Toronto Maple Leafs @ Montreal Canadiens Tips


The greatest and oldest rivalry in the NHL has its latest installment on Thursday when the 14-time Stanley Cup winners the Toronto Maple Leafs travel to Montreal to take on the Canadiens, themselves 24-time NHL champions. 

However, this season Toronto have been the form team, and I feel they will continue their recent run of just one defeat in eight games with victory over Montreal on Thursday. 

  • Toronto have won seven of last eight games
  • Toronto just whitewashed Vancouver 3-0
  • Montreal have lost 2 of last 5 games
  • Montreal are 3-2 at their Centre Bell stadium

Head to Head


Toronto and Montreal have played each other 81 times, and are the oldest rivalry in the NHL. Montreal currently lead their head to head by 42 wins to 39. 

Dating back to the start of 2018, the Maple Leafs lead the rivalry by 6-4, although Toronto’s win in January snapped a four-game losing streak vs Montreal. 

Toronto Maple Leafs Form 


Toronto are currently top of the NHL’s all-Canadian North Division, with 21 points. They have won 10 and lost 3 this season, and are three points clear of the Montreal Canadiens, who have a game in hand. 

These two teams are well clear of the chasing pack and will surely decide between them who wins the division.

The Maple Leafs will be travelling to Montreal to take on the Canadiens, and they have won four of their six games on the road. Montreal’s home record is a less than impressive 3-2. 

Toronto come into this game off three straight wins over the Vancouver Canucks. The Maple Leafs have lost just one of their last eight games, and even that was only via a 4-3 overtime defeat to Edmonton. 

Montreal Canadiens Form 


The Canadiens and the Maple Leafs have been neck and neck all season, so this result will  – if Toronto win - separate them further or  – if Montreal win - bring them closer together. 

Montreal have won 8 and lost 4 this season, and are three points adrift of Toronto in the hunt for top spot in the all-Canadian North Division, assembled this season by the NHL to limit the movement of the Canadian teams during this pandemic.  

Montreal go into the game against Toronto having lost two of their last five games. The Canadiens were 2-1 winners over Ottawa last Saturday, avenging the previous day’s 3-2 defeat by the Senators.

Verdict

Toronto are third favourites to lift the Stanley Cup whereas Montreal are only 14th choice to win by the bookies. This is a fair reflection of the difference in the standard of ice hockey each team has been playing this season.
 
Because this is such an intense rivalry, this game will be hard fought, with the edge going to the form team, the Montreal Maple Leafs, who will defeat the Montreal Canadiens by three goals or less.
