Lars Eller had a goal and two assists and the Montreal Canadiens sent Toronto a pre-playoff message Saturday night, defeating the sluggish Maple Leafs 4-1.
Ben Scrivens's stock is on a serious rise. He didn't show much in his 11 games with the Leafs last season, going 4-5-2 with a 3.13 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage. However, he returned to the AHL and promptly bricked up the net, carrying his team all the way to the Calder Cup finals. Scrivens's work with the Marlies, particularly in the postseason, have earned him a legitimate shot at the back-up job with the Leafs. Of course, that's contingent on the Buds not trading for a netminder before camp. Still, Scrivens can be an NHL starter some day and should be handcuffed to James Reimer come draft day.
