The Canadiens are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 5-1 in their last 6 road games. The Maple Leafs are 4-0 in their last 4 home games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The under is 4-0 in Canadiens last 4 overall. The under is 12-3-1 in Maple Leafs last 16 home games. The Canadiens are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Toronto and 4-9 in the last 13 meetings.
The Montreal Canadiens have had a rough week and this isn't the matchup you want after running into a couple bumps in the road. The Toronto Maple Leafs remain one of the hotter teams in the league with an offense as explosive as ever and a defense that's much improved. The Maple Leafs have also beaten the Habs twice this season. I'll keep backing the Maple Leafs as long as the tickets keep cashing.
