Twice on Monday night the Toronto Maple Leafs overcame two goal deficits to the Chicago Blackhawks, and the second time it was good enough to force an overtime period between the two teams.

Much like the three previous periods, the overtime was an exciting back and forth affair with both teams creating chances on either end of the ice, but it was Leafs' forward Auston Matthews who played the role of hero.

Matthews beat goaltender Anton Forsberg with a perfect shot that went top shelf, over Forsbergs shoulder and out of reach of his glove. Needless to say after an overtime winner from a player many view as the future of the franchise, the Toronto crowd went wild.
