TORONTO (AP) One little tweak to Toronto’s lines is paying off in a big way for the Maple Leafs.Nazem Kadri had three goals and two assists Troy Brouwer Jersey Womens , Frederik Andersen made a career-high 54 saves and surging Toronto beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-3 on Wednesday night.The line of Kadri, Patrick Marleau and Mitch Marner combined for five goals and five assists.

That’s the beauty of having more players. You move them around and once in a while you get lucky.”Andersen also turned in a solid performance as the Maple Leafs closed out a perfect five-game homestand. It was the first time in franchise history that the team swept a homestand of five games or more.”I had a clean view of most of the shots, and I think that was the key to withstand all of that,” Andersen said.The Blue Jackets recorded 50 or more shots for the third straight game, making them the first team to accomplish the feat in the post-expansion era (since 1967-68). Nick Foligno had two goals and an assist, and Joonas Korpisalo made 22 saves.Toronto played much of the game without defenseman Jake Gardiner, who departed with a lower-body injury after one period.”I’m not exactly sure how it happened. He’s got some kind of spasm or something like that,” Babcock said.The Maple Leafs had a 4-2 lead before Jack Johnson beat Andersen with a slap shot from the left circle that went off the post and into the net at 14:35 of the second. It was Johnson’s third goal of the season.Toronto then put it away with two in the third. Kadri got his 21st of the season at 11:21 http://www.officialcanadiensprostore.com/authentic-adidas-phillip-danault-jersey , and Marleau added an empty-netter with 1:47 left.”I like the way we played,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. ”Problem tonight for us is we couldn’t finish.”The Maple Leafs opened the scoring when Dominic Moore finished a 2-on-1 with his fifth goal at 4:38 of the first. With David Savard taking away the passing lane to Kasperi Kapanen, Moore used a backhanded shot to beat Korpisalo.Kadri cut around Korpisalo before using a screen to make it 2-0 at 7:36, but the Blue Jackets pulled within one when Foligno received a centering pass from Alexander Wennberg and fired a backhander by Andersen with 1:39 left.Foligno scored his 13th goal early in the second. He received a pass from Wennberg on a 2-on-1 and beat Andersen at 2:25.But Kadri’s one-timer made it 3-2 at 8:03 and he set up Marner’s one-timer at 10:17.NOTES: Toronto D Travis Dermott had two assists. … Columbus was 0 for 2 on the power play, and Toronto went 0 for 3 with the man advantage.UP NEXTBlue Jackets: Host Philadelphia on Friday night.Maple Leafs: Visits Pittsburgh on Saturday night. ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Wild captain Mikko Koivu will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament and cartilage in his right knee in an on-ice collision, a major setback for a team with a tenuous hold on a playoff spot.The 35-year-old Koivu tore his ACL and meniscus and will have surgery on Friday, the Wild announced on Wednesday. He was hurt Tuesday night at Buffalo when he collided with Sabres forward Tage Thompson in the first period of Minnesota’s 5-4 shootout loss.The Wild (26-22-5), who are in fourth place in the Central Division Womens Craig Smith Jersey , currently hold the first wild card spot in the Western Conference, three points ahead of with one game in hand on Vancouver. They’ve taken only two of a possible six points since their bye week, though, and they’ve already been without defenseman Matt Dumba for almost two months because of a ruptured right pectoralis muscle near his shoulder. Dumba, who’s still tied for fourth on the team with 12 goals despite his absence, might not return this season.Drafted out of Finland with the sixth overall pick in 2001, Koivu is in his 14th year with the Wild and atop the franchise’s career list in several statistical categories, including games (973), points (688) Filip Forsberg Jersey , assists (487), shots (2,196), power-play points (244), short-handed points (24) and multi-point games (150).

The Wild recalled center Joel Eriksson Ek from their AHL affiliate in Iowa to fill Koivu’s roster spot, in advance of their game Thursday night against Edmonton.
