Maple Leafs’ Auston Matthews is on pace for the NHL’s most goals in a season in nearly 30 years

Toronto’s Auston Matthews leads the NHL with 58 goals this season, and he’s on pace to score 67. That would surpass Alex Ovechkin’s 65 from 2007-08 as the league’s most since the salary cap era began in 2005 and tops overall since Mario Lemieux’s 68 in 1995-96. Ovechkin says he’s rooting for Matthews to pass him and maybe even hit 70. That would Matthews going on a tear with 12 goals in the Maple Leafs’ final 12 games to happen.
