Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Seven weeks of excellence
Matthews scored twice Thursday in a 4-1 win over the Jets.
He came out of the first intermission like a man possessed. Off the opening faceoff, he put the puck through Mark Scheifele's legs at the blue line, skated to the left circle and scored five-hole on Connor Hellebuyck, just eight seconds into the frame. Then Matthews pushed the score to 2-0 at 3:47 of the same frame when he took a pass from Michael Bunting and almost instantly went blocker side from the slot. Matthews has five goals during a four-game goal streak and 11 points, including seven goals, on his current eight-game point streak. Since Nov. 26, he has put up at least a point in 20-of-22 games (15 goals, 15 assists).... See More ... See Less

Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Game-time call against Wings
Matthews (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision versus Detroit on Thursday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.
Matthews continues to deal with a lingering undisclosed injury that could sideline him for a second consecutive contest. While there is no replacing a world-class talent like Matthews, the task will fall to John Tavares, who moves into the first-line role. For his part, Matthews hasn't produced at the same level that saw him lead the league in goals last year, recording 20 goals through the opening 41 contests which is only good enough for 19th in the NHL....

Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Ruled out Wednesday
Matthews is dealing with an undisclosed injury that will sideline him against the Predators on Wednesday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.
Matthews missed Tuesday's practice for a maintenance day and did take part in Wednesday's optional game-day skate, so his absence is not expected to be long-term. Still, losing a world-class center for any stretch of time won't help the Leafs' offense. Without Matthews, John Tavares' line will become the first unit while William Nylander will move to center on the second line. With a back-to-back on the schedule, Matthews could be in danger of missing out versus the Red Wings on Thursday as well.... See More ... See Less

Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Goal streak over
Matthews picked up an assist Saturday in a 4-3 overtime loss to Tampa Bay.
He had his three-game goal streak end, but his point streak stands at four games and seven points (three goals, four assists). And the assist really was gorgeous. Matthews had the puck on and off his stick in a split second, and he fed William Nylander for an electric goal in the second period. He had eight shots Saturday, but his shooting percentage of 10.7 percent is well below Matthews' career mark of 16 percent. With even average luck, he'd have six more goals at this point. Expect things to get back to a regular pace soon. He's just too good for it not to happen.... See More ... See Less
