The Maple Leafs are 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 10-3 in their last 13 overall. The Canadiens are 3-7 in their last 10 home games and 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games. The under is 5-2 in Maple Leafs last 7 overall. The under is 5-0 in Canadiens last 5 overall. The Maple Leafs are 4-11 in the last 15 meetings in Montreal and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.

The Toronto Maple Leafs haven't had long term success against the Habs, but they've won two of the three meetings this season and continue to play their best stretch of hockey in years. The Montreal Canadiens can't find consistency in terms of results and they've played some of their worse hockey on their home ice. The Maple Leafs are a team I'll continue to back as long as the price is right and the defense continues to hold up. Give me Toronto.
