MONTREAL (Ticker) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs did not even remotely resemble a playoff club in their last loss.

Toronto tries to rebound from a disturbing defeat when it visits the Montreal Canadiens in an important battle on Saturday.

The Maple Leafs have 77 points and are in ninth place, one point out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They looked sluggish in a 5-1 loss to lowly Washington on Friday.

Nik Antropov scored the lone goal for Toronto, which is 4-5-0 in its last nine contests. Antropov has goals in three straight games and has a career-high 15 goals in 43 games this season.

The Canadiens have 76 points and are 11th in the East. They lost, 5-3, to Pittsburgh (40-21-10) on Friday and have won just twice in their last seven games.

Defenseman Sheldon Souray, Christopher Higgins and Andrei Markov scored for Montreal, which scored three power-play goals and is ranked second in the NHL with an extra skater.
