In a rather sloppy game, the Leafs edged the NJ Devils 4-2 Thursday evening at the ACC.
William Nylander was once again the top player in the game, putting together a goal and an assist. That assist gave him a point in his 10th consecutive game, which established a new Maple Leafs rookie record for longest point streak, surpassing the previous high of nine games shared by Gus Bodnar (1943), Bob Nevin (1960) and Dan Daoust (1983).
Auston Matthews added a couple assists. That makes 60 points (33 goals, 27 assists) this season so far.
Despite looking like he was fighting the puck early on, Curtis McElhinney made 30 saves for the win.
The Leafs next take on the Sabres in Buffalo Saturday evening.
