Frederik Andersen stellar as Maple Leafs down Golden Knights

TORONTO — Frederik Andersen made 36 saves as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Connor Brown, Mitch Marner and Nazem Kadri, into an empty net, scored for Toronto (10-5-0). Brown also had an assist.

Cody Eakin replied for Vegas (6-8-1), which got 18 stops from Marc-Andre Fleury.

The Knights were by far the better team through two periods and had a couple of opportunities to tie the score early in the third down 2-1 only to watch Andersen shut the door.

Patrick Marleau nearly made it 3-1 for Toronto moments later off a pass from Kasperi Kapanen on a 2-on-1 rush, but the veteran flubbed his shot wide.

The Knights, who got winger Max Pacioretty back from an upper-body injury but are still without centre Paul Stastny, lost another forward when Erik Haula went down with an apparent right leg injury five minutes into the third.
