Maple Leafs, Penguins Pick Up Wins

Jonathan Grant | January 6th, 2022

It was a relatively quiet night across the NHL landscape on Wednesday with just two games on the docket, but that still meant that plenty of goals was to be had. 14 of them to be exact as the Toronto Maple Leafs won 4-2 over the Edmonton Oilers and the Pittsburgh Penguins got a 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues. In Toronto, the Leafs dealt more pain out to the Oilers, sending them to the 11th loss in 13 outings.

The score was 2-2 after the first and remained that way until halfway through the third when Ilya Mikheyev scored on a power play. They’d add the fourth via an open net goal from Alexander Kerfoot with 15 seconds remaining in the contest. In the other action, the Penguins had to come from behind to take down the Blues on home ice. Down 2-0 and 3-1 in the second period, Bryan Rust, Evan Rodrigues, and Sidney Crosby led the Penguins back by scoring the game’s final four goals, three of which came in the last period. Rust finished with two goals and an assist while Crosby and Rodrigues had one apiece. Pittsburgh now has nine wins in a row and will look to keep that streak rolling as they take on Philly on Thursday.
