The playoffs are just around the corner, and it's almost certain that the division winners, the Toronto Maple Leafs, will face off against the Montreal Canadiens. With the Canadiens being the last NHL team to secure a spot in the 2021 NHL playoffs, the stage is set for an intense series. They clinched their spot by taking their game against the Oilers to overtime, despite suffering an overtime loss and having lost four straight games.

Struggles and Strategies

The Canadiens have had a tough run, but there's a glimmer of hope as Carey Price took part in his first full practice since suffering a concussion on April 19. Additionally, Brendan Gallagher is expected to return from injury soon. With these key players potentially back in action, the question remains: Can the Canadiens overcome the formidable Maple Leafs?
