TORONTO (AP) — There have been times this season when the Maple Leafs felt they deserved a better fate on home ice.That wasn’t the case Tuesday night.Frederik Andersen made 36 saves to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1.The visitors had 82 shot attempts compared to the Leafs’ 40 Nikita Zaitsev Jersey Kids
, including a 40-13 edge in a second period where Toronto barely touched the puck.“We didn’t get on the forecheck,” Leafs forward Mitch Marner said. “Freddie Andersen has been unbelievable for us every single game. … He’s the reason we stole one tonight.”Connor Brown, Marner and Nazem Kadri scored for Toronto (10-5-0), which came in just 3-5-0 at Scotiabank Arena compared to a perfect 6-0-0 on the road.“We got fooling around with the puck and they showed us how fast they were,” said Toronto coach Mike Babcock, whose team registered a season-low 21 shots. “We were lucky to get out of the second.”Cody Eakin scored for Vegas (6-8-1), which got 18 stops from Marc-Andre Fleury.“A lot was real good,” Knights head coach Gerard Gallant said. “I liked the way we came in here and played against a real good Toronto team.”Despite the lopsided shot clock, Andersen credited his teammates with getting him clear looks at the majority of the attempts on goal.“We’re keeping a little bit more to the outside http://www.mapleleafsshoponline.com/authentic-patrick-marleau-jersey
,” Andersen said. “That makes my job easier.”The Knights were by far the better team through two periods and had a couple of opportunities to tie it early in the third down 2-1 only to have Andersen shut the door.Patrick Marleau nearly made it 3-1 for Toronto moments later off a pass from Kasperi Kapanen on a 2-on-1 rush, but the veteran flubbed his shot wide.The Knights got forward Max Pacioretty back from an upper-body injury but are still without center Paul Stastny. They lost another forward when Erik Haula went down with an apparent right leg injury five minutes into the third.Haula, who collided with Marleau along the boards, stayed down for a few minutes as he was attended to by trainers from both teams before being stretchered off.The Knights’ power play, which came in ranked 28th, got a chance with under nine minutes left in regulation when Jake Gardiner went off for slashing, but it was unable to score.Fleury made nice stops on Marner and John Tavares before Andersen stopped Rielly Smith’s effort from the goal line with his arm and body with 2:33 left.Vegas kept its foot on the gas with Fleury on the bench for an extra attacker, but couldn’t get much in the way of pressure before Kadri scored his fourth into an empty net with 34.1 seconds left.“It’s very frustrating,” Vegas defenseman Shea Theodore said. “We’re starting to play more of our style and we’re starting to play a better game Noah Hanifin Jersey Womens
, but we’re not burying those chances.”NOTES: Brown’s only other goal this season was into an empty net. … Stastny (lower-body injury) is expected to be out another month.

DETROIT (AP) — Dylan Larkin helped the Detroit Red Wings avoid their second seven-game winless streak of the season.Larkin scored with 24.9 seconds left in overtime as Detroit rallied from a two goal-deficit to defeat the Nashville Predators 4-3 Friday night and snap a six-game winless (0-4-2) skid.The Red Wings went 0-5-2 to begin the season.“For us to play that way, especially going down 1-0 (actually 2-0, early in the second period), it speaks a lot to the guys in our room and the preparation we had going into tonight,” Larkin said.Larkin, who has points in 15 of his last 16 games (8-11-19) beat Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne with a backhander from the slot as he cut in from the left point. It was Larkin’s 18th goal.“I just saw daylight and felt like a running back and went to the net,” Larkin said.“And I saw a defenseman going down on one knee and I shot it before I got to him and I think it caught Rinne off-guard.”It was his fourth OT winner of the season.Andreas Athanasiou, Thomas Vanek and Tyler Bertuzzi also scored for Detroit.Defenseman Filip Hronek had two assists and Jimmy Howard stopped 27 shots.Defenseman P.K. Subban, Craig Smith and Ryan Johansen scored for Nashville. Rinne made 35 saves.“We were awful from start to finish. We lost every 50-50 puck battle William Nylander Jersey
, and Pekka was the only reason we got a point,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said.“We had three or four guys who came willing to work and 15 that didn’t, and that’s never going to work in this league.”Johansen tied it 3-3 with 1:16 left in regulation and Rinne pulled for the extra attacker. Johansen’s eighth goal of the season came on a shot from the left circle.Bertuzzi gave the Red Wings a 3-2 lead with 8:03 left in the third period. He tapped in a backhand goal-mouth pass from Gustav Nyquist after a turnover by Subban deep in his own zone. It was Bertuzzi’s 10th goal.Vanek, playing in his 1,000th career game, tied it at 2, with 6:25 left in the second period. It was Vanek’s seventh goal.Athanasiou put the Red Wings on the board 4:24 into the second with his 15th goal.Smith gave the Predators a 2-0 lead 3:01 into the middle period with his 12th goal.It appeared that defenseman Anthony Bitetto had given Nashville a 3-2 lead with 5:15 left in the second period. But Detroit challenged goaltender interference and the goal was overturned.Subban gave Nashville a 1-0 lead with 2:24 left in the first period with his third goal.The Predators did not get their first shot of the game until less than seven minutes remained in the opening period. The Red Wings had 10 shots at that point.NOTES: Detroit RW Anthony Mantha returned after missing 15 games with a broken hand. … Vanek was saluted during a stoppage of play in the first period. … LW Phillip Di Giuseppe made his Nashville debut after being claimed on waivers from Carolina on Tuesday.UP NEXTNashville: Visits Montreal on Saturday.Detroit: Hosts Washington on Sunday.
