In the Habs' Room: Carey Price spectacular in shootout win over Leafs

Leafs blow 3-goal lead in final period as Habs win in shootout

Leafs blow 3-goal lead in final period as Habs win in shootout

I mean, it's only been two games, but they're now on pace to go 82-0.

The last time these two teams faced off against one another was back on February 19 and it was the St. Louis Blues who came out as the victors, defeating the Maple Leafs with a score of 3-2.

Brendan Gallagher had a goal and two assists for Montreal (1-0-1). On Saturday night, they collapsed against a better team.

"It's no secret we were probably going to be worn out, but we cannot let that get in "The way and the cause of the bone-headed mistakes and [allow] opportunities at the other end that they're capitalizing on", Matthews said".

Montreal was on a power play when Kasperi Kapanen broke his stick while blocking Petry's shot from the blue line. When the game was on the line - in the overtime and in the shootout - Price was spectacular.

"At the same time, we have to rely on our strengths and what our game is all about".

Hopefully, Hutchinson can be as good tonight as he was against the Habs in the pre-season.

The Leafs brought in veteran Michal Neuvirth on a professional tryout in camp to challenge Hutchinson, if not win the the job. But Toronto needed just 2:16 to make it a 3-1 game, as with the teams skating 4-on-4, Marner slipped through the defense and got the puck to the net, then slid it into the crease and through Korpisalo for the goal.

Has it already come to this?

Senators acquire Vladislav Namestnikov from Rangers
The Rangers traded the Russian forward to the Senators in exchange for AHL defenseman Nick Ebert and a fourth-round pick in 2021. Namestnikov, a 2011 first-round pick, recorded 11 goals and 31 points with NY last season.

The home side grabbed the lead at 15:54 when Moore stripped Canadiens rookie winger Nick Suzuki behind Price's goal and fed Kerfoot, who snapped his first in blue and white after coming over along with Barrie in the Nazem Kadri trade with the Colorado Avalanche this summer. They headed to a shootout for the second time in as many games, and although they only have one shootout goal to show for the two contests, Paul Byron's snipe was enough to win last night's game. Just look at this thing.

Auston Matthews had two goals - his fourth and fifth of the season - while Alexander Kerfoot had a goal and two assists for his first three points with Toronto (2-0-1). He scored two on Craig Anderson and one on Joonas Korpisalo. "When you work hard, you get some good bounces".

I'm really hoping for another snipe like this over Price.

When asked to assess hockey's position within a theory that pinpoints the critical difference that divides how certain sports are won and lost, Mike Babcock spoke in ideal terms about the rather broad subject Saturday morning. It wasn't a great game conventionally speaking but it sure was entertaining and gave us heck of a Saturday night!

Singling out one play in the Leafs' loss to the Canadiens and using it as a major reason Toronto eventually fell wouldn't be wise, considering all that went wrong for the Leafs in the third period. Obviously, he's capable of doing that, but we don't want to rely on him every night. If the game is tight, we might not see much of them in third, but, if we do, it'll be a great learning experience for Sandin.

"My game hasn't been there as of late, for these first three games".

Here are five things you should know about the Canadiens-Maple Leafs game at Scotiabank Arena on Saturday (7 p.m., CBC, SN, TVA Sports, TSN 690 Radio).

"I know everybody knows it's a big mistake on my part, and if I knew that rule existed or if I thought I was actually going to hit his stick I wouldn't have done that", Kapanen said. The Leafs continually managed to get the best of the Habs last season. I guess we'll have to wait for a little while to see.
