January 15, 2019 2:46 AM Leafs turn in stinker against the previously struggling Avalanche

And then the Avalanche played downhill. Gabriel Landeskog on a deflection at the 6:33 mark; a Nathan MacKinnon breakaway that was stopped a minute later; Mikko Rantanen stripping Nazem Kadri to end a two-turnover Toronto shift with a goal. Carl Soderberg then outbattled Jake Gardiner for a puck that had been knocked loose on a Toronto power play and scored 667

January 11, 2019 3:02 AM Tavares leads Maple Leafs to victory in Jersey

Whatever was wrong with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the New Jersey Devils have often provided the cure. The Leafs were the better team from the drop of the puck and — despite stubbing their toe with some a sloppy five minutes in the second period — skated off with a 4-2 win in New Jersey on Thursday night. The Leafs had won both previous meetings by lopsided 183

December 27, 2018 11:05 PM Maple Leafs’ Auston Matthews voted as Atlantic Division all-star captain

Auston Matthews’ selection as one of four captains for the NHL’s all-star game reflects the impact he’s had on the league in just his third season with the Maple Leafs.

December 23, 2018 3:05 AM Game Centre: Leafs explode in third period to beat Rangers

Some nights with the Maple Leafs, you just have to wait. The offence is there. The floodgates will open. It’s just a matter of when. On Saturday night it was the third period, when Mitch Marner scored twice, while Andreas Johnsson and Morgan Rielly also found the net and the Leafs won their third in a row, 5-3 over the New York Rangers. It might not have been the easiest 150

December 20, 2018 5:10 PM Matthews, Marner succeed as role players with The Nutcracker

Both Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews were a little awestruck, a little nervous, and definitely enthused after their cameo performance in the The Nutcracker on Wednesday night. “It was nerve-wracking, going out there just before,” Matthews said at the Leafs’ morning skate Thursday, with his performance with Marner becoming the talk of the dressing room. “But you go out there 163

December 19, 2018 2:54 AM Game Centre: Tavares show, Marleau milestone spark Leafs past Devils

Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said he’d like to see his team “machine-like” rather than “fun to watch.” The Leafs were just that in a 7-2 win over the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center in Newark on Tuesday night, snapped a two-game winless skid in the process. John Tavares and Auston Matthews scored 1:57 apart in the first period, while Patrick 145

CHICAGO—The Blackhawks traded Nick Schmaltz to the Arizona Coyotes for Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini in a swap involving three former NHL first-round picks. Schmaltz is off to a slow start with two goals and nine assists in 23 games, but the forward is just 22 years old and coming off a breakout season. He was selected by Chicago with the 20th pick in the 2014 draft 139

November 26, 2018 4:25 AM Monday NHL preview: Boston Bruins at Toronto Maple Leafs

Two of the game’s most dynamic wingers will be on display. Boston’s David Pastrnak is among the league leaders with 17 goals, including a hat trick against the Leafs on Nov. 10, but has been cold of late — a lone assists in his last five games. Mitch Marner leads the Leafs with 30 points, half of them (two goals, 13 assists) since Auston Matthews (shoulder) 155

October 30, 2018 12:08 AM A month without Matthews hurts Leafs in many ways

On the surface, Auston Matthews looks like the laboratory-built vision of the ideal hockey player. A strapping six-foot-three and 220-some pounds, he skates like a dream, shoots like a laser, plays keepaway like it’s glued to his stick. Certainly he’s put up the numbers to justify the fawning. With 84 goals in 155 games as a Maple Leaf, nobody’s scored 234

October 29, 2018 12:28 PM Auston Matthews to miss four weeks with shoulder injury

Matthews played the full 82-game season in his rookie year, but missed 20 games last year due to a few ailments, including 10 between Feb. 22 and March 22 with a sore right shoulder. Matthews was the team’s leading scorer with 10 goals and six assists, though he has gone five games without a goal and four without a point. The Leafs play the Calgary Flames 110
