Matthews is just one game shy of the NHL record for most consecutive games scoring on the road, currently held by Pavel Bure and Steve Yzerman. Matthews has 25 goals and became the first Toronto Maple Leaf in team history to start his career with six straight 25-plus goal seasons.

Igor Shesterkin stopped 26-of-28 shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Shesterkin surrendered goals to Oskar Lindblom and Cam York in the first and third periods, respectively. York's goal put New York down 2-1 on the scoreboard for less than a minute before Filip Chytil responded with a goal of his own against Carter Hart. Shesterkin has been all kinds dominant of late, having posted back-to-back shutouts entering action on Saturday. The Rangers will meet up with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, when next they take to the ice.
