Canadiens vs Maple Leafs Game Thread

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

Carey Price is out again, so it's Budaj manning the crease for the Canadiens against Toronto.

The Leafs are in town tonight to take on the Habs in a game that's nationally televised on CBC, so also streamed online for any Canadians who don't have cable. Click here to watch an online stream.

The Leafs have stumbled out of the Olympic break, allowing themselves to get outplayed by the hobbled Isles, who are without Tavares, and blowing a lead late in the game only to lose in overtime. Conversely, Montreal has managed to grab 3/4 points against tough competition coming out of the break, even though they're playing pretty terrible, are without their starting goaltender in Carey Price, and for all intents and purposes, without P.K. Subban too.

It should be a fast pace, sloppy game between two teams loaded with talented but coached by idiots.

Puck drop is at 7:00 PM.
