Hockey Night In Canada - And One (Maybe Both) Goes Home

from David Stubbs at Habs Inside/Out,

Saturday’s Toronto forecast calls for cloudy skies, a high of 1 C, a 70-per-cent chance of flurries – and a 100-per-cent chance of monster TV ratings for CBC’s Hockey Night In Canada and RDS’s La Soirée du Hockey.
The Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs will meet Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Air Canada Centre to see who goes to the Eastern Conference playoffs and who goes golfing.

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail (Friday edition),

The Leafs were hopelessly inept offensively last night in losing 5-2 to the New York Islanders. All that saved them was the New York Rangers’ 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens, which kept the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference, held by the Canadiens, one point away.
But the Leafs cannot let the Canadiens gain a point in an overtime loss when they meet at the Air Canada Centre tomorrow night. The Canadiens hold all the advantages in the tiebreakers if the teams finish the season tied in points.

from the AP via Newsday,

The Islanders trail ninth-place Toronto by one point and eighth-place Montreal by two points. New York has two games remaining, while Montreal and Toronto face each other Saturday night in their finales.
