The Toronto Maple Leafs won their sixth game in a row on Tuesday as they beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-2.
That’s their first six-game winning streak since January 2006, according to The Globe & Mail’s James Mirtle. The Maple Leafs also ruined Semyon Varlamov‘s bid to set an Avalanche franchise record for consecutive games started without a regulation loss; in fact, they managed to get Varlamov pulled from the Avs net as they scored three goals on 10 shots against the Russian standout.
The Maple Leafs improved to 27-20-5 on the season as they finish the week with two more road games against West teams. Colorado saw a four-game winning streak end as they fell to 31-13-5 in 2013-14.
