et your snacks, get your drinks, get your smack talk ready. It’s Leafs vs Habs.

Toronto Maple Leafs v Montreal Canadiens

Tonight the Toronto Maple Leafs will open the 2021 NHL season against their oldest opponent, the Montreal Canadiens. The two teams will play their 748th regular season game against each other - the Canadiens lead the all-time series 342-300-88-17 - and the Maple Leafs will be looking to get the win tonight after going 0-1-0-2 last season against the representatives of Puke City.

The Maple Leafs however, made some very smart moves but they have a lot of work to do to get into our hearts:

Bold take.

The Bruins did something good?

Enjoy your day folks! It’s going to end great.
