Maple Leafs vs. Canadiens

7:00 p.m. ET

Watch on: CBC/SN/TVAS/NHLN

Tonight the Toronto Maple Leafs take on their biggest rivals for the North Division in the Montreal Canadiens. The Leafs are 2-1 against them so far this season, and have opened an eight point lead in the division with three games in hand. The Habs scuffled a bit of late, but have had a week off to get more rested. The Leafs, meanwhile, played the Sens three times and went 2-1 against them. They had an embarrassing loss in the first game, a pretty lacklustre game they managed to win by one goal, and a more dominating win most recently where they still took their foot off the gas pedal in a major way in the third period.

The Leafs may be more banged up and tired, or maybe the Habs will be rusty and out of sync. When the Leafs had their week long break, they came back against the Habs and eked out a win, but they looked weaker to start and stronger as the game went on.

GO LEAFS GO LET’S BEAT THOSE HABS!
