and the Washington Capitals will try to cool off Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night at Capital One Arena.Mathews has nine goals and three assists in five games and the Maple Leafs are off to a 4-1 start.In a 5-3 win at Detroit Thursday night [url=http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-david-krejci-jersey]http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-david-krejci-jersey[/url] , Matthews scored twice on the power play for the Maple Leafs, who were 2-for-4 with the man-advantage. They’re 7-for-14 with the extra man so far this season.Article continues below ...“We have a lot of guys who can finish on this team, especially when we are on the power play,” Toronto center John Tavares told NHL.com. “When I get the puck, I’m just trying to get it to an open player. If that’s (Matthews), it is an automatic goal right now.”Tavares had a career-high four assists against Detroit — giving him 10 points — and Mitchell Marner and Morgan Rielly each had a goal and an assist. Frederik Andersen made 26 saves.Matthews has scored in five straight games and is one game shy of tying Sweeney Schriner’s 74-year-old team record for most consecutive games at the start of a season with at least one goal. He’s recorded multiple points in all five games.Defenseman Rielly has 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in his first five games, the best five-game start by an NHL defenseman in modern history. The previous high was 11 points by Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins in 1973-74.“I think it’s great for all the guys that are doing some scoring right now,” Leafs coach Mike Babcock told the Toronto Sun. “In the end, though, it’s about winning every night and it doesn’t really matter on our team who does the scoring as long as we score enough to find a way to win. I think the guys have been real good about that.”The last player to record nine goals in the first five games of the season will also be on the ice Saturday night as Washington winger Alex Ovechkin accomplished the feat last season.Ovechkin and company didn’t manage any goals when they suffered their first regulation defeat of the season — 6-0 to the New Jersey Devils Thursday night.Playing the second of back-to-backs, the Stanley Cup champs fell behind early and the Devils poured it on late.“I think it’s going to be like that all season [url=http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-david-pastrnak-jersey]Authentic David Pastrnak Jersey[/url] ,” Washington’s Lars Eller told NBCSportsWashington.com of the Devils’ all-out effort. “Teams are going to want to beat the champs and show their best. They got a lot of energy going tonight and we didn’t have as much of it.”The Capitals (2-1-1) entered the game having scored a franchise-best 18 goals, the most in their history through the first three games of the season.Back-up goalie Pheonix Copley made 30 saves for the Capitals against New Jersey.“First period especially, he was really good,” Caps defenseman Matt Niskanen told NBCSportsWashington.com. “He didn’t get a very good effort in front of him. He played hard and made some big saves in the first when it was still close. The rest of us got to do better.”Washington opens a three-game homestand against the Maple Leafs, who are finishing a four-game road swing.Holtby is 8-3-1 with a 2.05 goals against average and .934 save percentage versus the Maple Leafs, while Andersen is 3-1-1 with a 2.88 GAA and .909 save percentage against Washington. ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Burdened with a franchise-record losing streak, the Anaheim Ducks got a spark after a roster makeover. The Minnesota Wild were left reeling after the trade of a popular teammate.John Gibson made 37 saves for his second shutout of the season, Adam Henrique and Rickard Rakell scored 11 seconds apart in the first period and the re-tooled Ducks snapped a franchise-record 12-game losing streak by beating the Wild 3-0 on Thursday night.Brian Gibbons added his second goal of the season for Anaheim, which made four trades in the previous three days.“I think you lose 12 in a row, you need to change something,” Gibson said. “I’m not saying anything about the guys that moved or anything like that [url=http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-jake-debrusk-jersey]Jake DeBrusk Jersey[/url] , but I think you get new players, you get some new faces, you get some new energy in here and it helped us and we fed off that. We needed a change, and tonight it worked out and we have to keep going with it.”The Ducks added forwards Devin Shore and Derek Grant, and defenseman Michael Del Zotto in a series of deals, along with receiving minor league forward Justin Kloos in an exchange with Minnesota.“Hopefully, we hit a few buttons that can give ourselves some life here and some momentum that we can carry this forward,” Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said of the win.Alex Stalock allowed three goals on eight shots for the Wild before being pulled in favor of Devan Dubnyk, who stopped 15 shots after he was expected to get another night of rest.Minnesota has also been busy making deals. Earlier Thursday, Minnesota traded forward Nino Niederreiter to the Carolina Hurricanes for center Victor Rask. Pontus Aberg played his first game for the Wild after being acquired from Anaheim for Kloos.“Yeah, a guy was traded mid-afternoon and they find out at 4 o’clock or what have you,” Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau said. “But our job is our job. I mean [url=http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-patrice-bergeron-jersey]Womens Patrice Bergeron Jersey[/url] , we’re professionals. Trades happen. They had six transactions and I didn’t see them worrying about it.”The Ducks started quickly in this one as Henrique scored his eighth goal of the season just 3:57 into the game. Just 11 seconds later, Shore drove the net and had the puck poked away by Stalock. But the loose puck when right to Rakell in front and he had an open net for his ninth goal of the season.Shore was playing his second game with Anaheim since being acquired from Dallas.Gibbons scored less than four minutes later, tipping a shot from the point from defenseman Andy Welinkski and ending Stalock’s night.“Sometimes that’s all it takes,” Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said. “You get young guys in the lineup and they play with energy and they did their job great tonight.”Dubnyk, the Wild’s All-Star representative, had started 16 of 17 games before Stalock led Minnesota to a win against Los Angeles on Tuesday with 31 saves. Boudreau said Dubnyk was feeling tired and tried to give his top netminder another night off Thursday.“We’ve got to start winning or it’s more stuff like that is going to happen,” Minnesota forward Zach Parise said of the trades. “You never want to be in that position where you’re putting yourself in a spot where they have to make that decision and all of a sudden you have to start getting rid of players. It’s a tough spot to be in and I just hope that we can rebound and climb ourselves back in.”NOTES: Del Zotto and Kloos were scratched for Anaheim. Del Zotto, acquired from Vancouver, isn’t expected to join the team until the current road trip ends on Sunday. … Anaheim F Max Jones made his NHL debut after being recalled a day earlier when Jakob Silfverberg and Ryan Kesler were placed on injured reserve with lower-body injuries. … Both teams were 0 for 4 on the power play and Minnesota has now killed off two of the past 21 opponent power plays. … Thursday represented the first time Stalock has started two straight games since a career-best seven in a row from Dec. 14-27, 2017. … Parise had a career-high 11 shots on goal.UP NEXTDucks: Play at New Jersey on Saturday.Wild: Host Columbus on Saturday.
