I didn't see this on the horizon.
The Toronto Maple Leafs hammered the Winnipeg Jets last night 7-2.
The Leafs burst out of the gates fast last night.
Nazem Kadri got the ball rolling at 15:45 of the first period.
James Van Riemsdyk made it 2-0 almost two minutes later.
The Leafs weren't done.
At 18:23 of the first period, William Nylander scored.
At 8:32 of the second period, Patrick Marleau scored his first goal as a Leaf.
36 seconds into the third period, Marleau scored his second of the game to make it 5-0.
Down 6-0, Mark Scheifele put the jets on the scoreboard at 11:31 of the third period.
26 seconds later, though, Auston Matthews scored his first goal of the year to make it 7-1.
The Jets scored another goal at 12:57 of the third (period) but it wasn't enough.
Both Matthews and Van Riemsdyk had three points in last night's game.
Leaf's goalie, Frederik Andersen was solid in net. He stopped 35 shots last night.
