Hockey nights are officially back in two weeks' time. The Toronto Maple Leafs are set to battle against the Montreal Canadiens on July 28 just days before the Stanley Cup qualifiers get underway.
Details of the NHL schedule in Toronto were finally released on July 14 and we now know more about what the season restart will look like in the 6ix. All Eastern Conference team games will be played in the city, while the Western Conference takes place in Edmonton.
Toronto Maple Leafs will return to action against the Montreal Canadiens
Before the qualifiers start, each team will play one exhibition game, starting July 28. That day will see two games in Toronto, the second of which will be the Leafs against the Canadiens.
