TORONTO (AP) — Frederik Andersen made 36 saves to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Connor Brown, Mitch Marner                and Nazem Kadri scored for Toronto (10-5-0). Brown also had an assist.

Cody Eakin scored for Vegas (6-8-1), which got 18 stops from Marc-Andre Fleury.

The Knights had a couple of opportunities to tie it early in the third down 2-1 only to have Andersen shut the door.

Patrick Marleau nearly made it 3-1 for Toronto moments later off a pass from Kasperi Kapanen on a 2-on-1 rush, but the veteran flubbed his shot wide.

The Knights got forward Max Pacioretty back from an upper-body injury but are still without center Paul Stastny. They lost another forward when Erik Haula went down with an apparent right leg injury five minutes into the third.

Haula, who collided with Marleau along the boards, stayed down for a few minutes as he was attended to by trainers from both teams before being stretchered off.
