The Canadiens are back in Ontario on Sunday to face the Maple Leafs in Toronto just over 24 hours after defeating the Senators in Ottawa on Saturday.

In a rare Saturday matinee, Michel Therrien's men came from behind late in the third period to force overtime. Phillip Danault improved Montreal's preseason record to 2-1-1 with the OT winner, while Paul Byron enjoyed a 3-point outing, scoring the opening goal and assisting on the two others.

The Maple Leafs meanwhile are coming off an impressive 8-1 over the the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. Peter Holland and Matt Hunwick each scored a pair of goals in the effort.

A number of Habs who were in action in Ottawa will be back in uniform in Toronto, notably forwards Michael McCarron, Nikita Sherbak, Stefan Matteau, Jacob De La Rose, Daniel Audette, and Charles Hudon.Tweet from @CanadiensMTL: Tonight's lineup in Toronto. #GoHabsGo pic.twitter.com/OTMqh2rUbP
