(Sports Network) - The Montreal Canadiens go on the rebound tonight when they welcome the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Bell Centre.

Craig Rivet and Chris Higgins scored goals and Jose Theodore stopped 21 of 23 shots for the Canadiens, who played in a shootout for the first time.

Montreal's Andrei Markov carries a five-game points streak into tonight's game. He has one goal and six assists during the run.

The Canadiens will host Florida on Tuesday.

Toronto, meanwhile, has lost three of its first five games to begin this month. On Friday the Leafs dropped a 5-2 contest in Buffalo, as Tim Connolly scored two goals and Martin Biron made 27 saves to lead the Sabres. Buffalo scored three unanswered third-period goals to break a 2-2 tie.

Alexander Steen and Eric Lindros provided goals for Toronto, and Ed Belfour stopped 25-of-29 shots in net.

Lindros, who tallied eight goals in the first 10 games of the season, ended a six-game drought without finding the net.

The Maple Leafs, who are 2-4-1 on the road, will host the NY Rangers on Tuesday

Montreal and Toronto have split two meetings this season, with each team winning in the other's building.
