2003-04 Regular Season Schedule Announced

The Toronto Maple Leafs will host Original Six rival the Montreal Canadiens on October 11 to open their 77th season in the National Hockey League. The Stanley Cup champion New Jersey Devils will oppose the Maple Leafs at Continental Airlines Arena in Toronto's first road game October 16.

Saturday night games dominate the Maple Leafs schedule with Toronto playing 25 times, with 17 of the contests to be played at Air Canada Centre. The team will also play 18 games on Thursday (four at home and 14 on the road) and 17 games on Tuesday (15 at home and two on the road). The Maple Leafs do not have home games scheduled for Wednesday, Friday or Sunday.

Toronto will play 15 games in November (four at home and 11 on the road) and January (nine at home and six on the road), the two busiest months for the club. The Maple Leafs will close out the schedule with a two-game road trip with the season finale April 3 at Ottawa.

The Maple Leafs will play Northeast Division rivals six times this season as opposed to five times last year. Anaheim, Dallas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose and Minnesota will not travel to Toronto to play the Maple Leafs in 2003-04.
