Leafs' Tavares sidelined with broken finger

Leafs' Tavares sidelined with broken finger”

John Tavares, Toronto's leading goal scorer last season, suffered a broken finger in the Leafs' 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals on Wednesday and will be out of the lineup for at least two weeks, the club announced Thursday. "We played a lot better tonight".

"I'm just getting lucky", says Carlson.

Carlson scored off an Alex Ovechkin assist about a minute later.

The Maple Leafs got one back with a goal from John Tavares late in the third period but the Caps and starting netminder Ilya Samsonov held off a late rally. It's always nice to get a win here, especially at home.

The centre scored a career-high 47 goals and posted 88 points while appearing in all 82 games last season, his first with the Maple Leafs after joining the team on a seven-year, $77 million contract. In the past five campaigns, Tavares has missed just nine games. We stayed with our game.

"He's playing really well, and that's something that we talked about this summer with the departure of some other guys", coach Todd Reirden said. "I thought it was a really good game for a young goaltender because things probably didn't go exactly how he wanted in the first, and he made an adjustment". "He completely settled down and let pucks begin to start to hit him". "But if you're not standing next to your guy, that's on you". It starts on Saturday against a Boston Bruins team that has been on their game to start the season and it won't be an easy matchup.

Toronto made it 4-2 late in the second, and then Jonsson-Fjallby closed out the scoring with his second of the night at 4:52 of the third, Brian Pinho supplying the solo assist. Just 11 seconds following the restart, Backstrom's one-timer off T.J. Oshie's feed beat Hutchinson to give Washington the lead.
