Money Line: -172.00 Toronto (Home)
The Maple Leafs are under a microscope this season, and nothing less than a Stanley Cup will satisfy their fan base, the media and the organization. They looked like a legitimate contender last year, but an early exit from the playoffs at the hands of rivals Montreal was a bitter pill to swallow. They have an opportunity to exorcise their demons here in a massive revenge game in their season opener. This won't be the same Montreal team that they faced in the playoffs. Carey Price and Shea Weber won't be in the lineup when the Habs take the ice in Toronto. These teams met three times in the pre-season, and the Leafs won two of those three games. The favorite is 26-12 in the last 38 meetings.
