Matthews scores power-play goal in OT, Leafs knot series

TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Maple Leafs rallied from a three-goal deficit in the third period and Auston Matthews scored on a power play 13:10 into overtime to beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 on Friday night, tying the best-of-five qualifying series at two wins apiece.

The Leafs scored three times in 3:34 to knot the score late in a game that Columbus and goalie Elvis Merzlikins had largely controlled until then. On Thursday night, the Blue Jackets had rallied from three goals down to eventually win in overtime.

This time, with Nick Foligno in the penalty box on a questionable tripping call, Matthews beat Elvis Merzlikins from the right circle off a neat feed from John Tavares to push the series to a decisive Game 5 on Sunday.
