kinot-1 Posted October 8, 2014 Report Share Posted October 8, 2014 IT'S HERE!!!!!! HOCKEY IS BACK!!!! OUR HABS Didn't I do a nice job on the cake? VISIT THE ACC TO TAKE ON THOSE MAKE BELIEVERS THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS Montreal went 2-2-1 in last season's series. The last time we won our home opener against Toronto was in 2009 Here’s how the lines and defence pairings looked during practice Tuesday. Max Pacioretty – David Desharnais – P.A. Parenteau Alex Galchenyuk – Tomas Plekanec – Brendan Gallagher Jiri Sekac – Lars Eller – Rene Bourque Dale Weise – Manny Malhotra – Brandon Prust Michael Bournival – Jacob De La Rose – Travis Moen Alexei Emelin – P.K. Subban Andrei Markov – Tom Gilbert Nathan Beaulieu – Mike Weaver Jarred Tinordi Carey Price- Dustin Tokarski INJURIES- NONE Here’s how the Toronto Maple Leafs lines appeared during practice on Monday: Forwards James van Riemsdyk – Tyler Bozak – Phil Kessel Joffrey Lupul – Nazem Kadri – Brandon Kozun Leo Komarov – Mike Santorelli – David Clarkson Daniel Winnik – Peter Holland – Matt Frattin Defencemen Dion Phaneuf – Stephane Robidas Jake Gardiner – Morgan Rielly Stuart Percy – Roman Polak Goalies Jonathan Bernier James Reimer Injuries- Josh Leivo (bruised foot) and defenceman Cody Franson The visiting Canadiens begin a journey they hope concludes with their first Stanley Cup finals appearance in 22 years when they try to avoid their fifth straight season-opening loss to the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. After fading down the stretch to finish 12th in the East, the Maple Leafs (38-36-8) made a big splash by hiring Shanahan. The three-time Stanley Cup champion and Hall of Famer takes over a franchise that hasn't celebrated a championship since 1967. The Maple Leafs will have to improve defensively to get back in contention after ranking 26th in GAA (3.07) and 28th on the penalty kill (78.4 percent) last season. UPDATES AS THEY COME IN On Wednesday, Oct. 8, downtown Toronto will host the 2014 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off, the National Hockey League's 2014-15 season opening hockey and music festival and viewing party at Yonge-Dundas Square. The free and public festivities begin at 12:00 p.m. ET, rain or shine, through the conclusion of the Montreal Canadiens vs. Toronto Maple Leafs game, which will be shown on giant outdoor video screens at Yonge-Dundas Square.
