Hyman, Matthews Score Twice in Win Over the Blues

Hyman, Matthews Score Twice in Win Over the Blues

The teams meet for the first time this season on Tuesday.

"We got off to a good start, (Andersen) made some big saves and we got to roll all four lines during the game", Matthews said. Jason Spezza also scored for the Maple Leafs, and Frederik Andersen made 26 saves.

David Perron and Ivan Barbashev scored for St. Louis, which has lost two in a row following a four-game winning streak. Jake Allen allowed one goal on 16 shots in relief of Binnington.

The captain of the Blues Alex Pietrangelo was disappointed by the effort.

"We just weren't ready". At the start of the first period I thought we had some decent looks. At the same stage a year ago, they had 20 victories, 41 points and were second in the 31-team league, while they had 19 wins, 39 points and occupied fifth in 2017-18. "We know what we did wrong". At the end of the first, the score was 4-1 in favor of the Maple Leafs.

The Maple Leafs jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a Zach Hyman goal. Jay Bouwmeester missed on a puck at the Toronto blue line, and Matthews used Justin Faulk as a screen to beat Binnington.

Johnsson blocked a shot in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to Colorado.

Blues: 6-3-1, averaging 2.9 goals, 4.7 assists, 3.1 penalties and 6.8 penalty minutes while giving up 1.8 goals per game with a.946 save percentage. "We have confidence", Zach Hyman said. "We had some pretty good moments and got rewarded with some of our chances". He pushed the lead to 5-1 with a power-play goal midway through the second period, his 18th goal of the season. The issue has plagued the Leafs for a while - they were last in the National Hockey League in 2018-19 with 211 power plays, and through games on Saturday, had 86 power plays, more than only Montreal, Anaheim and the New York Islanders. He managed a flawless pass from Pierre Engvall as they introduced themselves to goalkeeper St. Louis Jordan Binnington. "I saw a little bit of him in training camp, played with him on the same team", Matthews said.

"We feel good about the game we're coming off of", said Keefe, whose team will also visit Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton on the upcoming trip. "I had full confidence that it would please him".

"We're not anxious about him". It was one of the best of the season. He's going to do his thing.

"We just bent, we just gave up". In Keefe's eight games, the Leafs have had just 12 power plays and scored on five of them.
