Toronto Maple Leafs @ Montréal Canadiens
07:00 PM at Centre Bell
Watch on: NHLN, CBC, TVAS, SNE, SNO, SNP
The Leafs last game was at home on January 19 against the Winnipeg Jets, which Toronto won by a score of 4-1. The Leafs have a record of 28-11-7 so far.
The Montréal Canadiens last played at home on January 19 against the Florida Panthers. The Canadiens lost by a score of 6-2, and their current league record is 19-24-3.
Cole Caufield was not helping the Habs tank efforts, so they took him out for the rest of the season using shoulder surgery. Oops, sorry, I meant to say what an unfortunate turn of events that has led to no less than 10 regular Habs players on LTIR/IR.
We’ll see what their lines are during warmups, though I doubt it really matters.

Calle Järnkrok will play tonight after missing practice yesterday for maintenance. Wayne Simmonds also draws in for Dryden Hunt. Rest of the lineup will stay the same.
Ilya Samsonov seems to have the net for now as he gets the nod twice in a row for the first time this season. I call that a point in his favour, but the battle is very even between the very amicable tandem.
