Auston Matthews has the most goals ever in a single season for the Toronto Maple Leafs — and the most in the NHL by an American-born player.

Matthews set the franchise record with his 55th goal in regulation Thursday night in Dallas, then scored No. 56 in overtime to break the American record and give the Maple Leafs a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars.

"This was Auston's night," coach Sheldon Keefe said. "It's much deserved and to finish it with an exclamation point."
  • BOXSCORE: Maple Leafs 4, Stars 3 (OT)

Matthews, who had tied Rick Vaive's 40-year-old Maple Leafs mark of 54 goals two games earlier, broke that with his one-timer from the bottom of the circle to the left of goalie Scott Wedgewood after taking a pass back from Mark Giordano on a power play for a 2-1 lead with 1:02 left in the second period.

"I just laid it there for him and he just pounded it," Giordano said.

The game-winner winner came when he took a pass from William Nylander and was able to swipe the puck around Wedgewood 2:10 into overtime.

The 56th goal surpassed Jimmy Carson and Kevin Stevens, at 55 each, for the most by a U.S.-born skater. It also was Matthews' 52nd career multi-goal game, passing Pat LaFontaine's 51 for the most by a American-born player before age 25.
