The Leafs fell behind 1-0 to Ottawa only 25 seconds into the game... then, with the game tied 2-2 in the second, Auston Matthews scores 2 goals to put the Leafs in total control of the game. Those 2 goals give Matthews 9 goals and 2 assists in 4 season opening games. Tyson Barrie also played outstanding and had 2 assists in his Toronto debut... the Leafs went on to beat Ottawa 5-3.
