Auston Matthews has done it again! The Toronto Maple Leafs superstar lit the lamp for his league-leading 60th goal of the season in a 3-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night. The crowd, despite being in Buffalo, was overwhelmingly supportive of the Leafs and Matthews, as a chorus of “MVP! MVP!” chants echoed throughout the arena.
