The Randy Carlyle era begins in Montreal tonight as the Leafs look to break a six game losing streak that has dropped them back to 12th, five points out of the final playoff spot.

Members of Tank Nation will be looking at the game with much anticipation as a loss tonight would drop the Leafs to within three points of the 15th placed Habs.

Jonas Gustavsson starts in goal. Matthew Lombardi will center the fourth line with Steckel between Kulemin and Connolly on the third. Mike Komisarek will play over Cody Franson.
