After a busy weekend in sport only eight teams took to the ice for a quiet Monday night.
Anaheim Ducks v Toronto Maple Leafs
Jake Muzzin scored his first goal since joining the Maple Leafs and had two assists to go with it in a 6-1 thrashing of the Anaheim Ducks. They are his first three points for the Leafs after being acquired from the L.A. Kings on Jan. 28.
Andreas Johnson had two goals and assists, William Nylander and John Tavares each recorded a goal and an assist. Frederik Andersen made 24 saves for the hosts, who are on a four-game point streak (3-0-1).
Rickard Rakell scored the consolation for Anaheim, who have been outscored 23-5 during their four-game losing streak. John Gibson was pulled after allowing five goals on 30 shots, Chad Johnson made eight saves in relief.
Ducks v Canadiens – Tuesday, February 5th (7:30pm)
Senators v Leafs – Wednesday, February 6th (7:30pm)
Los Angeles Kings v New York Rangers
Tyler Toffoli scored 25 seconds into overtime to give the Kings a 4-3 comeback win against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Gardens.
Toffoli, who assisted Arian Kempe‘s game-tying goal at 19:00 of the third period, scored with a short-side shot shortly after Rangers’ Mika Zibanejad hit the post with a shot from the left circle.
Kempe returned the favor with an assist on the winning goal. Anze Kopitar also scored, whilst Ilya Kovalchuk had two assists and Jonathan Quick made 24 saves for the Kings, who trailed on three occasions.
Adam McQuaid, Zibanejad and Chris Kreider scored for New York. Mats Zuccarello had an assist in the game to extend his point streak to eight. Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves.
Kings v Devils – Tuesday, February 5th (7pm – ESPN+)
Bruins v Rangers – Wednesday, February 6th (8pm – NBCSN)
Vancouver Canucks v Philadelphia Flyers
Carter Hart made 41 saves for the Flyers in their eight consecutive win. Sean Couturier and Jakub Voracek scored for the hosts, who are on their longest winning streak since they won 10 in a row from Nov. 27 – Dec. 14, 2016.
Hart has won seven in a row, making history as only the fourth goalie in NHL history to have a winning-streak of that length before turning 21. The 20-year-old is the first since Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens went 7-0-0 from March 20. to April 5. in 2008.
Brock Boeser scored and Jacob Markstrom made 28 saves for the Vancouver Canucks, who are 3-2-0 in their last five.
Vancouver defenseman Alexander Edler was taken off the ice on a stretcher hitting the ice face-first. He was defending in the Canucks zone in the third period when it appeared his stick got caught in Jakub Voracek‘s skate, pulling the 32-year-old to the ice. He left with 10:22 left in the game, but not before registering four shots on goal.
Canucks v Capitals – Tuesday, February 5th (7pm)
Kings v Flyers – Thursday, February 7th (7pm)

Roope Hintz, John Klingberg, Radek Faksa and Mattias Janmark also scored, Miro Heiskanen and Jamie Benn each recorded two assists, and Ben Bishop made 28 saves for Dallas.
