  • WASHINGTON DC- OCTOBER 16 John Tavares #91 of the Toronto Maple Leafs skates with the puck against the Washington Capitals during the third period at Capital One Arena

Closed games are usually decided at times, and Toronto certainly had a moment to remember when young gunmen Auston Matthews and William Nylander chose to steal the show late and put the game out of reach.

Tavares has missed the past seven games, during which the Leafs went 3-2-2, with a broken right index finger.

Auston Matthews and William Nylander scored 30 seconds apart in the third period and the Maple Leafs beat the Kings 3-1 on Tuesday night. The Kings have lost five of their past six.

In the seven games without him, the Leafs posted a 9.1 percent efficiency on the power play - 28th in the National Hockey League - and only mustered 21 goals (T-19th in the NHL) to the opposition's 24. "The only people that can do something about it is us". "Probably a little bit of rust and just getting back into the rhythm of things".

"We like that he's worked hard. he didn't ask to go down, we wanted to get him in games and he's played well", Babcock said of Petan.

Matthews snapped a 1-1 tie with 7:24 left in regulation when Andreas Johnsson sent a pass in front that went off Nylander and right to the Leafs' centre, who buried his 12th goal of the season.

"Made some really good progress", he said.

Kerfoot was in the penalty box for interference when Iafallo scored his third goal this season from the side of the net at 5:40 of the second period, switching deftly from his backhand to the forehand.

Toronto defenseman Jake Muzzin, acquired from the Kings in January for winger Carl Grundstrom, prospect Sean Durzi and a 2019 first-round pick, played his first game against his former team and took a penalty late in the second for interference.

The Leafs got even with 6:31 left in the period when Walker turned the puck over just as teammates Kyle Clifford and Trevor Lewis collided in the defensive zone. "We checked real well, did what we had to do". Kerfoot moved in alone and fired his fifth past Quick. "But every year is different and we've just been a little inconsistent".

Toronto held a 25-9 edge in shot attempts in a mostly sleepy opening 20 minutes that saw one big hit and one big chance.

The home side then got a power play later in the period when Tyler Toffoli mugged Dermott, but Tavares somehow scooped his shot up and over the Kings net from in close with Quick at his mercy.

NOTES: Toronto was just 2 for 22 on the man-advantage in seven games without Tavares.

Petan was sent to the Marlies last week and was sharp in a pair of road games, scoring two goals and recording three assists. Los Angeles is at Ottawa on Thursday before heading to Montreal two nights later.
