Nylander’s OT goal gives Maple Leafs 5-4 win over Blues

ST. LOUIS (AP) — William Nylander scored on a breakaway in overtime for Toronto after teammate TJ Brodie missed a penalty shot earlier in the extra session, and the Maple Leafs beat the St. Louis Blues 5-4 on Tuesday.

Justin Holl, Alexander Kerfoot, Calle Jarnkrok and John Tavares also scored for Toronto, and Ilya Samsonov made 30 saves as the Leafs won their third straight to improve to 10-2-1 in December.

Jordan Kyrou, Calle Rosen, Ryan O’Reilly and Justin Faulk scored for the Blues.

Jordan Binnington allowed five goals on 37 shots as St. Louis dropped its third straight after winning four in a row.

Nylander scored his 21st goal of the season with 57 seconds remaining in overtime after he forced Vladimir Tarasenko to turn the puck over in the Leafs’ zone. Nylander has recorded a point in five straight games with four goals and three assists in that span.

Brodie was awarded a penalty shot 1:24 into overtime after being tripped by Kyrou, but Binnington got his right pad on the puck to preserve the 4-4 tie.

Kyrou tied the game at 4-4 with his team-leading 17th goal of the season 5:13 into the third period. Kyrou, who returned after missing two games with an upper-body injury, has seven goals and three assists in his last four games.

Jarnkrok scored from behind the goal line to put Toronto ahead 4-3 with 4:44 remaining in the second period.

Faulk scored on a power play to tie the game 3-3 9:30 into the second period.

O’Reilly scored his 10th of the season 7:39 into the second period to cut the Blues’ deficit to 3-2.

Kerfoot scored a short-handed goal with Holl serving a penalty for boarding Robert Thomas 5:26 into the second period to put Toronto ahead 3-1.


The Blues placed D Torey Krug on injured reserve with a lower-body injury and said he’ll be re-evaluated in six weeks. Krug left the ice in the final seconds of Friday’s shootout loss at Vegas after blocking a shot off his foot. The club recalled D Tyler Tucker, who was a healthy scratch.
