TORONTO – Only one side appeared on time, but Toronto Maple Leafs only needed to play two thirds of a game to save another win against Montreal Canadiens, scoring three goals to beat their 6-3 day competitors Sad in amazing fashion.
Even after losing three consecutive games, the longest drought of the season, the Leafs failed to realize a pump discharge at 7 p.m., without showing up to play until the second phase.
The emergency shortfall for Saturday-Saturday drop is confusing, taking into account the recent swoon of Toronto and the fact that Montreal's volumes now hear at the Atlantic Division stalls.

"Their speed, their skills, they know how to play against us," said Lever's defender, Travis Dermott. "It's always a fight. We do not like each other too much."
Through speed, gravel and perseverance, Montreal flew out the gates, pulling three stick inflation on Toronto's brave and sloppy costume and reaching their 3-0 accommodation accommodation through the first 20 minutes.
First, Andrew Shaw, the veteran, sent to the crew, got up and got enough time with some signage protection from the rookie Andreas Johnsson to break two objections before finding the back of the net .
Tomas Tatar welcomed Frederik Andersen clean and high from the defender, Jeff Petry, then Petry himself added a power mark when he gave some zone attention more than enough time to plan his blast.
"They have a good hockey club," said Leafs Mike Babcock coach. "They're organized, they're good at every site, they have a good depth.
"I do not think they're doing anything that's surprised at least. You know what they do, they know what you & # 39; n do it, now you have to go there and you have to play more and longer and longer than they do. "
As this is too often true this winter, the local team needed to drop in to match the desire and despair of their opponents.
The Books, giving up most high risk opportunities even strength, doubled their power of play twice, to make this a second competition.
Auston Matthews suffered from Pricey Carey again again, breaking her 29 hole holes, contrasted with the history of grains. Matthews has a tradition of choosing high corners on the rest of the world's Habs & 39, and has now raised 10 goals over 10 career meetings against Montreal.
Tyler Ennis failed his first goal since returning from a broken ankle, finishing a great sequence by William Nylander and Patrick Marleau on the second power play unit.
The final 20 came with a great deal of welcome and vinegar, with Shea Weber engaging with Matthews in a puck battle turning transport. Max Domi is flatted by Johnsson with a monster-hugged monster. Players cared enough to scream on officers.
Lady Luck then interfered, and she was wearing a blue dress.
Marleau chips were harmless for Habs's domain to take a impossible bounce to predict from the corner boards, holding a Price behind the net, and Nylander stuck in a gift, tie & # 39; the game with the third goal not answered by Leafs. The building had lit.
The beekeeper, Zach Hyman, scored the winner with only 110 seconds left on the clock by driving to the net and home of the pig freely after driving by Mitch Marner.
Johnsson added an empty server, washing away the bitter taste of his first hiding assignment. And a freebie was given to Hyman when Weber throws it to the ice at an empty net cut.
