With flashes of 2013 in their heads, the Toronto Maple Leafs recovered after blowing a 4-1 third-period lead thanks to - who else? - Auston Matthews.

The 2016 first-overall pick chipped in his second goal of the game with 1:20 left in overtime to give the Maple Leafs a 5-4 win over the Detroit Red Wings in the Centennial Classic.

For Matthews, the two-goal output gives him 20 on the season, pushing him ahead of Patrik Laine in the rookie goals race and putting him into a tie with Jeff Carter for the second-most league-wide.

The goal was Matthews' first overtime winner in the NHL, and gives Toronto five straight win
