After beating the Senators twice in one night, the Maple Leafs head to La Belle Province and take on the Montreal Canadiens. It's still the pre-season so we're getting what can be generously called an NHL game.
The Leafs have the minimum number of veterans out on the ice tonight. Brad Boyes, Leo Komarov, Curtis Glencross, Matt Frattin, Peter Holland, Jake Gardiner and Mark Fraser are your NHL vets in the line up. Hoo boy.
Can we just give the Habs the W now?

Okay, okay ,okay. Maybe it won't be that bad. Habs are running a lot of kids as well. it's a peek at the IceCaps vs the Marlies this year really. Tune in and watch the young'uns do their thing. Cuts are coming tomorrow, so they have somethig to play for.

Really Habs? Price? That's okay, it'll be great watching the Lil' Leafs light up Jesus Price.
