NASHVILLE Jacob Markstrom Jersey , Tenn. (AP) Auston Matthews didn’t look rusty in his return from a monthlong layoff.Matthews had a goal in his first game back from a shoulder injury that sidelined him for 10 games and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Nashville Predators 5-2 on Thursday night.”I felt fine out there,” Matthews said. ”I got engaged early, got the puck, able to make a couple of plays and that kind of builds your confidence for the rest of the game.”The Predators had been 14-0-1 since their previous regulation loss on Feb. 17.”One team was fast, the other team wasn’t fast,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. ”To me, that’s where you get lopsided. The ice seems to tilt one way and we’ve done that, too. We were off the mark with regard to that tonight and we’ll look to fix it and be better.”James van Riemsdyk and Mitchell Marner each had a goal and an assist, and William Nylander and Jake Gardiner also scored for Toronto, which has won five of six.Morgan Rielly had three assists for the Maple Leafs, and Tyler Bozak had two. Frederik Andersen stopped 23 shots.Viktor Arvidsson and Scott Hartnell scored for Nashville. Pekka Rinne had 23 saves.Van Riemsdyk scored on a power play 4:03 into the first period off a pass from Marner. Van Riemsdyk tried to pass between his skates Markus Granlund Jersey , but the puck deflected off defenseman Roman Josi’s stick and past Rinne. It was van Riemsdyk’s team-leading 11th power-play goal.Arvidsson tied it with a power-play goal 5:42 into the second before Matthews and Nylander scored 1:38 apart late in the period to make it 3-1.”The first night, you always have energy, it’s now what’s going to come?” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said of Matthews. ”The good thing about it is he has been able to skate. His linemates were really good tonight and that helped him as well.”Marner’s power-play goal at nine seconds of the third made it 4-1. Toronto has scored at least one goal with the man advantage in seven straight games.”Obviously, starting on the power play, it’s an advantage so we wanted to make sure right away we tried to make the most of it,” Marner said. ”Lucky enough, we did.”Gardiner’s slap shot from the left side gave Toronto a 5-1 lead at 3:39 of the third.One Predator thought they were due for a letdown.”I think we deserved every second of that,” defenseman Ryan Ellis said. ”Good team came in here and played a lot better than us. I think you look at this stretch we’ve had of (15) games with points, we’ve been squeaking out wins. We’ve been finding ways to win. But that’s not playoff hockey.”Hartnell scored his 13th of the season at 15:37.NOTES: U.S. Olympic women’s hockey gold medalists Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson attended the game. … Nashville C Kyle Turris played his 600th NHL game. … Van Riemsdyk has eight goals in his last five games. … Toronto is 19-8-2 against the Western Conference this season. … Marner extended his point streak to seven games.UP NEXTMaple Leafs: Host Detroit Saturday.Predators: At Minnesota Saturday.— LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jonathan Marchessault had never attempted a penalty shot in his NHL career.He made his first one count Sunday night.Marchessault earned a penalty shot after being hooked by Mark Stone on what would have been a breakaway, and beat goalie Craig Anderson to lift the Vegas Golden Knights to a 4-3 overtime victory over the Ottawa Senators.“I had one in the AHL, I think I did like almost the same move Michael Del Zotto Jersey , I just went high glove,” said Marchessault, who leads Vegas with 11 points this season. “I kind of knew a little bit what I was going to do, I just waiting … I was able to put it where I wanted it.”The Golden Knights rallied from trailing 2-0 early and avoided their second three-game losing streak, after consecutive losses at home.Alex Tuch scored two goals and Ryan Reaves added his third of the season for Vegas, while Marc-Andre Fleury made 19 saves.Matt Duchene, Bobby Ryan and Ryan Dzingel scored for the Senators, while Anderson made 49 saves.The Golden Knights outshot Ottawa, 53-22. In their first 10 games, the Golden Knights had 37 or more shots on goal just four times. They had 37 shots through two periods.“Things weren’t going well for us the first half of the game,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “We were working hard Sam Gagner Jersey , everything was going well except the puck wasn’t going in the net and we found ourselves down 2-0. … If we would have lost tonight, I would have been upset with not getting the two points, but the way we played was outstanding.”The victory, however, didn’t come without the Golden Knights losing another player to injury for the second consecutive game. After losing forward Max Pacioretty, who left Friday’s game after being drilled by Tampa Bay’s Braydon Coburn, forward Cody Eakin left Sunday’s game after being hit in the head by Mark Borowiecki in the first period.“It was a big hit, I don’t think Borowiecki wanted to go over there and exactly hit Cody Eakin in the head,” Gallant said. “But the puck came to Cody right there and he was coming in with a lot of speed …. but I don’t think there was any intent to try and hurt the guy.”Duchene gave the Senators an early 1-0 lead in the first period, and Ryan extended Ottawa’s lead midway through the second period, when he punched home the Senators’ first road power-play goal of the season.“Our players are giving everything they’ve got Womens Devante Smith-Pelly Jersey , we talked about having 60 minutes of keeping it together and that’s exactly what our players did,” Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said “That’s the difference with the previous two games (against) Boston and Colorado, where we played really good for two periods and then just because the other team scored, whether it’s the end of the second or beginning of the third, all of a sudden we start to get out of whack, impatient, lose our structure … we didn’t do that tonight. The composure was there the entire game. That’s a big building block for us.”Tuch, who missed the first eight games of the season with a lower-body injury, notched his first goal of the season when he went forehand-backhand to deke Anderson and cut Ottawa’s lead in half. Reaves scored his first career power-play goal when he tied the game with 1:39 left in the second period.Playing a nifty passing game of tic-tac-toe, Dzingel was the beneficiary as he scored his team-leading fourth road goal of the season to put Ottawa back on top. The lead didn’t last long, though http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-sven-baertschi-jersey , as Tuch scored his second goal 28 seconds later.“It’s a big win, especially since we’re going on the road for two really hard games against two really good opponents,” Tuch said. “I thought we played really well today, we had a lot of shots, we had a lot of guys in front of the net, Craig Anderson played an unbelievable game, but we just kept battling.”NOTES: Vegas went 1 for 5 with an extra man, and is 4 for 37 on power-play opportunities this season. ….
