Jake Virtanen scored twice, leading the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night in the opener of a two-game set. Bo Horvat also scored for Vancouver, providing a bit of a cushion with a goal midway through the third period. Pierre Engvall scored for the Maple Leafs off an assist from Ilya Mikheyev.
Toronto will get two of its most important players back in time to close out the three-game series vs. Edmonton.
Leon Draisaitl had an appropriately sarcastic response waiting for a reporter after getting swept by the Maple Leafs.
