Tavares, who signed a blockbuster deal with his hometown Maple Leafs this summer, has scored five of his six goals in the past two games.

Led by Matthews and Tavares, Toronto has won three of its first four games, averaging five goals per contest. Among defencemen, Rielly trails only Harry Cameron, who had 15 points in the Toronto Arenas' first five games of the 1917-18 season. The Leafs acquired him and started this rapid ascent only because they were lucky enough to win the NHL Draft lottery. "I don't know if that's too much respect or what that was, but once we got playing I thought we did a real good job".

"When it's always going in, it's always a really good feeling", Matthews said. Mitchell Marner had a goal and three assists as the Maple Leafs improved to 2-0 on a four-game trip.

Speaking of which, Toronto has scored on 50% of their power play opportunities this season. "I think the third period we just played in their end for the most part".

First-year Stars coach Jim Montgomery is pleased with his team's performance thus far but remains ever vigilant for complacency creeping into their game. They make it hard on you. He took advantage of a bad roughing penalty against Jamie Benn to send home another goal from his new office in the left circle on the Leafs' top power play.

Frederik Andersen played career game No. 260 on Tuesday, and in that contest recorded not only his first-ever win against the Stars (in his eighth appearance), but also the 150th victory of his National Hockey League tenure. While they have had no struggles scoring goals, the Stars have also been excellent defensively with just one goal allowed through their first two wins.

The Stars tied it again at 9:04 of the second.

Toronto (2-1-0, 4 points) has gotten both wins in overtime, the latest Sunday night at United Center in a free-wheeling 7-6 defeat of the Chicago Blackhawks. Connor Brown added an empty-net goal at 16:40.

Allen, who blocked 46 shots, was one the few players Blues coach Mike Yeo would praise. Jensen has scored three of the six goals in his career against Toronto. RW Valeri Nichushkin (lower-body injury) made his season debut. In 62 games past year, he only found the back of the net five times on the man advantage. Toronto C Frederik Gauthier played in his first game this season.

Matthews is the sixth in franchise history to score at least once in each of the first four games of a season, joining Corb Denneny (1921-22) and Babe Dye (1925-26) of the Toronto St. Patricks, as well as Schriner, John Anderson (1981-82) and Clarke MacArthur (2010-11).
