Hutchinson stopped 33 shots for his first shutout in almost a year, and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the New York Islanders 3-0 Saturday night to push their point streak to 10 games.

Andersen has played 16 of the club's 19 games since November 20 (including both ends of a back-to-back in early December), and is 12-3-1, with a 2.58 GAA and.920 save %.

It was Hutchinson's third-straight win, following a 4-1 victory over Detroit on December 21 and a 5-4 overtime triumph in New Jersey on December 27, both part of Toronto's point streak.

The Canadian singer was spotted at the Toronto Maple Leafs game on Saturday night supporting close friend Auston Matthews.

The Jets have one win in their last five games (1-3-1) and have lost five straight (0-4-1) at home. The Maple Leafs have played terrifically recently, winning four of their last five games, only losing to the New York Rangers. Mathew Barzal leads the Isles in goals (16) and points (34) and was named to the National Hockey League all-star game for a second straight season.

Kerfoot scored a 1-0 lead in less than 6 minutes after a Tavares pass. Toronto made it 2-0 with a 30.2 second lead in the opening phase when Matthews hit the puck on the right post before trickling out to Nylander, who swept him out of the blue color inside.




Hutchinson made a glove stop on Mathew Barzal's wrist attempt at 9:59 of the third period.

"Are you frustrated? You are a little because you know you played a solid game", said Islanders head coach Barry Trotz.

Hyman added an empty-net goal with 2:08 left to play. After defenseman Justin Holl dug the puck out of the boards behind Toronto's goal, he passed to Matthews who sent it over to Marner, who in turn found a streaking Hyman. William Nylander has scored eight goals over the last 10 games for Toronto.

Notes: Injured Maple Leafs forwards Andreas Johnsson (leg) and Trevor Moore (shoulder) were both wearing non-contact sweaters but participated in Saturday's morning skate.
