The game-winning goal against the Flyers came with 10 seconds left in the game.
30-year-old Matt Hunwick has been around. He’s been a Bruin, an Avalanche, and a Ranger, but the one thing he’s never done is score a goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs. In 42 games as a Leaf, Hunwick has 5 assists and 26 PIM — and after tonight, 1 goal.
Deployed on the top D-pair with Morgan Rielly tonight, Hunwick clocked a team-leading 23:58 before being sent out onto the ice for the last push before the buzzer.
JP Nikota described the play thus: “Fortunately for the good guys, with just 12 seconds left in regulation, Bozak won an offensive zone draw back to Matt Hunwick, who hesitated, and then blasted a point shot past Neuvirth to put the Leafs ahead with just 7 seconds left.”
