Toronto Maple Leafs Team News

The Maple Leafs opened their preseason with two split-squad games against the Ottawa Senators, giving a chance to their tryout players to prove themselves. The first unit got it done against the Sens, claiming a solid 4:1 victory, but just a couple of hours later, the second unit was not so successful and lost 4:2.

Ahead of the game against the Canadiens, many are expecting to see a different lineup fielded by the Leafs, with a lot of players cut from the roster. However, the insiders are suggesting they will wait for one more game and make their first cuts following the clash against Montreal, so there is no doubt a lot of their players tonight will enter the match with plenty of motivation.

Montreal Canadiens Team News

After barging into the Stanley Cup Finals in 2021, the Canadiens had a season to forget last year. Their entire summer and preseason revolved around building a regular title-contending team, which will heavily depend on this year´s No. 1 draft pick Juraj Slafkovsky.

Besides the young prodigy, they injected a lot of other fresh blood into their team, which lost some key and experienced pieces like Shea Weber and Jeff Petry. Despite not having a lot of coaching experience, the legendary scorer Martin St. Louis will remain as the head coach after replacing Dominique Ducharme around half a year ago.

Montreal opened their preseason with a 2:1 home defeat against the New Jersey Devils, so it will be very interesting to see how they will react against one of the most popular teams in the league.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens Prediction

The Maple Leafs are still evaluating their squad, but regardless of the lineup they use in this game, they will come into it as heavy favourites. When the Leafs are playing, there is always a lot of money that comes flying in on them. This game should be no different, but there is simply no value in backing them.

The Canadiens want to leave a better impression after losing their opening match, so we will go against the public this time and back them to cover the spread.
