NHL: Streaking Marner pushing Leafs

Forward Mitch Marner said the Toronto Maple Leafs are focussed on bettering their work ethic and compete level in the second part of the NHL season.

The Leafs, 15/2 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, have won six straight games with Marner scoring in the last eight.

Marner hits form

Against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday, 24-year-old Marner registered twice including the game-winning-goal in overtime to record the longest goal-scoring streak since John Anderson hit 10 in a row during 1984/85.

With 10 goals in the eight-game streak, Marner has improved his season production to 40 points (16 goals, 24 assists) in 34 games.

The winger was drafted fourth-overall by Toronto in the 2015 NHL draft, and since has amassed 398 points (119 goals, 279 assists) in 389 regular season games.
