  Preview: Maple Leafs look for win number seven The Toronto Maple Leafs won their sixth game in a row last night when they defeated the New Jersey Devils in overtime. I had no idea that they were on such a roll. I suppose the beginning of the season damped my spirits a bit, and the craziness of the past couple weeks pushed any kind of critical thinking out of my mind, The Maple Leafs look to extend the winning streak to seven games tonight, but first they’ll have to face off against noted Leafs killer Alexander Georgiev in net and the explosive firepower of New York Rangers forward Greg McKegg.Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Rangers7:00PM - CBC, Sportsnet, NHL Network, MSG+, NHL.

Tony DeAngelo had a night to remember at Madison Square Garden.

The New York Rangers defenseman tallied five points on the back of his first career hat trick against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday. DeAngelo's big night tied the single-game franchise record by a defenseman for both goals and points, according to Rangers Stats and Info.

All three of DeAngelo's goals in the 6-3 victory came from virtually the same spot on the ice, as the 24-year-old became the first Rangers defenseman to record a regular-season hat trick since Reijo Ruotsalainen in 1982.

His most impressive play came on an assist in the opening period. DeAngelo connected with forward Chris Kreider on a perfect full-ice bank pass for a highlight-reel goal.

DeAngelo now has 11 goals and 36 points - both career highs - through just 43 games this season.

Barzal agrees with Trotz's decision to bench him: 'I was in the wrong' .
New York Islanders forward Mathew Barzal isn't holding any grudges against his coach after he was benched in the third period Tuesday against the New York Rangers. "As a young guy, I know an example needs to be set," Barzal said at Thursday's All-Star media day, according to Newsday's Laura Albanese. "I was in the wrong." With the Islanders up by three late in the game, Barzal had a defensive lapse which resulted in a turnover and almost led to a goal. Despite having two assists on the night, head coach Barry Trotz opted to bench Barzal for nearly the last 18 minutes of the game due to his mistake.
