the New York Rangers on March 2nd.

It will be the third and final meeting between these two teams this regular season. The Toronto Maple Leafs won the first meeting 7-3, and the Rangers won the second meeting 5-2.

Hopefully, the Leafs will win the tiebreaker.

The Leafs will continue their homestand with a game against another original-six rival, the Boston Bruins, on March 4th. A win over the Bruins could do wonders for the Leafs in their Atlantic Division standings.

Toronto Maple Leafs March Outlook

Next up is a set of back-to-back games on March 6th at home against the Buffalo Sabres and on the road against the Boston Bruins on March 7th.

March 8th is the NHL trade deadline day.

Teams have until 3:00 pm Eastern Time to make trades. It will be interesting to see what Leafs general manager Brad Treliving does to improve the Leafs.

After the deadline, the Leafs will be in Montreal to play the Canadiens on March 9th, followed by four days off. The days off might be nice for any new Leafs players to get a few practices in with their new team.

Once their short break, the Leafs will be on the road to play the Philadelphia Flyers on March 14th. The Leafs will be at home on March 16th to host the Carolina Hurricanes, and will be wearing their annual St. Pats uniforms.

The last time the Leafs wore the St. Pats uniforms was on March 17th last season, and that game was also against the Hurricanes, a 5-2 Leafs win. Let's hope history will repeat itself.

The Leafs will then play two sets of back-to-back games. The first set will be on March 19th (Flyers) and 20th (Washington Capitals). Next, the Leafs will host the Edmonton Oilers on March 23rd before playing in Carolina on March 24th against the Hurricanes.

The Leafs will then return home to host the New Jersey Devils on March 26th and the Capitals on March 28th. March will end with a road game in Buffalo against the Sabres on March 30th.

With the NHL season starting to wind down as teams jockey for playoff position, the Leafs will need a successful month in March. The Leafs have 14 games in March, with a perfect mix of seven games at home and seven on the road. I think the Leafs will need to win at least ten games for it to be a successful month. My prediction will be 10-3-1 for 21 points.
