Offense at a premium for Jackets, Leafs in 1-1 series

After exchanging shutouts in the first two games of their best-of-five Eastern Conference qualifying series, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Columbus Blue Jackets are both looking to generate more offense in Game 3 on Thursday in Toronto.

The Maple Leafs rebounded from a 2-0 loss in Game 1 with a dominant 3-0 victory in Game 2, outshooting Columbus by a 39-20 margin and controlling the majority of play.

Goalie Joonas Korpisalo almost single-handedly kept the Jackets in the game, stopping 36 of 38 shots. Auston Matthews' goal at 16:00 of the second period, however, finally returned dividends on Toronto's consistent pressure.
