Recap: Toronto vs. Montreal

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - James Reimer made 36 saves to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Tyler Bozak, Leo Komarov and Jay McClement all lit the lamp for the Maple Leafs, who sit three points ahead of the Ottawa Senators (48) for the fifth seed in the upcoming Eastern Conference playoffs.

"We're confident as a group in here," said Bozak. "We go into every game thinking we can win as long as we stick to our game and play the system we have in place."

Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel also tallied, while James van Riemsdyk added a pair of assists in the triumph.

Davis Drewiske recorded the lone goal for the Canadiens, who hold a one-point lead over the Boston Bruins atop the Northeast Division standings.

"We had some good scoring chances and we were skating well," said Montreal head coach Michel Therrien. "There have been a few games we probably shouldn't have won and our goalie stole them for us. Tonight was a tough one. But this is a team with a lot of character and these are the kinds of athletes who are going to bounce back from this."

Carey Price allowed three goals on four shots before he was replaced in net by Peter Budaj, who allowed two goals on 24 shots.

Toronto scored three times in the first 10:25 of the game. Bozak scored a power play goal 1:59 in. Kessel passed the puck to van Riemsdyk in traffic in front of the net. With Bozak closing in on the goal, van Riemsdyk passed the disc through a defender's legs and Bozak buried it into the net.

Komarov added this third tally of the season at the 8:08 mark. Ryan O'Byrne corralled a loose puck in the right corner. O'Byrne then found Komarov, who snuck one past Price to make it 2-0.

McClement followed with a spectacular backhand goal just over two minutes later to make it 3-0.

Drewiske got Montreal on the board with 6:52 left in the opening period, but Phaneuf added a goal nearly four minutes later to put the hosts up 4-1.

Kessel's tally 4:42 into the second accounted for the final margin.
