In this edition of The Weekender, the Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Montreal Canadiens, Hot Docs and three more things to do in Toronto.

Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple Leaf’s final tilt of the regular season pits them against their long-running rivals, and potential opening-round opponents in the postseason, the Montreal Canadiens. Expect the Air Canada Centre to be brimming with anticipation for the home team’s first playoff appearance in nine agonizing years. $79-$459. April 27. Air Canada Centre, 40 Bay St.

Hot Docs
North America’s largest documentary film festival is showing more than 170 films from more than 35 countries this year. Highlights include Sundance award-winners Blood Brother and Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer and Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children, which follows former general and activist Roméo Dallaire in his crusade to end the use of child soldiers in war-ravaged regions around the world. $15 per film. April 25-May 5. Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, 506 Bloor St. W.

Night of the Living Dead Live
The interactive stage production interprets George A. Romero’s classic zombie flick Night of The Living Dead. The audience is placed in a farmhouse set piece and fight off hoards of the undead alongside the cast. It’s the next best thing to being in an episode of The Walking Dead. $20. April 23-May 19. Theatre Passe Muraille, 16 Ryerson Ave.

Stars on Ice
A full roster of skating superstars performs in the touring ice show, including headliner Patrick Chan, a Toronto-born, three-time world champion. Canadian figure-skating icon Kurt Browning also makes an appearance. $19. April 26-27. Air Canada Centre, 40 Bay St.

Wedding Co. Spring Show
Local online magazine The Wedding Co. brings 40 artisans, bakers, florists, photographers and more to The Drake Hotel for an intimate one-stop-shop wedding show. $10. April 27. The Drake Hotel, 1150 Queen St. W.
