WASHINGTON (AP) — Auston Matthews‘ scoring has helped carry the Toronto Maple Leafs early this season.The Leafs’ defense and depth were the difference Saturday against Washington.Fourth-liner Josh Leivo scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period http://www.edmontonoilersteamshops.com/authentic-oscar-klefbom-jersey , Frederick Andersen made 25 saves and the Maple Leafs beat the Capitals 4-2.Moments after Andersen made several solid saves to preserve the lead, Matthews scored an insurance goal with 1:39 to play, his NHL-leading 10th of the season.Kasperi Kapanen had a goal and an assist and third-line winger Par Lindholm also scored for Toronto, which has won four straight to complete a perfect four-game road trip. Jake Gardiner had two assists.“Obviously, it’s great that our big guys got off to a real good start because I think having them feeling good is so important,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. “I’ve been saying that part of the reason we’re going to have success is because we have real good depth.”Matthews, who added an assist, has scored a goal in all six games this season and has multiple points in each. He also has four assists and joined Sweeny Schriner (1944-45) as the only Maple Leafs to score a goal and have multiple points in the first six games of the season.Toronto tied the game late in the second and controlled play for much of the final 20 minutes.“I think Freddie kept us in the game with some big saves,” Matthews said. “I think the third period we just played in their end for the most part. Had them hemmed in and made some plays.”Evgeny Kuznetsov scored his fourth goal of the season for Washington and added an assist. Chandler Stephenson also scored and Alex Ovechkin had two assists.Washington unleashed a sustained flurry late in the third period but couldn’t get the equalizer.We had a lot of quality opportunities,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. “You know 3-4 minutes to go there we make a real good push and (Andersen) makes a number of saves and the puck stays out of the net. They were pushing at the end there and they end up being able to convert on a bit of a bounce that went their way.”Braden Holtby made 24 saves for Washington.It took Washington just 18 seconds to take a 1-0 lead. Kuznetsov carried in 2-on-1 with Stephenson and Andersen made the initial save on Kuznetsov, but Stephenson poked home the rebound for his first goal of the season.Toronto had several chances to tie in the first. Holtby made big saves on Zach Hyman and Kapanen, both alone in front, and the Maple Leafs hit the post twice.The Maple Leafs tied it at 3:30 of the second period when Kapanen deflected Ron Hainsey’s shot from the left point through a crowd and past Holtby.Just 69 seconds later, Kuznetsov fired a tough-angle shot over Andersen’s shoulder from the bottom of the right circle for a power-play goal.Lindholm tied it when he redirected Gardiner’s pass by Holtby with 67 seconds left in the period for his first career goal.“I really liked our first two periods,” Reirden said, “keeping a dangerous hockey team to some limited chances.”NOTES: This was the first of three straight home games for Washington. … Holtby fell to 57-19-9 on Saturday nights. . D Justin Holl, D Martin Marincin and C Tyler Ennis were the Toronto scratches. Washington sat C Jayson Megna, D Madison Bowey and LW Nathan Walker.UP NEXTToronto: Returns home and plays the Los Angeles Kings on Monday.Washington: Hosts the New York Rangers on Tuesday. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Coyotes were one of the NHL’s best teams the final two months of the 2017-18 season, playing the kind of hockey coach Rick Tocchet envisioned his first season in the desert.If only they had started rolling a few months earlier.Plagued by the worst start in franchise history, the Coyotes finished last in the Western Conference and missed the playoffs for the sixth straight season, yet they have a glimmer of hope for the future thanks to their flourish to the finish.”There’s a lot of good positive things and we just have to keep pushing the pedal. We can’t stand pat,” Tocchet said. ”We can’t pat ourselves on the back, `Hey, we had a great second half.’ We’re still one of the bottom teams, which is reality, but saying that I thought we made a lot of strides.”The Coyotes made dramatic changes in hopes of ending their postseason-less run. Arizona parted ways with coach Dave Tippett and replaced him with Tocchet. Longtime captain Shane Doan’s contract was not renewed Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Jersey , No. 1 goalie Mike Smith was traded to Calgary and the Coyotes brought in a new group of players they hoped would lead the franchise out of its rut.Antti Raanta became the new top goalie, defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson was added to shore up the defense and Derek Stepan was expected to be the top-line center the team had sought for years.Little went according to plan. Raanta missed the first seven games with a lower-body injury and the Coyotes had trouble holding on to leads – when they could get them – and opened the season 1-12-1. Arizona could not escape the deep early hole, laboring at the bottom of the NHL standings throughout the first half of the season.The Coyotes started to click after the All-Star break. Raanta was healthy and stopping shots. The defense, a detriment early, tightened up. The offense, led by a core of young scorers, started to flow instead of sputter.Arizona went 17-9-3 over its final 29 games, finishing 29-41-12 with 70 points. The Coyotes were still last in the Pacific Division, but managed to finish ahead of Ottawa and Buffalo among the league’s bottom dwellers.”I’ve got all the confidence in this group,” said Stepan, who had 14 goals and was second on the team with 56 points. ”They’ve learned a lot this season and you’ve got to be able to carry that over into next season and continue to learn, and the older guys got to learn from the younger guys. It’s got to be a balanced group.”RAANTA’S RIDE: Raanta had a rough ride his first season as a No. 1 goalie, battling through separate injuries. Once he was healthy, the Finnish goalie played like the Coyotes had hoped he would after trading for him from the New York Rangers.Raanta finished the season 21-17-6 with a 2.24 goals-against average and a save percentage of .930. He was scheduled to become a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Coyotes locked him up for the next three years with a $12.75 million contract just before the season ended.”He stops the puck,” Coyotes GM John Chayka said. ”He just seems to, when he’s on, he’s locked in and he’s reading everything and making the game look easy. You put up his numbers both this season and over his career, he’s a high, high-end goaltender in terms of stopping the puck.”KELLER’S RISE: Clayton Keller got his rookie season off to a sizzling start, went through a dry scoring spell and finished strong to put himself in the Calder Trophy conversation.The No. 7 overall pick in the 2016 draft was the NHL’s leading rookie scorer during the season’s first month with nine goals and 15 assists before going 17 games without a goal into December. Keller closed strong with six goals and 15 assists in March and April, finishing with 23 goals and 65 points to lead the Coyotes in both categories.SIGNING OEL: One of the Coyotes’ top offseason priorities will be trying to sign All-Star defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson as he heads into the last year of his contract.Once thought to be a trade target during Arizona’s rebuilding process, the Finnish defenseman remained a core player for the Coyotes, finishing fourth on the team with 42 points. He wants to stay in the desert and the Coyotes want him, so it’s a matter of coming to terms.—
