Marleau's 99th game-winner carries Maple Leafs past Kings

What you need to know to start your NHL day @NHLdotcom

Patrick Marleau scored his 99th NHL game-winning goal to help the Toronto Maple Leafs hand the Los Angeles Kings their first regulation loss of the season and improve to 7-2-0.

Marleau, who signed a three-year contract with the Maple Leafs on July 2 after 19 seasons with the San Jose Sharks, scored his fourth goal of the season 2:54 into the third period. He deflected a shot by defenseman Morgan Rielly into the net for what proved to be the winning goal. 

Marleau moved past Hockey Hall of Famers Bobby Hull and Guy Lafleur into eighth place on the NHL's all-time game-winning goals list. 

Toronto has won at least seven of its first nine games of a season for the seventh time in franchise history.


That's Nash-ty

New York Rangers forward Rick Nash will enter a pretty exclusive club the second his skates touch the ice against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.


Stick it to 'em!

A diving Martin Jones and a hyper-aware Brent Burns saved a near goal for the San Jose Sharks in their win against the Rangers.


Special delivery

New Canadian postage stamps will honor the Maple Leafs' 100th NHL season. They will go on sale in Canada on Tuesday.


Get well, Patrick

Anaheim Ducks forward Patrick Eaves has been hospitalized in what is suspected to be Guillain-Barré syndrome. He released a statement on Monday.


Chalk it up to inspiration

A New Jersey artist created a chalk mural to Devils forward Brian Boyle and his fight against cancer. Boyle, who returned to practice on Sunday while still fighting chronic myeloid leukemia, has no timetable for his return to game action.


Who wants to see some puppy pics?

The Capitals and Bruins are trying their best to brighten your day by sharing some pictures of their players posing with dogs for their annual fundraising calendars.


Let's see that again

Take a look back at the week that was in the NHL once again with some ridiculously cool super slow motion replay. Pay extra close attention to Jonathan Quick's save at the 48-second mark.
