Maple Leafs get ready to honour Mats Sundin

The Maple Leafs versus the Montreal Canadiens is always a crowd pleaser in Eastern Canada.  Tonight's clash at the Air Canada center is no different.  The Leafs have been skidding towards the playoffs and the Habs are doing their best to not finish at the bottom of their division so both teams have a lot at stake tonight.

The game however will be overshadowed by the special ceremony honouring Mats Sundin.  Sundin is a hockey god in Canada's Queen City and the Maple Leafs are paying their respects to his years of service by retiring his jersey.  Sundin was respected by everyone during his career and the Habs will continue that tradition of respect by coming to their bench while the ceremony is held in Toronto.

We like Montreal's chances in this clash.  They are red hot and naysayers are still counting them out of the playoffs.  They seem to doing all the right things right now and could surprise with a 4th straight win.  When no expects anything good; everything not bad is good and that is where the Habs are at.  All the pressure is on the Leafs and it might show in the way they play.  The Buds have dropped two in a row and we think a third lost could be in the cards. Either way it will be a good game so enjoy the action and catch the game recap on our site by Coach Nye.
