Canucks rookie Elias Pettersson sidelined with knee injury

Elias pettersson goal canucks

While Toronto has exceptional firepower with Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and John Tavares, not to mention defenceman Morgan Rielly's breakout offensive season, the goaltending remains the biggest immediate concern despite Hutchinson's 28-save shutout in a 5-0 victory over the listless Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. (Down 2-0), they didn't get wound up, they just kept working and forechecking and basically they won it in the first period.

"There's no magic formula of getting scoring in the NHL", Green said.

Shots were 33-27 for the visitors.

"But again, they're a great hockey team".

Vancouver went 3-3-0 in the six games without an injured Pettersson earlier this season, but scored just 11 goals over that span, including nine in regulation. Ozhiganov put the Maple Leafs up 5-0 at 14:49 when his shot from the bottom of the right face-off circle went off Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson in front of the net. (Pettersson) gets hooked a little bit. However, you can't honestly think that Kotkaniemi hooked Pettersson with the intention of throwing a leg lock around his legs (putting himself at risk of injury too) with the intention of bringing him to the ice.

"As soon as I shot it, I knew it as going in", Benn said.

Matthews put Toronto up 3-0 at 4:45 of the third period on a wraparound.

Andreas Johnsson roofed a puck to make it 4-0.

Toronto for the sixth time this season avoided what would have been a season-high three-game losing streak.

It looks like there's no end in sight to the battle over the border, and now President Trump has another challenge on his hands. The House is poised to pass legislation that would re-open the government, but without Trump's $5.6 billion request for a wall.

"He looks good. He's walking around pretty well".

"We're looking forward to the second half and we've just got to keep getting better", Babcock said following Sunday's practice. This is a good opportunity, he gets to play with some really good players. I thought we hung in there for two periods but couldn't contain them in the third.

From there, the Leafs made sure Hutchinson got his shutout.

In his second consecutive start for the team he cheered for growing up in nearby Barrie, Ontario, Hutchinson got his fourth career shutout and the first since October 28, 2016, when he was with Winnipeg.

Montreal coach says his all-star goaltender's strong play is giving his team extra confidence in front of him.

Sensational Vancouver rookie Elias Pettersson left the game after a freak knee injury in a tie-up with Kotkaniemi.

Zach Hyman, meanwhile, also took part in his first full practice Sunday after suffering an ankle sprain in New Jersey on December 18.

Vancouver coach Travis Green said he was prepared to be upset with Kotkaniemi, but after reviewing a tape of the incident, he didn't see any signs of foul play. Marleau played the 1,616th game of his career to pass Larry Murphy and move into sole possession for ninth all-time in National Hockey League history. Scott Stevens is eighth with 1,635.

Minutes after Pettersson's injury, Drouin scored his team's second of the night as he burst up the wing for his 13th of the season, matching his total from all of last season.
