Toronto enters action with a 3-1-0 record following a 6-3 home loss to the Devils on Wednesday. Montreal is 1-3-0 after a 3-1 home defeat against the Blackhawks Tuesday night. The Canadiens swept all four meetings last season and the total went under three times.

On Wednesday, Auston Matthews had a goal for the Maple Leafs in the losing effort. It was his third of the season. Dalton Moore and James van Riemsdyk also scored a goal. Frederik Anderson allowed six goals on 31 shots to take the loss.

The Canadiens' lone goal on Tuesday came on an unassisted tally from Tomas Plekanec only 1:15 into the game. Montreal proceeded to allow three unanswered goals the rest of the way. Carey Price made 22 saves in the loss.

Montreal has struggled to generate offense as it has scored only four goals in four games, while Toronto has racked up 22 goals in its four games.

Bet on Maple Leafs vs. Canadiens

While the Maple Leafs' offense is rolling, they can be leaky on the back end as shown while allowing six goals to New Jersey. It could be the perfect recipe for Montreal, a team that has a strong goalie and is good defensively but is in a major offensive drought. We like the host team to get things on track here.
