Weird 3-on-5 goal helps Devils beat Leafs, remain unbeaten

Weird 3-on-5 goal helps Devils beat Leafs, remain unbeaten

Matthews scored the overtime victor, breaking down the right side of the ice on a two-on-one rush and firing a ideal wrist shot over the shoulder of back-up goalie Anton Forsberg to give the Maple Leafs a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the Chicago Blackhawks.

"We didn't have any snap, we didn't have any juice, we didn't win any battles", Toronto coach Mike Babcock said.

"That's a huge one", said Leafs winger James van Riemsdyk. Reigning Calder Trophy recipient Auston Matthews has plenty of reason to be confident after scoring the overtime victor in Monday's 4-3 victory over Chicago and shredding New Jersey for six points (three goals, three assists) in three meetings last season. "We were watching the game live on TV and his release is so quick and so hard to read coming off his stick".

Auston Matthews, with his third of the season, cut it to 5-3 with 6:26 remaining and the Maple Leafs on a two-man advantage.

After an insane beatdown of the Jets that featured seven goals, the Toronto Maple Leafs somehow managed to score eight against the Ranges while chasing future Hall of Famer Henrick Lundqvist from his net. "And that's exactly what I expected". Obviously, I don't have to tell you to chime in with your own predictions, or to tell us how crazy/insane or otherwise bad at this we all are. "Sometimes, you get those guys together and those plays just happen, they're on the same wavelength the way they think the game". That's what we deserved tonight. New Jersey answered 34 seconds later when Wood tipped in Steven Santini's shot from the point.

Both teams had good scoring chances early but Andersen and Schneider held firm. The two goals give Wood career goal No. 9 and No. 10 in 63 National Hockey League games.

Pavel Zacha scored his first goal of the season to give the Devils a 3-2 lead at 9:58 of the second period. Nazem Kadri has two power-play goals this season and recorded four points in three encounters in 2016-17 against the Devils. Van Riemsdyk was in the box for slashing.

In Washington, Patric Hornqvist scored a power-play goal and assisted on another in his season debut to help Pittsburgh edge the hosts in their first meeting since the playoffs. The 1917-18 team scored 27.

ABOUT THE DEVILS (2-0-0): Jesper Bratt, who joined Marcus Johansson by scoring two goals and setting up another against the Sabres, is the first player in franchise history to record five points through the first two games of his career.

His NHL account now stands at six points. Devils rookie defenseman Will Butcher had two assists.
