MONTREAL (Ticker) -- The red-hot Toronto Maple Leafs try to tie the longest road winning streak in franchise history on Saturday when they visit the Bell Centre to face the struggling Montreal Canadiens.

The Maple Leafs have won their last six road games since losing in Buffalo on January 24. Their franchise-record seven-game run came during the 1960-61 season.

Toronto extended its overall winning streak to four games with a 6-2 road victory over the Washington Capitals on Thursday.

Gary Roberts had two goals and an assist and Mikael Renberg, Jonas Hoglund, Travis Green and Robert Reichel also scored as the Maple Leafs won for the ninth time in 10 games.

Alexander Mogilny had three assists for Toronto, which tied a season high with four power-play goals.

The Maple Leafs have the fourth-best road record in the Eastern Conference at 15-11-2-1.

Montreal has dropped seven of 10 games following a five-game unbeaten streak, including a 2-1 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday.

Jan Bulis had the lone goal for the Canadiens, who have scored just 11 goals in their last seven games.

Montreal is two points behind the Boston Bruins for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Maple Leafs are 2-1-1 against the Canadiens this season, including a 1-0-1 record here.
