Matthews, Marleau Lead Maple Leafs To Victory

Auston Matthews collected 1-2—3 and Patrick Marleau scored twice in his Maple Leafs debut to lead Toronto to a 7-2 victory, marking the seventh time the club has scored at least seven goals in a season opener. Marleau skated in the 1,494th game of his NHL career and first with a team other than the Sharks.
Matthews, who scored four goals in his NHL debut last season, became the fourth player in League history to start each of his first two seasons with at least three points in his team’s season-opening game.
