Is Auston Matthews going to reach 50 goals? It is a real possibility. He comes into tonight with 16 goals in the team’s first eighteen games. He puts the team on his back tonight in a crucial game against the Canadiens. Matthews puts up two goals and four points as the Leafs continue to roll their way through the North Division. They win tonight with a score of 5-3.

If you watch the second period, it may be the most entertaining period of the season. There is a combined five goals and four of those goals came rapid-fire in between each other. These Maple Leafs are looking scary, but I am still not too convinced of them. Their division is soft and they haven’t played any real competitive teams and still haven’t made it past round one in about seventeen years.
