The Toronto Maple Leafs are now 9-2-1, which is good enough for both the best record in the North Division and best record in the NHL. Auston Matthews continued his dominance scoring two more goals and now has 10 in 11 games. Mitch Marner added three assists to his Maple Leafs lead in points and Wayne Simmonds had two goals before leaving due to injury.
It was a good game for Frederik Andersen, too. Stopping 27 of 28 saves (he should’ve had a shutout, but the referees ruined that.)
But the Vancouver Canucks — losers of their last four games have now given up five-plus goals in each of them. They play the Maple Leafs again on Monday and maybe their attitude changes, maybe it doesn’t. Only time will tell and for them — it’s probably going by very slow.
Here’s tonight’s video! I hope you enjoy it!
