The Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Nashville Predators 2-1 to extend their win streak to three in tight checking battle of goaltenders Wednesday night. Below are the highlights from the game…
Matt Murray got started early channeling his inner Dominik Hasek with an acrobatic save on Tanner Jeannot…
He continued to be the Leafs best player of the first period by helping kill off a Dryden Hunt cross-checking penalty…
The Leafs opened the scoring late in the first with a transition goal. John Tavares netted a backhand under the arm of Juuse Saros for his 20th of the year…
Less than two minutes into the second frame the Leafs struggled to clear the zone and the Predators made them pay. Filip Forsberg found the back of the net with a slick move in front to knot it up 1-1…
Pierre Engvall with a brutal turnover in the defensive zone but Murray continues his stellar play stopping Ryan Johansen in tight. Still tied 1-1 in the third period…
Nino Neiderreiter collides with David Kampf in the neutral zone. No call on the play. Kampf leaves the game in concussion protocol but would return…
Later in the frame Morgan Reilly draws a four minute powerplay on a Mark Jankowski high-stick. The Leafs finally connect on the powerplay with 1:15 left. William Nylander looks off Saros to find Mitch Marner all alone for the game winning goal.
