Matthews, Toews, Bishop named NHL's 3 stars of opening week

Rielly arrived in the National Hockey League with the "offensive defenceman" label when he was drafted fifth overall by the Leafs in 2012 and enjoyed his best season past year by registering a career-high 52 points.

Matthews and Tavares are just the third set of teammates in league history, and the first in 101 years, to each pot six-plus goals in their team's first four games of a season. He's really worked hard on his body.

Matthews is the third player in franchise history to compile multiple point games in each of the first four games of a season. As the game wore on, the Leafs got key contributions from Kapanen and Zach Hyman winning races to the puck to negate icings, both of which resulted in goals (for Ron Hainsey and Tavares respectively). Radulov scored for the third straight game, and Jamie Benn scored his third power-play goal. Keith, nearly certainly a future Hockey Hall of Famer, won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP in 2015 after he scored the game-winning goal in a deciding Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final against Tampa Bay.

"I still have fun and enjoy it and I feel like I still have lots to do", Keith said.

Frederik Andersen made 26 saves and Mitch Marner had a goal for the Maple Leafs.

A bunch of semi-relevant stuff happened around the world in 1967, I'm sure, but we all know that absolutely the most important thing to come out of that year was the Toronto (centre of the universe) Maple Leafs' 11th and final Stanley Cup victory.

Australian Senate Votes Against Motion That 'It Is Okay To Be White'
Senator Hanson tells Ben Fordham "I always have been against racism, right from the very beginning". The Greens and independent Derryn Hinch were among those who spoke against the motion.

Howard had 30 stops for the rebuilding Red Wings, who have lost their first four games for the first time since the 1980.

"He was the reason we battled back in the game and it's disappointing not to get that second point for him", Yeo said.

The Atlantic Division-leading Maple Leafs have won three straight. Much of the credit falls to coach Mike Babcock, who always keeps the greater good in perspective. "We haven't had a whole lot of O-zone time (when he has been on the ice), seems like heavy shifts, and that's probably part of it".

After a 3-2 overtime win over the Montreal Canadiens to open the season, the Maple Leafs have allowed an average of 5.5 goals while splitting their last two games against the Ottawa Senators and Chicago Blackhawks. The Red Wings announced before the game they will retire Hall of Famer Red Kelly's No. 4 jersey on February 1, 2019, when they host Toronto. Bishop ended up ceding two goals to the Leafs before the first period was over, thanks to strong play by the Leafs offence and special teams. Kelly played in Detroit from 1947-60 and for the Maple Leafs from 1960-67. The defenceman did not score in 81 games last season and had four the previous season as a rookie.
