Maple Leafs Blank Islanders 5-0

Justin Holl and Travis Dermott both scored their first NHL goal as the Maple Leafs downed the New York Islanders 5-0.

Holl's goal came in his NHL debut after being recalled from the American Hockey League's Marlies only a few hours before puck drop.

Frederik Andersen made 28 saves for his fourth shutout of the season while Kasperi Kapanen, Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner also scored for the Maple Leafs (29-18-5).

Toronto had three rookie defencemen in the lineup, with regulars Morgan Rielly (upper body), Roman Polak (viral infection) and Ron Hainsey (illness) all scratched.

The 26-year-old Holl, with 239 minor-league games under his belt, made his NHL debut alongside first-year skaters Andreas Borgman and Dermott.

Defenceman Nikita Zaitsev was also back in Toronto's lineup after missing 17 games with a foot injury.

The Leafs play the Rangers tonight in New York.
