Horvat, Miller lift Canucks past NHL-leading Maple Leafs

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Bo Horvat and J.T. Miller scored in a 42-second span in the third period and the Vancouver Canucks beat the NHL-leading Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 on Saturday night to sweep the two-game series.

Horvat tied it on a power play at 8:49, and Miller gave the Canucks the lead at 9:31. Nils Hoglander completed the scoring with 3:07 left.

Brock Boeser had a goal and two assists, and Thatcher Demko made 37 saves to help Vancouver improve to 11-15-2.

John Tavares and Jimmy Vesey scored for Toronto. The Maple Leafs dropped to 18-6-2 after losing two straight in regulation for the first time this season.

Vancouver caught a break when William Nylander was called for delay of game for sending the puck over the glass as he charged toward the Canucks zone.

Boeser sent a blast from near the blue line through traffic in front of the net, and Horvat tipped it in past Andersen to tie it.

Boeser got another on the go-ahead goal, picking up the puck off a Toronto stick deep in the Leafs’ zone and firing a shot at Andersen. The goalie made the stop, but Miller got to the rebound and scored.
