A recap of last night's Edmonton/Toronto game.

After losing 3-1 to the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs wanted to redeem themselves last night.

Unfortunately, the Leafs had to do it without Auston Matthews and Joe Thornton.

It was confirmed yesterday that Thornton is out for four weeks with factured ribs.

There was no scoring in the first period.

Toronto did, however, out shot Edmonton in the first period 12-11.

"We were pushing offensively early in the game," said Leaf's head coach, Sheldon Keefe at last night's postgame press conference.

Leon Draisaitl opened the scoing with a short-handed goal at 5:12 of the second period.

43 seconds later, Adam Brooks tied the game with a power play goal.

Jimmy Vesey put the Leafs ahead 2-1 at 11:16.

Just 50 seconds into the third period, Connor McDavid tied the game.

At 11:46, John Tavares scored on the power play and put the Leafs ahead 3-2.

Mitch Marner scored an empty netter with 0.4 seconds to go in the game to give the Leafs the 4-2 victory.

Toronto's William Nylander had two assists.
