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 Scott Wedgewood Jersey Womens , 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.“We were going tonight,” Soderberg said. “I’m glad we could get a win.”Igor Ozhiganov, Kasperi Kapanen and Mitch Marner scored for Toronto. Frederik Andersen made 32 saves in his return to the starting lineup after missing eight games with a groin injury. Auston Matthews added two assists.Toronto, which entered play two points up on the Boston Bruins for second in the Atlantic Division, has lost five of its last seven games and four of five at home.“We just didn’t win enough races, enough puck battles Conor Sheary Jersey Womens ,” Leafs center John Tavares said. “It starts with guys like myself, we have to do a better job consistently.”The Maple Leafs talked ahead of Monday’s game about how matching a reeling opponent’s desperation level would be crucial. They didn’t come close.“We’ve only got ourselves to blame,” Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said. “This is not good enough.”Soderberg scored his second goal of the game with 8:15 left in the third period and added an empty net goal.Soderberg broke a 3-3 tie midway through the third when he snapped his 14th goal of the season past Andersen off a pass from J.T. Compher after Colin Wilson won a battle behind Toronto’s net.Toronto, which went 4-4-0 without Andersen, pulled its goalie with just under three minutes to go, but Calvert beat Matthews to a loose puck in the Colorado zone and banked a shot off the boards for his seventh of the season with 2:51 left.Soderberg completed the hat trick by scoring into an empty net at 18:12.“Everyone is getting better and we’ve hit a lull,” Babcock said. “We’ve got to get turned.”With some of the fans at Scotiabank Arena booing Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner every time he touched the puck after a soft play led directly to Soderberg’s short-handed score in the second period to make it 3-2 for the visitors, Marner tied the game six minutes into the third.The winger took a pass from Travis Dermott and ripped his 18th goal of the season and third in as many games past Varlamov’s glove.After a scoreless first Tage Thompson Jersey Womens , the middle period featured five goals, and another that was disallowed.Ozhiganov scored his third at 2:14 with a shot from the point through a screen fooled Varlamov.Leafs winger Par Lindholm appeared to score at 3:32, but the goal was called back after Colorado challenged for offside.Toronto went right back to work and scored 11 seconds after play resumed — four seconds in game time before the puck entered the net on Lindholm’s effort — when Kapanen snapped a seven-game drought with his 15th.Landeskog tipped home his 28th at 6:33 off a point shot from Tyson Barrie.Andersen did well to stop MacKinnon on a partial breakaway and Wilson’s quick backhand, but could do nothing when Rantanen stripped Nazem Kadri in the Toronto zone and scored his 21st at 9:56.Soderberg then made it 3-2 on his 13th with 5:31 left in the second when he outmuscled Gardiner for the puck late in a Toronto power play before chipping a shot past Andersen’s blocker.With their No. 1 goalie back in the crease, the Leafs played their best lineup — except for injured fourth-line winger Tyler Ennis (broken ankle) — for just the fifth time this season.After Andersen had to be sharp on a couple Colorado chances as Toronto barely touched the puck in the game’s first two minutes, the Leafs had great looks on a power play.NOTES: Andersen had originally targeted Saturday’s home game against Boston, only to be cut down by a flu bug. … Leafs backup Garret Sparks, meanwhile Dalton Prout Jersey Womens , was back on the bench following five games out with a concussion. … Michael Hutchinson, who started the last five outings for Toronto on an emergency basis with both Andersen and Sparks sidelined, was loaned to the AHL Marlies. … Colorado’s top line of Rantanen, Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon came in with 185 points on the season. Rantanen and MacKinnon ranked second and fifth in league scoring, respectively, while Landeskog was 19th.UP NEXTAvalanche: Wraps up a five-game trip through Canada in Ottawa on Wednesday.Maple Leafs: Visit Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday. BOSTON (AP) — David Pastrnak helped Boston escape a first-period onslaught with a lead, then turned the next two periods into a rout.Pastrnak had three goals and an assist as the Bruins overcame a sluggish start and beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-1 on Saturday night.“We talked before the game that we need to be better than what we’ve shown the last couple of games,” said Pastrnak Elias Lindholm Jersey Womens , who was held without a point Thursday night in the Bruins’ loss to Vancouver.Pastrnak and the rest of Boston’s top line bounced back nicely against the Maple Leafs.Patrice Bergeron had a goal and two assists and Brad Marchand had two assists for the Bruins, who led 1-0 after the first despite being outshot 20-6 in the opening 20 minutes.It was the second hat trick of the season and third career for Pastrnak, Boston’s 22-year-old Czech phenom who is developing into more than just a scoring threat.“He’s obviously a great talent. He’s got great smarts and he’s so good at getting open,” Bergeron said. “When you add being tenacious on the puck and winning battles that makes a big difference.”Pastrnak took sole possession of the NHL scoring lead with 15 goals after he entered in a four-way tie for the most.Jaroslav Halak stopped 40 shots for the Bruins, who ended Toronto’s three-game winning streak and handed the Maple Leafs their first road loss of the season.John Tavares scored the only goal for Toronto, and Garret Sparks finished with 29 saves.Pastrnak scored twice in the second period and added his third of the night with a one-timer from the left circle with 5:56 left to play.Joakim Nordstrom scored again for Boston just 26 seconds later to seal it for the Bruins, who won the first meeting of the Original Six rivals after going 1-3 against the Maple Leafs last season.“We didn’t get it done when we had all those opportunities early,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said.Halak got the start in the Bruins’ first game since the club granted a leave of absence to Tuukka Rask for undisclosed personal reasons. Halak stopped all 20 shots he faced in the first period Alan Quine Jersey Womens , keeping the Bruins in it despite a slow start.“The shot count was in their favor by a big difference but I think in the second we evened it out pretty closely and we did a good job capitalizing on some scoring chances that we had,” Boston captain Zdeno Chara said.After Pastrnak set up Bergeron for the first goal of the game, Bergeron returned the favor 5:46 into the second with a pass from behind the net for a one-timer from the left circle to give Boston a 2-0 lead.Pastrnak made it 3-0 on a power-play goal 10:24 into the second, tipping in a shot by Marchand after a cross-ice pass from Bergeron with 36 seconds left on a hooking penalty on Toronto’s Martin Marincin.Tavares scored for Toronto with 30 seconds left in the second period.“We got off to a good start,” Toronto’s Mitch Marner said. “The second period, we gave up too many opportunities. We let them take the game to us.NOTES: Halak was pulled Thursday against Vancouver after allowing five goals on 19 shots. … The Leafs allowed their most goals since a 3-1 loss to Calgary on Oct. 29. … With Rask unavailable, the Bruins called up G Dan Vladar from AHL Providence on an emergency basis. … Bergeron’s goal in the first was the 298th of his career.UP NEXTMaple Leafs: At Los Angeles on Tuesday night.Bruins: Host Vegas on Sunday night.
