A recap of last night's Montreal/Toronto game.
Last season, Toronto Maple Leafs forward, William Nylander struggled offensively.

Nylander had a hard time scoring.

In fact, his lack of scoring led Leafs fans to pressure club management to trade him.

Last night, however, Nylander played the way fans expected him to play.

Nylander scored two goals in a 5-4 overtime win over the visiting Montreal Canadiens in a really entertaining game.

Down 1-0, Nylander tied the game at 15:56 of the first period.

At 19:56 of the first period, Josh Anderson scored to put Montreal ahead 2-1.

The Canadiens went up 3-1 when Tomas Tatar scored on a power play at 7:20 of the second period.

Tatar scored on a breakaway as the Leafs were on a really bad line change.

Nylander scored his second goal at 18:00 on the power play.

John Tavares scored on a two man advantage at 19:21 of the second period to tie the game 3-3.

Anderson scored his second goal at 1:03 of the third period to put Montreal ahead again.

Jimmy Vesey tied the game at 10:33 to push the game into overtime.

At 3:34 of overtime, Morgan Rielly scored to give Toronto their first victory of the season.

Nylander had three points last night.

Leaf's goaltender, Frederick Andersen stopped 32 shots.

Canadien's goaltender, Carey Price stopped 34 shots last night.

Toronto is off to Ottawa to play the Senators tomorrow night.
