Best bets: Dealer’s choice

Oh, yes, you could watch Leafs-Canadiens, because we hear tell that those teams, um, don’t like each other (to put it mildly), but the Leafs have not been quite as good as of late. Expect them to put up a good fight nevertheless when they pay a visit to the Habs.

Stay up late for Blackhawks-Canucks, too, especially if you know how much those teams also don’t like each other. The rivalry may not be as old as Leafs-Habs, but it can be pretty vitriolic all on its own.
