WASHINGTON — Goaltender Braden Holtby and the Washington Capitals will try to cool off Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night at Capital One Arena.Mathews has nine goals and three assists in five games and the Maple Leafs are off to a 4-1 start.In a 5-3 win at Detroit Thursday night Youth Jake McCabe Jersey , Matthews scored twice on the power play for the Maple Leafs, who were 2-for-4 with the man-advantage. They’re 7-for-14 with the extra man so far this season.Article continues below ...“We have a lot of guys who can finish on this team, especially when we are on the power play,” Toronto center John Tavares told NHL.com. “When I get the puck, I’m just trying to get it to an open player. If that’s (Matthews), it is an automatic goal right now.”Tavares had a career-high four assists against Detroit — giving him 10 points — and Mitchell Marner and Morgan Rielly each had a goal and an assist. Frederik Andersen made 26 saves.Matthews has scored in five straight games and is one game shy of tying Sweeney Schriner’s 74-year-old team record for most consecutive games at the start of a season with at least one goal. He’s recorded multiple points in all five games.Defenseman Rielly has 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in his first five games, the best five-game start by an NHL defenseman in modern history. The previous high was 11 points by Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins in 1973-74.“I think it’s great for all the guys that are doing some scoring right now Jason Pominville Jersey Kids ,” Leafs coach Mike Babcock told the Toronto Sun. “In the end, though, it’s about winning every night and it doesn’t really matter on our team who does the scoring as long as we score enough to find a way to win. I think the guys have been real good about that.”The last player to record nine goals in the first five games of the season will also be on the ice Saturday night as Washington winger Alex Ovechkin accomplished the feat last season.Ovechkin and company didn’t manage any goals when they suffered their first regulation defeat of the season — 6-0 to the New Jersey Devils Thursday night.Playing the second of back-to-backs, the Stanley Cup champs fell behind early and the Devils poured it on late.“I think it’s going to be like that all season,” Washington’s Lars Eller told NBCSportsWashington.com of the Devils’ all-out effort. “Teams are going to want to beat the champs and show their best. They got a lot of energy going tonight and we didn’t have as much of it.”The Capitals (2-1-1) entered the game having scored a franchise-best 18 goals, the most in their history through the first three games of the season.Back-up goalie Pheonix Copley made 30 saves for the Capitals against New Jersey.“First period especially, he was really good,” Caps defenseman Matt Niskanen told NBCSportsWashington.com. “He didn’t get a very good effort in front of him. He played hard and made some big saves in the first when it was still close. The rest of us got to do better.”Washington opens a three-game homestand against the Maple Leafs Womens Johan Larsson Jersey , who are finishing a four-game road swing.Holtby is 8-3-1 with a 2.05 goals against average and .934 save percentage versus the Maple Leafs, while Andersen is 3-1-1 with a 2.88 GAA and .909 save percentage against Washington. After going 0-2-2 in the four games following a 10-game winning streak, the Buffalo Sabres have had a chance to take a break from games the past three days It also meant they could get in a couple practices, which were limited during their recent cramped schedule.In their first-game since an overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, which followed a loss to the Predators in Nashville the night before, the Sabres will play host to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday afternoon.Article continues below ...The Tuesday game marked the completion of a stretch of 11 games in 19 days for Buffalo.“A lot of times you lose practice time and we understand that,” Sabres left winger Conor Sheary told the Buffalo News Friday after the Sabres completed their first back-to-back practice days since mid-November. “So, when you get these kind of days here Authentic Justin Bailey Jersey , you want to take advantage of them, really work on your special teams and your five-on-five play and get better at them. It’s definitely good for us.”“It’s been refreshing,” Buffalo defenseman Zach Bogosian said. “It’s good to see a little slowdown of pace in the schedule. It doesn’t mean the games are going to be any less intense but it’s nice to get a few days between games and throw a day off in there too.”The Sabres defeated the Flyers 5-2 Nov. 21 at home.Buffalo (17-8-4) will be without goaltender Carter Hutton for the game Saturday. He is out with an upper-body injury.The injury apparently came during the 2-1 loss in Nashville.Scott Wedgewood has been called up from Rochester of the American Hockey League to serve as Linus Ullmark’s backup on Saturday.“We’re just being cautious with it, giving him a maintenance day yesterday,” Housley said. “He’s still day to day and he hasn’t really skated.
