TORONTO - Grade the Maple Leafs with a B for Friday’s practice, for the work put in by Dave Bolland and Jonathan Bernier.

One or both of the sore - and sorely missed - players could be back for Saturday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens, which winger Joffrey Lupul has described without too much hyperbole as the biggest of the year. Squeezed in the NHL standngs by a rally of teams beneath them, the Leafs need a win to either firm up their tenuous wildcard position or get back in the division’s top three. A regulation win over the Habs helps the latter cause and the possibility of pulling that off increases overall with a healthy Bolland and Bernier.
