Habs Have Owned Leafs as of Late

The Toronto Maple Leafs-Montreal Canadiens rivalry is one of the best in the NHL, but it’s become extremely lopsided in recent seasons. In the last 11 meetings between the Canadian squads, the Habs are a sizzling 11-1. They’ll renew acquaintances in La Belle Province Saturday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 8-2-1 in the Maple Leafs last 11 overall
  • The Maple Leafs are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Montreal
  • The Canadiens are 2-9 in their last 11 games following a win

Montreal has also won all three encounters with Toronto this season. The Canadiens are a banged up bunch, especially on the blueline. Nathan Beaulieu, Jeff Petry and Tom Gilbert are all sidelined, meaning the Leafs would be wise to take advantage of that defensive hole in this one.

Mike Condon, the expected starter for Montreal, has had his ups and downs in the absence of all-world goaltender Carey Price, but he’s been much better as of late. Condon has yielded just six goals in his last three games, with Montreal going 2-0-1 in that stretch.
