Matthews scored twice Saturday in a 6-4 loss to Vancouver.
They were his 38th and 39th goals of the season to take the NHL lead. Matthews converted a Brock Boeser giveaway in the second with a one-timer over Thatcher Demko's shoulder. He later wired a slapper from the blue line that went off Quinn Hughes and in. Matthews and Leon Draisaitl are in a duel for the Rocket Richard and both sit in the league's top five in points as well.
