Free Montreal Canadiens vs. Toronto Maple Leafs NHL Prediction:
It’s so nice to see a rivalry return to prominence, especially when the games become meaningful once again, and even more especially, when they come smack dab in the middle of a playoff race
With the Leafs slumping of late, I’m going with Montreal to win this game on the road Saturday night, an inch their way closer to the top three in the division.
