TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs try to extend their franchise-record points streak to 14 games when they host the rival Montreal Canadiens on Saturday at the Air Canada Centre.

The Maple Leafs are 11-0-1-1 over their last 13 contests and are 3-0-1 since losing in overtime to St. Louis on December 9.

Toronto skated to a 2-2 tie against Washington on Friday behind goals from Mats Sundin and Alexei Ponikarovsky.

Making just his second start of the season, Trevor Kidd made 25 saves for the Leafs.

The Canadiens are 2-0-1 in their last three contests and are coming off a 5-4 overtime triumph over Nashville on Thursday.

Sheldon Souray recorded his first career hat trick and had an assist, while Mike Ribiero had four assists, all on power plays.

Souray netted the game-winning goal just 35 seconds into overtime.

The teams split their first two contests this season, with Montreal posting a 4-0 triumph here on October 11 and the Leafs countering with a 1-0 win on the road a week later.
