MONTREAL (AP) It took Auston Matthews only two periods to get into his groove.

Back after missing four games with an upper body injury, Matthews scored twice in the third period to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Montreal Canadiens 6-0 Saturday night for their sixth straight win.

Ron Hainsey and Nazem Kadri scored 37 seconds apart in the second period, and James van Riemsdyk and Connor Brown also scored for Toronto. Frederik Andersen stopped 33 shots for his second straight shutout.
