Canadiens 5, Maple Leafs 2 Final Score

The Montreal Canadiens head to Toronto as these two Original Six teams meet for the third time this season. Toronto won the first two meetings in Montreal, 2-1 and 6-0.

The Habs are red hot and have at least one point in each of their last eight games (6-0-2).

This is the first game Montreal has played since trading for Michael Ryder in a deal with the Dallas Stars that sent right wing Erik Cole to Dallas.

The Maple Leafs have been riding goalie Ben Scrivens since James Reimer was injured.

Toronto is 4-4-0 at home this season.

With a regulation win, the Maple Leafs could pull to within one point of the Canadiens in the standings.
