Montreal Canadiens: Three Players To Focus On In Preseason Opener

The Montreal Canadiens begin their lengthy preseason tonight with a contest in Toronto against the Maple Leafs.

The two teams of course met in the opening round of the 2021 postseason with the Canadiens shutting the Maple Leafs down in Game 7 and advancing all the way to the Stanley Cup Final.

Now we switch our focus to the upcoming season, and the battles for the final lineup spots really heats up with the exhibition games starting. Teams don’t usually put a star studded lineup together for their first preseason game, especially on the road, but the Canadiens have a handful of key players playing tonight.
