MAPLE LEAFS (1-3-2) at CANADIENS (8-0-0)
TV: CBC, TVA Sports


Season series: Montreal Canadiens left wing Max Pacioretty scored twice, including the first goal in the NHL this season, in a 3-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Oct. 7. Defenseman P.K. Subban assisted on each of the Canadiens' three goals in the season-opener for both teams. Forward James van Riemsdyk scored the only Toronto goal.

Maple Leafs team scope: Goalie Jonathan Bernier will start against the NHL's only unbeaten team, coach Mike Babcock said Friday. "They've been a real fortunate team in that they're playing good; they got off to a good start, their goalie is playing good, they haven't had injuries, so they play the same lineup every night," Babcock said after practice. "They kind of hit their rhythm early, so it's going to be a good test for us. We're excited that they play [Friday] and we get to watch them and then we play them [saturday]." Center Tyler Bozak (lower body) and defenseman Jake Gardiner (upper body) were placed on injured reserve, and the Maple Leafs recalled forward Byron Froese from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL on Friday. Froese had three goals and no assists in four games with the Marlies.

Canadiens team scope: Montreal is within two of the NHL record of 10 consecutive victories to start a season. The Canadiens are 8-0-0 after a 7-2 win at the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. Each of Montreal's wins has come in regulation, matching the longest such season-opening streak in NHL history; the 1975-76 Sabres are the only other team to accomplish that feat. The 2006-07 Sabres and 1993-94 Maple Leafs each started 10-0-0, but the Sabres had three shootout wins during their streak and Toronto's eighth victory came in overtime. "It's another challenge for us [saturday], and we realize that; that every game it's only going to get tougher for us," Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban said. "Regardless of what our record is, and what the schedule is, every team is looking at us as hopefully one of those teams that is one of the teams to beat in the League." Goalie Carey Price will make his seventh start of the season after backup Mike Condon played Friday. Price, who has two shutouts in his past three starts, has allowed six goals in six games and has stopped 176 of 182 shots for a .966 save percentage.

See I got my providential watch on...or lucky" watch on for guys like Rick. lol :P:P:P

Thank you Clues! :D

Buddies! :D

I think we might be in trouble. I heard it was kinot that gloved that ball for the homerun in the Jays' game.

Even if it wasn't him, I think rule 17 still applies.

I knew it I knew it..he had a brother out there.....no wonder that the Jays are hunting him down!!! lol
