Maple Leafs Blowing in the Breeze?

The Toronto Maple Leafs head back onto the road after a short three-game homestand to take on a Penguins club they dropped a 4-2 decision against on Friday night.

Toronto beat the Vancouver Canucks a night later by the score of 3-2. After yielding two Vancouver goals in the first period, the Leafs exploded back with three scores in the middle frame. Superstar Auston Matthews scored his seventh goal of the season early in the second, which was also the team’s only power-play goal of the evening.

Veteran Jordie Benn netted the game-winner midway through the period for his first tally of the year. Kallgren came through with another strong performance, making 27 saves on 29 of the Habs’ total shots on goal.
