Toronto Maple Leafs (2-2-3) at Montreal Canadiens (7-0-1)

TV: HNIC, TVAS

7:00pm

The Habs host the Maple Leafs in a classic Saturday night match-up at the Bell Centre on Saturday.

On Thursday, Michel Therrien's men came back from a third period deficit to defeat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 and extend their win-streak to six. Alex Galchenyuk, Max Pacioretty, and Torrey Mitchell were the goalscorers in the final frame.

Carey Price made 30 saves and will be back in goal against the Leafs on Saturday.

The Habs remain the only team in the NHL to stay unbeaten in regulation, earning at least a point in each of their first eight games.

Head coach Therrien has not yet announced whether any changes will be made to the lineup.

At the other end of the ice, the Maple Leafs broke a four-game losing streak on Thursday with a 3-2 win against the Florida Panthers. It was Toronto's first win since their home opener on October 15.

Rookie Mitch Marner had three assists in the effort.

First overall draft pick Auston Matthews remains tied for first league-wide with six goals, while his 10 points place him second in that category.

The Habs won all four of their games against the Maple Leafs in 2015-16.

Great GDT Clues,,,, as per your usual self :) .

The first power-play unit has a new look with Alexander Radulov taking Max Pacioretty’s spot on left wing with centre Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher. Shea Weber and Jeff Petry are on the points.

The second power-play unit at the morning skate had David Desharnais between Pacioretty and Andrew Shaw with Andrei Markov and Nathan Beaulieu on the points.

Defenceman Mikhail Sergachev will be a healthy scratch for the fifth straight game against the Leafs and for the sixth time in nine games this season.

Here’s how the lines and defence pairings are expected to look for the Canadiens against the Leafs:

Radulov – Galchenyuk – Gallagher
Pacioretty – Desharnais – Shaw
Lehkonen – Plekanec – Byron
Danault – Mitchell – Flynn

Weber – Emelin
Markov – Petry
Pateryn – Beaulieu

Carey Price will start in goal.

 

Mathews,,,, meet Weber. :D
