Found February 09, 2012 on NorthWest Sports Beat:
The Toronto Maple Leafs will host their Original Six rival Montreal Canadiens this Saturday, giving fans at home the opportunity to play a traditional rivalry on the NHL betting line. Though recently it’s been the Habs with the upper-hand between the two franchises, don’t rule out the boys in blue as they look to snap a growing playoff drought in 2012.

Not only have the Maple Leafs come out on top in head-to-head play against Montreal this season (Toronto is 3-0-1), they sit higher up both in the Northeast standings and on the NHL betting line.

With 25/1 odds of winning the Stanley Cup in 2012, one might even think that the Leafs are an outside contender. The same cannot be said of the Habs at 75/1.

Is it all coming together in Toronto? Is this the year the famed franchise redeems itself on the ice? Weigh in as they try their luck in the latest chapter of hockey’s greatest rivalry.
