With the score tied late in the third period Tyler Flowers Jersey , Auston Matthews saw an opening and got himself in position. And when he got the puck from William Nylander, he was able to knock in the winning goal.

Matthews deflected Nylander’s pass in front with just under four minutes remaining to lift the playoff-bound Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-4 victory over the New York Islanders on Friday night.

”Very good forecheck by (Zach) Hyman to free the puck up and I was able to sneak in there backdoor,” Matthews said. ”It was good for (Nylander) to see that play and make it, so great for both those guys to create space, get the puck and I just tapped it.”

It was Matthews’ 31st goal of the season and broke the fourth tie of the game.

”A good two points for us,” he said. ”Probably not a fun game for coaches but more a fun game for the players.”

Mitch Marner and Nazem Kadri each had a goal and an assist, and Nikita Zaitsev and James van Riemsdyk also scored for Toronto. Frederik Andersen stopped 29 shots to help the Maple Leafs win for the eighth time in 10 games and extend a franchise record with their 47th win.

Toronto, which clinched a postseason berth when Florida lost in overtime at Ottawa on Thursday night, is all but locked into third place in the Atlantic Division.

”It’s nice that we’ve clinched and now we just want to get ready and focused for the playoffs,” Nylander said.

Anthony Beauvillier had a goal and an assist, and Johnny Boychuk, Brock Nelson and John Tavares also scored for the Islanders Cheap Lamar Jackson Jersey , who lost for the 15th time in 18 games (3-11-4). Jordan Eberle had two assists and Christopher Gibson finished with 27 saves.

”It was a good hockey game,” Islanders coach Doug Weight said. ”It was exciting and really, for a 5-4 game it was pretty well-played. … Yeah, a little bit of puck luck would be nice. It was a heck of a game. Guys battled but just fell short.”

Van Riemsdyk gave the Maple Leafs their first lead of the game – at 4-3 – as he put in the rebound for his 36th at 2:01 of the third.

Tavares tied it for the fourth time as he beat Andersen from the right doorstep for his 34th at 6:28. Tavares now has 80 points, reaching that number for the first time since he had 86 in 2014-15.

”We didn’t want the puck in our net as much as it was tonight,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. ”That’s the way it went and we just had to find a way to keep grinding.”

Trailing 2-1 after one period, the Maple Leafs tied the score at 7:52 of the second as Zaitsev’s pass deflected off Islanders forward Mathew Barzal’s stick and past Gibson for the defenseman’s fifth.

Nelson put New York back in front on an odd-man rush as he got a pass across the slot from Andrew Ladd and beat Andersen from the right faceoff dot for his 19th with 9:15 left.

Marner then tied it again as he deflected Jake Gardiner’s shot in front for his 22nd with 2:42 to go in the second.

Beauvillier got the Islanders on the scoreboard with just under eight minutes remaining in the first. Eberle got the puck near the left side of the goal, skated to the corner and sent a pass in front to Beauvillier, who put it past Andersen for his 18th. The goal withstood a Maple Leafs challenge for goalie interference.

Toronto tied it with 3:38 left, just 7 seconds after Anders Lee was whistled for slashing, as Kadri tipped the puck out of the air in front off a pass from Marner for his 31st.

Boychuk put the Islanders back in front on a power play with 1:26 to go in the opening period as he got a pass from Beauvillier near the blue line and sent a one-timer through traffic past Andersen for his sixth.

NOTES: Marner has five goals and 11 assists during his points streak. … Kadri has eight goals and nine points in his last 12 games. … The Maple Leafs swept the three-game season series. … Zaitsev’s goal marked the fourth straight game an Islanders player deflected the puck into his own net. Adam Pelech did it Saturday against the Blackhawks, and Brandon Davidson in each of the last two – against Florida on Monday and at Ottawa on Tuesday. … Lee had an assist on Tavares’ goal Carlton Davis Jersey Buccaneers , giving him a career-high 22 this season. He also has career highs with 39 goals and 61 points.

Follow Vin Cherwoo at The Tennessee Titans wanted to wrap up their offseason with a trip to Fort Campbell.

With soldiers at the Army post busy right now, the NFL team spent the final session of minicamp with police officers.

The Titans made the very short trip to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department's training center near the team's headquarters and learned about how officers are trained , use of force and gun safety .

"We thought that we would mix some gun safety in with interaction with the police department," coach Mike Vrabel said Thursday.

"There was a lot of chiefs, there was 30 police officers, there was cadets. Our guys got to work one-on-one, and those guys were the coaches for the day. We tried to listen and pay attention the best we could, and had a little fun along the way."

The Titans also shot guns on the range, a first for Vrabel. The coach said the Titans met with NFL officials Wednesday going over league policies, which include no firearms allowed at a team's building, parking lot or hotel. Vrabel said no, this visit was not tied to the national anthem.

"This is about us being with the police officers in our community and gun safety Youth Jason McCourty Jersey ," Vrabel said.

The Titans wrapped up the session, returned to the team's building and then players scattered for their last break before reporting for training camp July 25.

Quarterbacks, injured players and rookies will be due back July 22.

Even with the offseason ending, the Titans finished some business Thursday afternoon by signing rookie linebacker Harold Landry to his contract to wrap up their four-man draft class. Landry, a popular choice to go in the first round of many mock drafts, fell to No. 41 where the Titans traded up to select him .

The linebacker ranked second in school history at Boston College with 26 sacks and second with 47陆 tackles for loss.

Vrabel is expecting everyone under contract to be at training camp, though Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan is the only question mark with Landry's contract finished. Lewan worked out with the Titans during most of the offseason program, then skipped this week's mandatory minicamp wanting a new contract .

"I would expect all players, all coaches, and all personnel staff to be here under contract," Vrabel said of Lewan. "But, do I think he will? I have no idea."

Only right tackle Jack Conklin is not expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Conklin is recovering from surgery to repair a torn left ACL hurt in the Titans' divisional playoff loss at New England.

Wide receivers Rishard Matthews Cardinals Elite Jerseys , who watched the offseason sessions open to reporters, and Corey Davis, limited over the past week, are expected to be available.

Vrabel reminded the Titans before they left to get as much personal business handled before training camp as possible. He also told them about the countdown clock he keeps on his phone.

"We're 87 days from our first game," the first-time head coach said. "I think that starts to put things in perspective, and when I say that I get excited to be in this position. 87 days from a real NFL football game. That was the first message, that we're that close."

Notes: The Titans had four players in minicamp and signed WR Brandon Shippen and CB Jarell Carter on Thursday. They waived WR Zach Pascal and CB Jeremy Boykins to clear roster space. Shippen came into the NFL as an undrafted free agent and has been with Miami, the Rams and Chiefs. Carter was undrafted out of Trinity International and spent two months on Arizona's practice squad last year.
