Leafs, Stars set for lone Dallas meeting of season

Chicago's Cam Ward made 35 saves in his fifth straight start as the Blackhawks await the return of Corey Crawford, out since last December with a concussion. Matthews is the 12th player in National Hockey League history to record multiple points in each of his team's first five games. He's really worked hard on his body.

While others marvel at how quickly the Maple Leafs have engineered their rebuild from a 69-point team in 2015-16 to a legitimate Stanley Cup contender this season, ask yourself this question: Where would the Leafs be without Matthews? He's worked hard on his skating and all parts of his game.

Morgan Rielly had a goal and an assist, giving him 11 points to equal Bobby Orr's strong start during the 1973-74 season.

Nick Jensen gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead midway through the first period and scored a second goal midway through the third to pull them within a goal. 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).

Soon after Jensen's second goal, Matthews took advantage of a power play by scoring his second goal of the game. 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. "There has been a lot of turnover in terms of personnel, lots of new players, management, coaching staff since I have been here, and it has been interesting to watch, seeing both ends of the spectrum". On John Klingberg's goal, Dallas' fourth, Andersen looked to have his stick tied up by Benn in front of the net, but the Leafs' challenge on the play was unsuccessful and briefly made it a one-goal game in the third before Toronto took over.

"What I like about the power play is we're not trying to make any highlight-reel plays", Tavares said.

Craig Revel Horwood: Strictly Come Dancing judges do not fix scores
But others felt it was right that the decision was based on the dancing rather than Walsh and Jones's personal lives. Many fans had been calling on the comedian to quit the show and he said that focusing on the dancing had been tough.

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

The Maple Leafs would like these guys to lead but they need more help from the supporting cast.

You've seen them play on the ice, now is your chance to them play in the virtual world. It doesn't really matter who does the scoring as long as you find a way to win.

In three games over which the Blackhawks went 2-0-1, Toews scored five goals and added an assist.

"We had a lot of quality opportunities", Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. 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. It's certainly just celebrating its history and was in no way reacting to that wild 7-6 Maple Leafs win over the 'Hawks in Chicago over the weekend. Kelly played in Detroit from 1947-60 and for the Maple Leafs from 1960-67.

Tavares and Matthews have scored 13 goals between them to start the season, while the rest of the Leafs combined have scored seven.
