GAME HIGHLIGHTS ARE PRESENTED BY BETWAY


The Oilers opened the scoring a few minutes into the game while newly-acquired Leafs defender Jake McCabe was in the penalty box. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins stripped Mitch Marner of the puck, Leon Draisaitl brought it into the zone and fired a shot on goal, and Connor McDavid buried the rebound…
The Leafs tied the game later in the first frame as Cody Ceci wasn’t able to break the puck out of Edmonton’s zone. The play was reviewed for an off-side but the goal call stood…

Edmonton continued to pour it on in the second frame. Cody Ceci threw a shot on Toronto’s goal and Kailer Yamamoto deflected it past Samsonov…

Two Leafs skated toward Warren Foegele just inside Toronto’s blueline, leaving Ryan McLeod and Klim Kostin with just a flat-footed T.J. Brodie between them and Samsonov.

The Leafs got a goal back as they started the third period with McDavid in the penalty box and capitalized on the man advantage…
Later in the third, Justin Holl threw a questionable hit on Kailer Yamamoto and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins stepped in and dropped the gloves…
