  • Leafs players celebrate a goal during Toronto's 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday

Morgan Rielly recorded his first three assists of the season and Mitch Marner assisted on the Leafs' first two goals.

"George is part of the very fabric of the Toronto Maple Leaf organization and will be deeply missed", Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan said in a team statement.

Pretty or not, there are still a number of things that we can takeaway from the Maple Leafs effort on Sunday and with that, here's a look at some thoughts from the Maple Leafs victory.

Toronto defenceman T.J. Brodie, who was a Flame for a decade before signing with Toronto in the off-season, faced his former club for the first time Sunday.

Both teams scored one power-play goal on four chances.

Rielly had his first three assists of the season.

Auston Matthews was back in the Maple Leafs lineup after missing one game with upper body soreness and it helped as he was able to score the eventual game-winner for his team.

And wouldn't you know it, Matthews scored in the third period. "A proud yet humble man, he loved being a Maple Leaf but never sought the spotlight even though no player played more games for Toronto or captained the team longer". He shied away from the physical play which hasn't been how he's played this season so far - getting involved physically - but he still made every effort to create on the offensive end.

"I'll obviously have to take care of it in the next couple of weeks, but it feels a lot better and feels more than good enough to play and good enough to go out there and contribute", Matthews said. "We got out of here with a big win".

The Skead, Ontario, native ranks first in franchise history with 1,188 games played and fifth in points with 713.

Wayne Simmonds' first goal (and first point) as a Leaf was his 500th National Hockey League point and his 100th power-play goal, coming late in the second period to give the Leafs a 2-1 lead. As one of the first players of Indigenous descent to play professional hockey, George first signed with the organization in 1946 and was a member of the Maple Leafs family for 75 years.
