  • Leafs Report Cards Martin Marincin turns into Bobby Orr at just the right time

The injured goaltender's huge importance to the Vancouver Canucks has become even clearer with Thatcher Demko's inability so far to adequately fill in for him.

Martin Marincin scored his first goal of the season 18 seconds into the third period to break a tie and help the Toronto Maple Leafs defeat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 at Scotiabank Arena on Saturday.

Canucks: Jacob Markstrom: out (lower body).

Florida lost to the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout earlier Saturday.

Marincin skated into the zone and shot from the high slot and hit the post. The Canucks are 5-5-2 in their 12 games so far in February. Get over 500 NHL games, blackout-free, including Hockey Night in Canada, all outdoor games, the All-Star Game, 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs and more. His 44 goals are second only to David Pastrnak's 46 this season while his 11 power play goals give him a share of fifth in the league in that category. As a team, the Canucks have surrendered 20 goals in their last five games. The difference this game was so did their opponent.

After Pearson, the next happiest Canuck was probably Demko, who is struggling to meet Markstrom's elite standard.

Matthews notched his team-leading 45th goal of the season from the left circle at 6:25 of the first after a pass from Dermott sent him on a rush down the wing. Linemate Jay Beagle won a puck battle behind the net and put a pass out front to Brandon Sutter, who slid the puck over to Motte at the side of an open net for an easy tap in.

It looked like a dispiriting goal, but Canucks defenceman Troy Stecher pumped up his goalie on the next TV timeout and Pearson's marker pumped up the team soon after.

Playing in one of their most important games of the season, the Toronto Maple Leafs needed their stars to shine on Thursday, and their biggest star did exactly that.

Thatcher Demko made 26 saves for the Canucks.

The Leafs top two lines (Zach Hyman-Auston Matthews-Mitch Marner, Alex Kerfoot-John Tavares-William Nylander) remained intact, with a third line of Kyle Clifford, Jason Spezza and Kasperi Kapanen, and Denis Malgin skating on a fourth line unit with Frederik Gauthier and Pierre Engvall.
