Murray leaves the game and Larkin nets a hat trick in Leafs’ 5-2 loss: Game Highlights

Detroit took care of Toronto 5-2 on Sunday night, and the game wasn’t the only thing the Leafs lost yesterday. Matt Murray left the game in the first period after a collision with Lucas Raymond. Ilya Samsonov played well in relief but it wasn’t enough. Below are the highlights from the game.
Auston Matthews had the first prime scoring chance of the game. His wrist shot from the slot was denied by Alex Nedeljkovic:
