The lede from the MTL Gazette:

Let’s start off by conceding the Toronto Maple Leafs are a very good hockey team with lots of firepower and a goaltender who is on a hot streak.

Conversely, the Canadiens aren’t a very good hockey team and the goaltender whose play had given them a semblance of respectability appears to have a hit a wall.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Auston Matthews
« on: Yesterday at 10:43:50 PM »
Well Babcock hinted earlier that Matthews will probably play tonight.  We'll see.  It's a big game tonight, especially for Montreal.  Their season has really gone sideways, it could be a real mess there soon.

Like REAL soon.  Like tonight.  ;D

You know, he hasn't been real conspicuous tonight but I have been watching and boy was I ever wrong to doubt acquiring Marleau.  He is dead-solid-perfect almost all the time -- positioning, always making the smart play.  He almost never makes big mistakes.

It's hard to say if he's a $6.25mil player (he probably isn't), but yeah he's been consistently solid all season.

He's worth the money just as a stabilizer -- especially if they decide to move any of the vet UFAs before the end of the season.

MotM: Easy.  Andersen.
HM: Hard.  What the hey, I'll say The Boss with the GWG.

Uh ... Matthews seems to have warmed up.

Going into Montreal on a Saturday night and a laying a whuppin' on the Habs.

Does it ever get old?

No it does not.

MATTHEWS!  What a feed by Marner!

EDIT: And by Martin!

Well we got a PP at least.

Man ... they almost put it away.

Way to board there Max.

Downtown!

Martin with Matthews and Marner?  Why would Babcock put all three of the Leafs top assists/60 minute forwards together on one line?

Just to mess with Julien's matchups as Hughson/Simpson were guessing?  Otherwise it makes no sense outside of the impenetrable universe that is Mike Babcock's Brain.
