Leafs sign veteran Polak to one-year deal

The loss also became the first blemish on the Leafs' road record as they had entered the game with three wins in three attempts.

"It's going to be a real challenge for us and I think that's what we need".

- If you froze time like in the movie Click, and picked up the puck and placed it in the flawless spot with your hand, you would've put it exactly where Nylander put it on that power play marker. He has been easy to talk to and we've had some good conversations on how we can get better. It's going to be a real challenge for us. "We didn't handle it real well [against Ottawa] so we've got another opportunity". The Kings seem surprised by their fast start.

"Playing against a team that's doing a great job defensively is good", Rielly said. Everyone remembers the Philadelphia Flyers' in-game protest against his 1-3-1 in the 2011 playoffs; not as many remember that his Tampa team was top ten in offense in both of his full seasons there. Right winger Dustin Brown, who had an empty-net goal and three assists on Saturday, agreed: "I don't think you ever think (that)".

The Leafs tried to stay humble after oddsmakers made them Stanley Cup favourites coming off Wednesday's win over Detroit that briefly placed them first overall. They were 4-0-3 to open the 1995-96 season. It's true that the Senators struggled to score at times a year ago as Boucher undertook a full-blown overhaul of their 5v5 systems and focused on defense above all else, but when Boucher's systems are being executed properly, his teams can score more than their fair share off of their transition game and forecheck. Kopitar has equaled his points total to start the 2009-10 season, when he had a career-best 81 points, including 34 goals.

Of Polak's 634 National Hockey League games, 186 have been with the Leafs. You've got to give credit to them. "We told our guys, a win is a win, and I think the guys found a way to win". He also played in two postseason contests before suffering a gruesome leg injury that required surgery. The Kings feel that their good start will pay dividends later.

"We had the same thing previous year and we worked really hard at it and we're going to have to work really hard at it again", Karlsson said. The Kings have the NHL's best goal differential at plus-13. The Toronto Maple Leafs defencemen weren't referring to Saturday's 6-3 disappointment in Ottawa, but a game played more than 11 months before it.

Coach Mike Babcock ended his morning presser by predicting Mitch Marner would eventually play his way off the fourth line. "Can stickhandle in a phone booth". However, it would be Ottawa to win the game. "Makes the big plays at the right moment".

When push came to shove - literally - the Leafs coach went back to Borgman, breaking up a rotation with fellow Swedish rookie Calle Rosen and at times, Connor Carrick. "They play their system really well and we weren't very good tonight".

Coming off a bad performance in a 6-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators, the Toronto Maple Leafs added some defensive reinforcements with the signing of veteran blueliner Roman Polak to a one-year, $1.1 million deal on Sunday.
