Auston Matthews' big game helps lift Toronto to a Game 3 victory

Auston Matthews' big game helps lift Toronto to a Game 3 victory

"I thought today was the first time that maybe we weren't scared enough of them and it looked like it because our competition level wasn't good enough", Babcock said afterward. Luckily it did. Those plays kind of go in slo-mo.

A Morgan Rielly shot made its way through Holtby, and as the puck inched toward the goal line, Wilson dived and swept it from harm's way.

"I always say that you make your money during the season, but you make your reputation in the playoffs, and right now he's showing everybody that he's a gamer", Senators coach Guy Boucher said of Ryan. "You never want to see that happen". I thought they were risky. "High commitment. He's a growing young player who is physically strong".

Zach Hyman, James van Riemsdyk, Auston Matthews and Tyler Bozak all scored in defeat for Toronto, which made a late charge, while Frederik Andersen surrendered five goals on 27 shots. Mitch Marner and William Nylander each had two assists. He's got to play more.

As the Calgary Flames prepare to host the Anaheim Ducks for Game 4, they'll be fighting for their playoff lives. But Toronto's shooters looked like they were squeezing old wooden sticks into sawdust. We weren't very good.

In Game 3 of the playoff series between the Washington Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Capitals finally managed several important firsts.

TORONTO-Braden Holtby gave everyone quite a scare Wednesday morning when he went down briefly following a collision with Marcus Johansson. Toronto goaltender Fredrik Andersen stopped 22 shots.

With a 2-1 series lead, the Leafs have already accomplished far more than anyone anticipated.

Mattis says North Korea missile test meant to provoke
Delegates hold "Make America First Again" posters on the Republican National Convention floor in Cleveland, Ohio, July 20, 2016. Washington is anxious that North Korea may soon build a nuclear-tipped missile that could reach the United States.

"One team relaxes, feels pretty good about themselves, talks to everybody and they all tell you how great you are", Babcock warned. Hyman played the familiar role of muscle, helping to set up a goal before drawing the Lars Eller high-sticking penalty which led to Tyler Bozak's overtime victor.

Johansson, obviously, was relieved that Holtby was fine.

One of the subtle adjustments by Washington was to move Wilson up to the third line.

Many Leaf players are in their formative years.

Matthews stuck with the rebound and eventually batted the puck out of mid-air for Toronto's first goal.

Oshie restored the two-goal margin 59 seconds later when he broke in alone uncontested to score from the slot.

That stood as the victor, as Tyler Bozak scored with 25.8 seconds remaining with Andersen on the bench in favour of an extra attacker.

As they did in Game 3, the Capitals scored the first two goals of the game early in the first period.

China seriously concerned over North Korea's nuclear programme
North Korea's state television aired footage of a choral performance attended by Kim Jong Un, the elder Kim's grandson, on Sunday. It also states that North Korea's "illegal ballistic missile activities are contributing to its development of nuclear weapons".

Leafs coach Mike Babcock has been complimentary of Rielly's performance in his first National Hockey League playoff experience, where he's asked a lot of Rielly and fellow blueliner Jake Gardiner.

Fifty-nine seconds after the Matthews goal, T.J. Oshie scored his second of the game after a Toronto turnover.

Toronto almost scored again, but Wilson made his save.

On his next shift, Wilson barreled over Rielly near the Washington blue line and then finished off a 2-on-1 sequence with Burakovsky for a 4-1 lead at 16:04.

Because of this nice round number of a potential half-century anniversary, Leaf fans are rallying. But failing to score with almost two full minutes of a 5-on-3 advantage seemed to tiresome any comeback chances. Backstrom was serving a holding-the-stick minor.

The Capitals won't have shutdown defenseman Karl Alzner, missing his second consecutive game with an upper-body injury, a significant blow to their depth and penalty killing even though Nate Schmidt brings an offensive spark.

Game 6 goes Sunday at the ACC, with Game 7 in Washington next Tuesday, if it's necessary. "His rehab is going to be a long time.".
