What Had Happened Was: 10/13/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The Toronto Maple Leafs may have lost to the Ottawa Senators, 5-4, on opening night of the NHL season, but boy did the team cash in on 2016 No. 1 overall pick Auston Matthews. The rookie became the first player in NHL history to score four goals in his debut game, and he did so in only two periods of action. He scored three of his four goals in the first 21 minutes and 25 seconds of action and was 3-for-3 in shots on goal.
If Toronto finds Matthews another scoring threat for the remainder of the season, then its possible the Maple Leafs can pull themselves out of the dredges of the NHL standings.
