MONTREAL: LAST SEASON: 29-40-31, 71 points. Finished sixth in Atlantic Division and missed playoffs.
COACH: Claude Julien (third season, 17th NHL season)
ADDED: F Max Domi, F Tomas Tatar, C Tomas Plekanec, F Joel Armia
LOST: LW Max Pacioretty, F Alex Galchenyuk
PLAYER TO WATCH: Carey Price. The all-world goaltender could be the difference between Montreal being one of the worst teams in the NHL and a playoff contender. He has the ability to steal games and will have to stay healthy and be at his best to have the Canadiens even dreaming about returning to the postseason.
OUTLOOK: Absent a heroic performance from Price, the Canadiens are in rebuilding territory after trading Pacioretty and Galchenyuk and counting on Domi and a youth movement to generate some optimism in hockey-mad Montreal. It's tough to see this as a playoff team on paper, especially with top defenseman Shea Weber out for at least the first couple of months of the regular season.
TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 49-26-7, 105 points. Finished third in Atlantic Division.
LOST to Boston Bruins in first round of playoffs.
COACH: Mike Babcock (Fourth season, 16th NHL season)
ADDED: C John Tavares, F Tyler Ennis
LOST: LW James van Riemsdyk, C Tyler Bozak, F Leo Komarov, F Matt Martin, D Roman Polak
PLAYER TO WATCH: Tavares. Even on a team with Auston Matthews, all eyes are on Tavares after the Toronto native signed a $77 million, seven-year contract to play for his hometown Leafs. He's a point-a-game playmaker, and with Matthews and Nazem Kadri following Tavares down the middle of the lineup, Toronto has arguably the best center depth in the league.
OUTLOOK: The Maple Leafs are a legitimate Stanley Cup contender for the first time in the salary-cap era that began in 2005. The goaltending of Frederik Andersen has to be on point, and the suspect defense has to perform, but Toronto should make the playoffs easily and could become the first Canadian-based team in the final since Vancouver in 2011.
Habs look to finally break through vs. rival Leafs

The Montreal Canadiens will be trying to win their third consecutive game Saturday night when they visit the Toronto Maple Leafs, their old rival who themselves will be attempting to stop a three-game losing streak.

The Maple Leafs have won both meetings between the teams this season, needing overtime each time.

The Maple Leafs finished a 3-2-1 trip with two losses in a row then lost the opener of a four-game homestand Thursday night, 3-2 to the Washington Capitals.

"We actually skated probably better than I thought after coming back off the trip," Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock told reporters. "The bottom line is you've got to get points and we've suddenly got one of them (for a 3-2 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday) in three games."

After losing 4-3 in overtime to the Maple Leafs on Feb. 9 in Montreal, the Canadiens lost their next three games, all on the road. They returned home to win two in a row, including a 5-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday, the 15th time this season that the Canadiens have scored five or more goals.

"I think it's just the fact that we're playing fast," Canadiens coach Claude Julien told the media. "When you play fast, there's nothing harder to defend than when you're facing some speed coming at you. Our transition game has been pretty good. Guys coming back hard gives you the opportunity to turn up the ice and then go back with some speed instead of maybe being lazy."

The Maple Leafs had 42 shots on goal against the Capitals but did not score until the third period - and their second goal came in the final minute. They were shut out by the Arizona Coyotes last Saturday and were held to two third-period goals in St. Louis on Tuesday.

Babcock feels that the goals will come. "I've liked the way we've played most nights here, to be honest with you," he said. "I usually find over time if you do good things, good things happen. I'm not as concerned about it. I thought we had, like I said, exceptional looks (against Washington)."

"Obviously, we didn't get the result but we had a lot of pucks on net," said Toronto's John Tavares, who scored his 34th goal of the season against the Capitals. "We did some good things but I think at times we didn't sustain some of the momentum that we would have liked."

The Maple Leafs were without Nazem Kadri Thursday after the center picked up a concussion during the game Tuesday. He did not practice Friday, nor did defenseman Jake Gardiner, who has had back spasms in the past. "I don't know if it's called hurt," Babcock said after practice Friday. "Today was a maintenance day. We'll see tomorrow."

As for Montreal, Brendan Gallagher scored his first career hat trick in his 467th game Thursday.

Led by Gallagher's 26 goals, the Habs have eight players on pace to reach at least 15 goals.

"If you look at our lines, there's a lot of talented players who know how to put the puck in the net," Gallagher said. "I think what we've been able to do this year is use our depth to come at teams, so nobody's really overused or over-exhausted during the game. When you're fresh, it goes a long way."
