The Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-0 on Tuesday afternoon at Toronto. Frederik Andersen stopped 20 shots to earn his third career playoff shutout as the Maple Leafs tied the best-of-five playoff qualifying series at one game each.
The Maple Leafs dominated play for much of the game, with John Tavares adding a third-period goal and Morgan Rielly scoring into an empty net at 19:17 of the third.
Toronto defenseman Jake Muzzin was taken off the ice on a stretcher with 1:52 to play in the game after taking an awkward fall in the Maple Leafs’ zone. His head appeared to hit the knee of Columbus’s Oliver Bjorkstrand as he fell.
Game 3 is at 8 p.m. EDT on Thursday.
