Johnsson leads Maple Leafs to 6-0 win over Red Wings
DETROIT — The resurgent Toronto Maple Leafs are enjoying life under new coach Sheldon Keefe. Andreas Johnsson had two goals and an assist, and Toronto routed the skidding Detroit Red Wings 6-0 on Wednesday night for its third straight win since Keefe got the job. “We're getting everyone involved and getting more offence,” defenceman Tyson Barrie said. “Once you get a goal and a couple points, you start to feel better.”Barrie scored his third of the season — all in the last three games — and also had an assist. Frederik Andersen made 25 saves for his 17th career shutout.
Andreas Johnsson was placed on long-term injury reserve by the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday after suffering a leg injury.
Exact details of what the injury is wasn’t disclosed, but the team said in a release that Johnsson underwent a CT scan on Thursday and will be reassessed after the Christmas break.
The 25-year-old suffered the injury Wednesday against the Colorado Avalanche after blocking a shot by Ryan Graves of the Avalanche. He limped to the dressing room after the incident.
Johnsson has six goals and 10 assists in 30 games for Toronto this season.
The Maple Leafs recalled forwards Nic Petan and Pontus Aberg from the American Hockey League on Friday along with defenceman Martin Marincin.
