MONTREAL (Ticker) -- Perhaps a game against an old and bitter rival is what the Toronto Maple Leafs need to turn things around.

Winless in their last three games, the Leafs meet their long-time rival the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Toronto has been outscored, 18-8, in its last three games. The last two losses have been very embarrassing, as the Maple Leafs were hammered twice by Ottawa, including a 7-2 rout on Thursday.

The Leafs have had trouble keeping the puck out of their net, surrendering 43 goals in 11 games.

In Thursday's loss at Ottawa, new goaltender Andrew Raycroft stopped only 33-of-40 shots, falling to 4-4-2 in 10 starts.

The Canadiens are coming off a huge last-second 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday. Defenseman Andrei Markov scored the game-winner on the power play with just 1.2 seconds left.

Michael Ryder and Christopher Higgins also scored and Cristobal Huet turned away 34 shots.

Montreal has been excellent on the power play this season, going 12-for-47 (25.5 percent).

The Canadiens have won each of the last two meetings with the Maple Leafs.
