It happened again. Auston Matthews with another overtime snipe to give the Leafs a 4-3 win over Montreal.
Matthews had just dished out a cardiac moment when he snapped a bullet in O/T Monday night against Chicago. It’s becoming old habit for Matthews, who now has five goals in his first five games.
The win snapped a 14-game stretch of Leafs losses to the Habs. And it was Coach Babcock’s 600th win as a head coach in the NHL.
James van Riemsdyk and Patrick Marleau both had goals, plus there was a second Matthews goal in the mix.
Leafs goaltender Freddie Andersen made 31 saves, including a big stop in overtime.
The Leafs next action is Tuesday night as Matthews and the Leafs take on Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals.
