Habs v/s Leafs - Just Like a Game 7 Matchup

The Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs haven't met in the NHL playoffs since 1979 but tonight's regular-season finale for both clubs is as close as it gets.
''It's Saturday night, it's the last game of the season and both teams need to get the win,'' Leafs winger Darcy Tucker said Friday. ''It's going to be a lot of fun to play in.''
For the Habs, one point ahead of the Leafs for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the script is simple. Win and they're in.
The Leafs? Not so simple.
Should the Islanders win both their weekend games at Philadelphia and at New Jersey, Toronto is knocked out even with a win over the Canadiens because New York would have 92 points, one more than the Leafs.
