Toronto Maple Leafs Preseason Preview: Leafs at Canadiens

The Leafs leave the vets at home and send the kids to Montreal. Hopefully they brought a chaperon.

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

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?
