"The Toronto Maple Leafs came away with a victory against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night, and while the team tied the franchise record for most points in a season, it wasn't the only notable record touched. Leafs star Auston Matthews found himself setting a new franchise record in the win as well. With two goals in the win, Matthews set the new record for most goals by a Leafs' player over his first two seasons. The 20 year old now has 73 goals over his first two seasons and surpassed Wendel Clark's mark of 71 during the 1985-86 and 1986-87 seasons. Since returning from an upper body injury, Matthews has been on a tear with five goals and five assists in seven games. Matthews two goals Monday came on the power play which is more good news consider his unit has struggled on the man advantage lately. "You score a couple of power play goals and it gives you some confidence moving forward. I think the last, maybe three, four, five games we've had some good opportunities and scored some goals just being simple and getting the puck to the net. Like I said, it always gives you some confidence." Matthews said according to the Toronto Star.All of this builds great momentum heading into their likely first round match up against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
