Coming off a 3-2 overtime loss in Washington Friday night, only a few Canadiens players were scheduled to skate at 11:30 Saturday morning in Brossard as the team prepares to face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada (7 p.m., CBC, RDS, TSN Radio 690). The Canadiens announced there would be no media availability on Saturday morning.
The loss in Washington ended a four-game winning streak for the Canadiens.
The Leafs are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss Friday night to the Sabres, the worst team in the NHL, in Buffalo. It was the third straight loss for the Leafs.
This will be the second meeting of the season between the Canadiens and Leafs with Toronto winning the season opener 4-3 at the Bell Centre. The next meeting between the two teams after Saturday night will be on Jan. 18 in Toronto.
