Leksand extended the winning streak beat AIK

Järnkrok gave Toronto a 3-2 lead just over nine minutes into the second period, played by Auston Matthews, who after the game paid tribute to his teammate:

— He’s just so sneakily good at so many things. He’s so smart, gets in great spots all over the ice, not just in the offensive zone.

“He’s just a very easy guy to play with.”

Järnkrok also scored 4–2 after almost ten minutes of play in the third period. It was his 17th goal of the season. He has thus scored points in four games in a row.

Ottawa came back with two goals by Brady Tkachuk before the end of the period. After a scoreless overtime, Toronto’s Alexander Kerfoot decided on penalties.

New York Rangers Mika Zibanejad also scored a goal during the night and also had two assists. The Swede started the goal celebration against Pittsburgh, which fell 6–0 to the Rangers.

Pittsburgh running back Marcus Pettersson had to leave the game early in the third period due to an injury, Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan announced after the game.
