MONTREAL (AP) Ron Hainsey and Nazem Kadri scored 37 seconds apart in the second period, Frederik Andersen stopped 33 shots for his second straight shutout, and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Montreal Canadiens 6-0 Saturday night for their sixth straight win.
Auston Matthews had two goals, and James van Riemsdyk and Connor Brown also scored for Toronto. The Maple Leafs were coming off a 1-0 overtime win over New Jersey two nights earlier in which Andersen had 42 saves.
Charlie Lindgren finished with 22 saves, giving up five goals for the second straight game. He was replaced at 9:39 of the third by Antti Niemi, who stopped three of four shots he faced in his first game for Montreal since he was claimed off waivers this week.
