Brooks’ milestone helps patchwork Maple Leafs pick up win over Oilers

Brooks’ milestone helps patchwork Maple Leafs pick up win over Oilers”

The Leafs moved Robertson to long-term injury reserve (they'd said he'd be out at least a month), which freed $821,667 USA in cap space and allows Toronto to get back to having 21 players on the main roster and possibly utilize more salaries off their taxi squad.

The veteran forward has tallied a goal and an assist through five games this season.

Down 2-1 through two periods, the Oilers got even 50 seconds into the third when McDavid, who grew up just north of Toronto in Newmarket, Ont., scored his second-ever goal at Scotiabank Arena when he deftly tipped Ethan Bear's point shot past Andersen for his fourth of the campaign.

The Oilers made two lineup changes after Game 1, putting James Neal in on the fourth line for Alex Chiasson and Tyler Ennis on the third for Joakim Nygard, who went to the taxi squad. "He has to get his timing back but we had to play him sometime", said Tippett.

That came after Kerfoot, Vesey's former teammate and linemate at Harvard, stole the puck from Adam Larsson beneath the goal-line and fed it to Nylander, who fooled Oilers goalie Mikko Koskinen by sliding it over.

After being injured during Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers, Thornton has been placed on long-term injured reserve, a move that helps the team's salary-cap situation. "I think you need everybody". "We got a good bounce-back". "It's obviously a great task and it's been great to see the team respond and really take that role seriously and not give them anything for free".

The Maple Leafs will head west for a pair of road games against both the Calgary Flames and Oilers.

Goaltender Frederik Andersen made 30 saves for Toronto.

Friday's opening 20 minutes weren't almost as tight-checking as Wednesday's chess match, with a couple of chances at either end.

The former Regina Pats star scored his first National Hockey League goal to help the Toronto Maple Leafs double the visiting Edmonton Oilers 4-2.

McDavid had another rebound effort denied by Andersen before Simmonds saw his redirection smothered at the other by Koskinen as the teams headed to the locker rooms without finding the range.
