NHL: The Matthews Gala

Toronto's top attacker led the Maple Leafs to a 7-2 win over Washington with two goals and three assists. Russian Alex Ovechkin scored both goals for the Capitals.

Auston Matthews is a Toronto fan favorite. He's scoring goals on a regular basis - 57 in this year's NHL season. But he also prepares them, as his three assists against Washington prove.

Ovechkin has been scoring goals in the best league in the world for 19 years now. The 38-year-old has 845 goals - he is still 49 short of Wayne Gretzky's all-time record (894). Ovechkin currently has 1.539 scoring points in the NHL.
