Maple Leafs bring the heat with a 4-3 win over the Calgary Flames

From a near perfectly played first period, to a couple of unanswered goals, the Toronto Maple Leafs come back to hand the Calgary Flames their second regulation loss of the season with a 4-3 win. Wayne Simmonds wasn’t holding back and opened up the scoring less than four minutes in the first period as he capitalized on Justin Holl’s rebound with a shot that made it past Jacob Markstrom.

The Leafs were dominating the game and held the Flames over 11 minutes without a registered shot on goal. The Calgary Flames had a chance to tie it up on a Power Play as Pierre Engvall was called for Tripping, but they were unable to convert. The Leafs then had their chance to double their lead on a Power Play as Elias Lindholm was called for Hooking, and they did just that. Auston Matthews delivered and made it a 2-0 game with a beautiful pass from Mitch Marner.
