It took Vegas almost half of the first period to get a shot on Campbell.

Marner scored Toronto’s first goal at 11:31 of the opening period with a nifty move on Vegas forward Jake Leschyshyn in front of the Golden Knights’ goal, scoring on a backhand shot past Robin Lehner (29 saves).

Lehner made a couple of fine stops on Toronto defenseman Morgan Rielly, and another from close range on John Tavares during an power play early in the second period.

But Lehner couldn’t stop Matthews at 2:59 when he converted a cross-ice pass from Nylander. Matthews struck again with 44.6 seconds left in the period, lifting a rebound over Lehner.

Nylander scored off the rush early in the third period, with Brodie earning the secondary assist.

NOTES: Maple Leafs defenceman Travis Dermott missed most of the second period after blocking a shot. An X-ray was negative for serious injury and he returned to finish the game. … Toronto defenseman TJ Brodie played his 700th career regular-season game.
