TORONTO (AP) — The Colorado Avalanche caught the Toronto Maple Leafs in a lull and took full advantage.
Carl Soderberg had his first career hat trick and the Avalanche defeated the Maple Leafs 6-3 on Monday night.
Gabriel Landeskog, Mikko Rantanen and Matt Calvert also scored for Colorado, which had lost nine of its last 10 games overall (1-7-2), and seven straight in regulation on the road.
Semyon Varlamov stopped 17 shots for the Avalanche.
TORONTO (AP) — On a night when Patrick Marleau celebrated his 1,600th NHL game, Mitch Marner did what he does best: set up goals.
The 21-year-old winger had three assists and Marleau added another as the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 4-2 on Monday.
"He has great vision out there," the 39-year-old Marleau said. "The way he skates and handles the puck, he can maneuver around guys and draw guys to him. He did that quite a bit tonight."
