Matthews-led Leafs open homestand vs. Kings

TORONTO -- When Auston Matthews scored late in the third period Saturday night in the 4-2 victory over the Washington Capitals, the Toronto Maple Leafs center joined some elite company.

In scoring Toronto's final goal of the season, Matthews notched his league-leading 10th after six games.

He is the fifth player in the modern era (since 1943-44) to reach at least 10 goals in his team's first 20 games of the season. The others were Bobby Hull, 1965-66 (Chicago Blackhawks), Mike Bossy, 1984-85 (New York Islanders), Dino Ciccarelli, 1986-87 (Minnesota North Stars) and Mario Lemieux, 1988-89 (Pittsburgh Penguins).
