POSTGAME QUOTES
HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On today’s game:
Power play helped us get the lead. Generally speaking, I thought five-on-five we had a pretty good game. Their goalie made a lot of good saves. Thought we controlled the game at even-strength for the most part. We just had a hard time cracking the code on getting pucks through him. Towards the end in the third period, they had a little bit of a push. Obviously playing a team back-to-back on a weekend, it’s really hard to beat a team twice and they were super motivated to not lose two in a row to us. Overall if we’re looking at our process, there are games this year our special teams and goaltending have won us the game even when we may not have controlled the game. I see this as a fourth game now where we’re playing much better, more consistent in controlling the game at even-strength. Today we just couldn’t find the bounces.

On the Rich Clune retirement ceremony:
Just trying to hold back the tears. Since I’ve been here, a lot has happened, and he’s been here the whole time since this season. As a head coach, you lean on your captain a lot. There’s a lot of conversations. We’re on the same page, pulling the rope in the same direction and you really need the perspective and voice of your captain to help you as a head coach to lead your team. I can’t say enough for what he’s done for me, for what he’s done for this organization and what he’s done for his teammates. He’s continuing to do it here as a development coach within the Toronto Maple Leafs organization. For all of us staff that have worked with him and been through thick and thin, it was great to celebrate him and the emotions were very positive.

ON THE PENALTY KILL: Ottawa has overcome four of the four occasions the team has been shorthanded in 2022-23 to maintain an
efficiency of 100.0% through one regular-season game … The team has yet to register a shorthanded marker this season after
recording nine such goals in 2021-22.
INDIVIDUAL NOTES
COACH SMITH: D.J. Smith was introduced as the Senators’ 14th head coach in franchise history on 5/23/19. A native of Windsor, Ont.,
Smith spent the four previous NHL seasons as an assistant coach with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Prior to joining the Maple Leafs (which
was also the team for which he made his NHL playing debut in 1996-97), Smith guided the Ontario Hockey League’s Oshawa Generals
to a record of 135-53-3-13 over three campaigns which included his having been recognized as the OHL’s Coach of the Year in 2013-

  1. One year later, he helped the team capture the Mastercard Memorial Cup. His 81 head coaching victories with Ottawa see him rank
    sixth in franchise history.
    SECOND SEASON AS CAPTAIN FOR CHUCKY: Two-time NHL All-Star Brady Tkachuk was appointed the 10th captain in Senators
    franchise history on 11/5/21. A native of St. Louis, Tkachuk succeeded Erik Karlsson who served in the role for four seasons from 2014-
    15 to 2017-18. The bronze medal winner with Team U.S.A. at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship is the first American-born
    skater to serve as team captain. Tkachuk is assisted by full-time alternates Thomas Chabot and Claude Giroux.
    1 FOR 85: By way of skating in Thursday’s 4-1 loss at Buffalo, Senators defenceman Jake Sanderson made his NHL debut after being
    drafted fifth-overall by the club in 2020. A native of Whitefish, Montana, the rearguard became the first native of the state to appear in
    an NHL contest while making his debut against the same team his father Geoff did, when as a member of the Hartford Whalers, he
    participated in the first of his 1,104 regular season games on 3/30/91. In skating in 22:21 time-on-ice (the second highest total on the
    club), he became one of nine players since 2013 to appear in at least 22 minutes during their first game while sporting the number 85 –
    the second player in franchise history to do so joining Vitaly Abramov who wore it for five regular season games from 2018-19 to 2020-
    21.
    ALL-TIME LEADERS: Chris Phillips is the Senators’ all-time leader in games played (1,179) … Daniel Alfredsson leads in goals (426),
    assists (682) and points (1,108) … Following Phillips is Alfredsson (1,178), Chris Neil (1,026), Wade Redden (838), Radek Bonk (689),
    Jason Spezza (686) and Mike Fisher (675) … Neil leads in penalty minutes (2,522) while Patrick Lalime holds the lead in shutouts (30)
    and ranks second (283) to Craig Anderson (435) in games played among goaltenders. Anderson leads in wins (202).

been played against the Canadiens, with Toronto posting a 13-8-1 record. Only seven of those games
have been played on the road (3-4).

Toronto captured a 7-2 win against Winnipeg. Toronto has won five consecutive season opening games.
Toronto went 23-13-5 through 41 road games during the 2021-22 season. The Maple Leafs tied a franchise record with 23 road wins.
Zach Aston-Reese, Nicolas Aubé-Kubel, Jordie Benn (LTIR), Calle Järnkrok, Matt Murray and Ilya Samsonov are the Maple Leafs’ new additions entering tonight’s season opening game against the
Canadiens. Denis Malgin re-joins Toronto after spending the last two seasons playing for the Lausanne

The Maple Leafs set multiple franchise records during the 2021-22 regular season including:

  • Most points in a single season with 115.
  • Most wins in a single season with 54.
  • Most home wins in a single season with 31.
  • Tied the franchise record for most road wins in a single season with 23 (also recorded in 2003-04 and
    2018-19).
    Toronto was one of only five NHL teams (CGY, COL, FLA, NSH, TOR) with three players or more with
    80+ points (Matthews, Marner and Nylander) and the only team in the league with six players to hit 60
    points (Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Tavares, Rielly and Bunting).
    The Maple Leafs led the NHL with a 27.3% power play percentage. William Nylander led the team with
    31 power play points (13G, 18A) while Auston Matthews paced the club in power play goals with 16. The
    club also led the league in shorthanded goals with 13. Mitch Marner led current Toronto skaters in
    shorthanded goals last season with three, an NHL career high.
    11 different Toronto skaters set career-highs with the Maple Leafs last season including:
    Justin Holl in games played (69), goals (3), assists (20) and points (23).
    Alexander Kerfoot in games played (82), assists (38) and points (51).

    Along with recording career-highs in goals, assists and points, Auston Matthews set a new franchise
    record for the most goals scored in a single-season with 60, eclipsing Rick Vaive’s previous record of 54
    on April 7th at DAL. Matthews won the Hart Memorial Trophy and the Ted Lindsay Award while also
    capturing the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s goal-scoring leader (60) for the second straight season.
    Toronto Maple Leafs: Media Notes
    Michael Bunting led all NHL rookies with 63 points, tied for second in goals (23) and ranked second in
    assists (40). The Scarborough, ON native recorded the third-most points (63) and second-most assists

assists) and Nikita Kucherov chipped in three points (goal, 2 assists) to lead the Lightning charge…Lightning netminder Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped
31-of-34 shots to pick up his 50th career playoff win…Tampa Bay never trailed in the win…Brandon Hagel netted what would prove to be the gamewinning goal at 1:33 of the third period for his first career playoff goal, which gave the Bolts a 4-1 lead at the time…Pat Maroon skated in his 50th career

HED OF THE CLASS
Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman scored a goal and added three assists Game 2 at TOR to set a career high and a record for a Lightning
defenseman for scoring in a playoff contest and match his career high for assists in the postseason (also: 0-3–3 pts. Game 1 2021 1st Rd. at FLA and 0-
3–3 pts. Game 3 2021 1st Rd. vs. FLA)…Hedman became the sixth different player in franchise history to register four or more points in a playoff
contest, joining Nikita Kucherov (3x), Brayden Point (2x), Tyler Johnson, Alex Killorn and Vincent Lecavalier…Hedman scored his 20th career
playoff goal with three seconds left in the first period on a power play for Tampa Bay’s first goal of the series, the Swedish defenseman becoming the
ninth Lightning player all-time to reach 20 goals in the postseason and the third active defenseman to notch at least 20 career postseason goals, joining
Kris Letang (22) and Brent Burns (20)…Hedman owns the most postseason points among active NHL defensemen.
