Zach Hyman tipped in the winning goal early in the first period as Toronto beat Edmonton 1-0 on Sunday night.

Hyman now has six goals and 15 points through 31 games this season. He is halfway towards beating his 28 points from last season.

William Nylander will slot in at center on Sunday night against Edmonton.

Nylander took line rushes with Zach Hyman and Connor Brown ahead of Sunday's tilt with the Oilers. Auston Matthews is out for the match due to an injury.

Auston Matthews will sit out the Maple Leafs’ tilt with the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.

The Maple Leafs star is dealing with an upper-body injury from Saturday night's win over Pittsburgh. With 13 goals and 13 assists in 26 games, the Leafs will surely miss the 20-year-old when they take on Connor McDavid and the Oilers.

Curtis McElhinney will be the Maple Leafs' starter on Sunday.

Toronto is getting into its second game in as many nights, so this is a logical time to start McElhinney. He has a 2-2-0 record, 3.06 GAA, and .900 save percentage in four contests this season.

Auston Matthews (upper body) is questionable for Sunday's game.

Matthews was struck in the head towards the end of Saturday's game, which is concerning. However, Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock seemed to paint Matthews' issue as minor. "He’s one of those guys that’s bumped and bruised here today," Babcock said. "So we’ll just go through it. We’ve had a couple guys that are – you know, it’s the season, you’re playing hockey. You see who’s available at game time." We probably won't know more about Matthews availability until the pregame warmups.

William Nylander logged just 8:39 minutes of ice time on Saturday.

It was the first time in Nylander's 133-game career that he's logged under 10 minutes. "We went with a shorter lineup, they played so few guys, we ended up playing less guys," Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock simply said after Toronto's 4-3 win over Pittsburgh. Nylander has had an up-and-down sophomore campaign that's resulted in him scoring five goals and 20 points in 30 contests so far.

Frederik Andersen stopped 33 of the 36 shots he faced as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Saturday night.

His record now sits at 17-8-1, and he sports a 2.67 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage. With his success, Toronto now sits tied for second overall in the Eastern Conference. He is a must-have in every fantasy league.

Tyler Bozak scored two goals as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Saturday night.

Bozak scored his team's last two goals, potting the game-winner with less than two minutes to play in the second period. The center now has six goals and 13 points in 29 games so far this season with the Maple Leafs. He hasn't produced as much as pundits predicted so far, but this game could prove to be the turning point for Bozak.
Dec 9 - 10:04 PM

Connor Carrick will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It's the sixth game in a row that Carrick will watch from the press box. He has one goal and two assists in 17 games this season. Josh Leivo and Nikita Soshnikov will also serve as healthy scratches in this one.

Morgan Rielly returned to the ice for Saturday's morning skate.
