The Toronto Maple Leafs were held scoreless for the first time in more than a year, the Winnipeg Jets suffered through a rare slow start and a pair of Boston Bruins earned respective milestones. Here are five things we learned in the NHL on Thursday night. Leafs experience unfamiliar feeling The Maple Leafs' offence has earned a reputation. Coming into Thursday night, only the New York Islanders (114) and Tampa Bay Lightning (113) had scored more goals than Toronto's 108. The Leafs were also level with the Winnipeg Jets in that regard. However, for the first time since Nov. 30, 2016, a Maple Leafs player was not on the scoresheet. The Calgary Flames shut out Toronto 3-0 on that night, and the Minnesota Wild finally ended the Leafs' 90-game scoring run with their 2-0 victory. Auston Matthews was out again with an upper-body injury, and while the Leafs were faring well in terms of results without their top scorer, the offence has been barren since he got
