NHL: Alex Galchenyuk scores for Maple Leafs Outstanding in Flames

Alex Galchenyuk scored his first goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who beat the Calgary Flames 4-2 on Sunday.

The former Canadians hit the target in the midfield to tie the score at 2-2 in their eighth game with the Torontonians. He inherited a short throw from John Tavares in the enclave to easily defeat David Rittich who was removed from the position.

It was his second goal of the season as he scored for the Ottawa Senators.

Tavares gave Leafs the lead in the third period and Aston Mathews doubled his lead moments with his 25th goal. In the early days Morgan was really a teammate on Matthews Net.

Michael Hutchinson, who started the Leafs, was defeated by Joachim Nordstrom and Andrew Mangiapen. He made 32 savings to help his team record their sixth win in their last seven games.

Mark Giordano reached the career 500-point plateau with his help on the Nordstrom goal. During the first break, he indicated that he had promised his son Jack that he would get this thing in the evening for his birthday. He kept that promise.

The Flames conceded a third consecutive loss and were six points behind fourth-placed Montreal Canadians in the North Division. However, there are five more games for the Hobbs to play.

Both teams will cross the swords again on Monday. Maple Leafs have won five of the seven clashes between the two clubs this season
