Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Gets better end in battle of No. 1 picks
Matthews opened the scoring with his 10th goal in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over Edmonton, adding two PIM and a plus-1 rating.
In the battle of No. 1 picks between Matthews and Connor McDavid, it was last season's top selection who posted a multi-point night. However, Matthews' early goal got the Leafs off to a strong start and continued his burgeoning hot streak -- he's scored in three straight games, totaling four goals and a helper in that time. He may not be quite as good as McDavid, but Matthews is still growing into one of the stars of the league already.
