    TORONTO (AP) One little tweak to Toronto’s lines is paying off in a big way for the Maple Leafs.Nazem Kadri had three goals and two assists Jeff Skinner Jersey , Frederik Andersen made a career-high 54 saves and surging Toronto beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-3 on Wednesday night.The line of Kadri, Patrick Marleau and Mitch Marner combined for five goals and five assists.

That’s the beauty of having more players. You move them around and once in a while you get lucky.”Andersen also turned in a solid performance as the Maple Leafs closed out a perfect five-game homestand. It was the first time in franchise history that the team swept a homestand of five games or more.”I had a clean view of most of the shots, and I think that was the key to withstand all of that,” Andersen said.The Blue Jackets recorded 50 or more shots for the third straight game, making them the first team to accomplish the feat in the post-expansion era (since 1967-68). Nick Foligno had two goals and an assist, and Joonas Korpisalo made 22 saves.Toronto played much of the game without defenseman Jake Gardiner Womens Justin Faulk Jersey , who departed with a lower-body injury after one period.”I’m not exactly sure how it happened.

It was Johnson’s third goal of the season.Toronto then put it away with two in the third. Kadri got his 21st of the season at 11:21, and Marleau added an empty-netter with 1:47 left.”I like the way we played,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. ”Problem tonight for us is we couldn’t finish.”The Maple Leafs opened the scoring when Dominic Moore finished a 2-on-1 with his fifth goal at 4:38 of the first. With David Savard taking away the passing lane to Kasperi Kapanen, Moore used a backhanded shot to beat Korpisalo.Kadri cut around Korpisalo before using a screen to make it 2-0 at 7:36, but the Blue Jackets pulled within one when Foligno received a centering pass from Alexander Wennberg and fired a backhander by Andersen with 1:39 left.Foligno scored his 13th goal early in the second. He received a pass from Wennberg on a 2-on-1 and beat Andersen at 2:25.But Kadri’s one-timer made it 3-2 at 8:03 and he set up Marner’s one-timer at 10:17.NOTES: Toronto D Travis Dermott had two assists. … Columbus was 0 for 2 on the power play, and Toronto went 0 for 3 with the man advantage.UP NEXTBlue Jackets: Host Philadelphia on Friday night.Maple Leafs: Visits Pittsburgh on Saturday night.

His previous hat trick was Nov. 4, 2017 against Pittsburgh.“It was nice,” Boeser said. “I’ve been battling and a battle through some injury. I feel like I’ve been getting chances lately and our line has been playing solid hockey. It’s nice to get a few lucky bounces and get the hat trick.”Boeser scored his first goal on a shot that deflected off the end boards and hit the back of Allen’s leg pads before trickling into the net.“Whenever a goal scorer gets a lucky-bounce goal, you’re hoping it’s the start of something good,” Canucks coach Travis Green said. “Our two young guys, they were great tonight.
