Canadiens Have Dominated Maple Leafs In Intense Rivalry

There is no older, more hate-filled rivalry in hockey than the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. The two teams have clashed 783 times over the course of history, but the rivalry has been extremely one-sided as of late. The Habs have won the past 12 meetings between the two clubs, which includes the two so far this season.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Maple Leafs' last 15 games.
  • The Canadiens are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the past 3 games between the Canadiens and Maple Leafs.

The Leafs have been unable to solve Carey Price this season, as the Canadiens’ netminder has a 1.00 GAA with a .971 save percentage in two starts against Toronto. Since the beginning of the 2015-15 season, Price has faced the Leafs eight times and has allowed one goal or fewer on five occasions.

Toronto enters Saturday red-hot, as they have won five of their past six while averaging 4.3 goals per game in that span. Predictably, Auston Matthews has been tearing it up during that span with the rookie sensation tallying five goals and five assists in the Leafs past six.
