The Canucks had last won at the ACC on Dec. 17, 2011, and came into the game 1-4-0 in their past five visits to Toronto.

Vancouver arrived on a two-game losing streak, having won just one of its last seven games (1-5-1) and three of its last 12 (2-9-1). The Canucks were outscored 55-28 over those 12 games and had been restricted to one goal or fewer in six of the 12.

Toronto had snapped a three-game slide with a 3-2 shootout win Thursday over San Jose. But going into Saturday night's contest, the Leafs had only won four of their last 11 (4-6-1).

Vancouver had been idle since a 5-0 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday that saw Anders Nilsson pulled in the third period. Markstrom started Saturday and, barring a bizarre goal that was negated by a coach's challenge, was sharp.

The Leafs had some excellent early scoring chances but were unable to beat Markstrom. At the other end, Jake Virtanen hit the post.

Leafs shuffle defence pairings ahead of first game back from five-day break .
