Everything’s coming up Matthews!

Auston Matthews wins it for the Maple Leafs in overtime as time was winding down in the Centennial Classic.

Nice little week for Auston Matthews.

On Monday, he registered a goal and an assist in a win over Florida. On Tuesday, he did the same in a win over Tampa Bay. Yesterday, he scored a pair of goals, including the OT winner, in a Centennial Classic victory over Detroit.

Today? He’s the NHL’s first star of the week.

All told, the Toronto rookie finished his three-game stretch with four goals and six points, pushing him into the freshman lead with 20 tallies -- passing Winnipeg sniper Patrik Laine in the process -- and points, with 32.

Matthews scored first star honors ahead of Rangers forward Chris Kreider (2nd), and Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury (3rd).
