TORONTO – SPORTS – William Nylander scored twice, including 1:06 into overtime, to help the Toronto Maple Leafs come from behind to put out the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Wednesday in the lone Canadian Division game played.
“I just got some speed and got a nice pass from [Auston Matthews] and was able to take it to the net. It was nice to be able to score finally,” said Nylander after the game.
Michael Hutchinson made 21 saves for the Maple Leafs (15-4-2), who tied the game with 1:28 left in the third period.
“It’s always fun [to be in a low-scoring game], but as the game goes on, especially when you’re feeling like you’re on top of your game, you just become more at ease as the game goes on,” said Hutchinson. “It doesn’t matter if you’re up a goal or down a goal, the longer the game goes, the more comfortable you feel and you’re kind of just in a zone.”
