Leafs Down Ducks 7-4

William Nylander scored twice, including the winner, as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Anaheim Ducks 7-4 at Air Canada Centre.

Auston Matthews also had a pair of goals for the Leafs (31-20-5), with Mitch Marner, Leo Komarov and Zach Hyman, into an empty net, chipping in.

But the win might have come at a cost.

Toronto starting goaltender Frederik Andersen left the game at the 6:15 of the second period after he was struck in the head by Corey Perry's left skate.

He made 25 saves on 28 shots before being replaced by backup Curtis McElhinney, who improved to 6-4 this season with 16 saves on 17 shots.

The detail of the injury and the severity is unknown, and no update was provided by the Leafs before the end of the game.
