Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews got back in action Saturday against the Boston Bruins.

He scored a goal and added three shots in over 20 minutes of ice time during the 4-3 loss to Boston.

Matthews missed two games due to an undisclosed injury. The Maple Leafs defeated the Nashville Predators and lost to the Detroit Red Wings without him in the lineup.

The 25-year-old entered Saturday with 20 goals and 47 points in 41 games this season after winning the 2022 Hart Trophy.

Maple Leafs forwards Pontus Holmberg and Bobby McMann missed the team's morning skate due to illness and didn't suit up for the evening's contest.
