TORONTO – The workload is rising again. And like the near entirety of last season, Jonathan Bernier and Torontos goaltending tandem is up to the task. Bernier turned down 40 Anaheim shots Tuesday night as the Leafs rolled to their sixth straight victory and 10th in the last 12 games (10-1-1). Despite the stunning string of success over the past month, head coach Randy Carlyle wisely noted that his team has slipped recently. Theyve allowed an average of 37 shots in the past nine games, but have had the goaltending and mighty offence to hold strong. Leaf goalies have combined for a superb .939 save percentage since Nov. 29. Bernier has carried that bulk of that workload, mustering a .936 mark himself in his last seven starts, yielding two or less in five of them. Obviously the shot totals got to get down, said Nazem Kadri following a 6-2 win over the West-leading Ducks, but the way Bernies been playing, hes got those so I dont think were too worried about that. Bernier did most of his damage in the early going. He turned down 30 of the 31 shots he faced over the first two periods, including a pair on Ryan Getzlaf on a late first period Ducks power play. Later, after the Leafs pounced for their second goal, he made a fine save on Ryan Kesler. He made some big stops for us early in the hockey game, Carlyle said. It seemed like wed weather a little bit of a storm, wed get a chance and wed score so it made us feel good about ourselves. And he was the main reason that we put ourselves in a position to win the hockey game. Berniers counterpart, Frederik Andersen didnt fare quite as well. Making his 19th straight start in goal, Andersen was pulled after the fourth Toronto goal, one that saw Kadri outwait Ducks defender Mark Fistric, before firing the puck into the upper reaches of the Anaheim cage. The Leafs would add two more goals after that, burying Anaheim in the third. Theyve scored in crazy bunches during the past month, scorching with 49 goals during the 12-game run (or more than four per game). Thats kept the recent slippage in overall performance in the background, but has Carlyle rightfully concerned no less. Now I feel that we are slipping, he said of the teams recent play, which has included wins over powerhouses from Detroit, L.A. and now Anaheim. We have to get back to that more energetic, more stop-and-go, more straight-line hockey. Carlyle felt his team lacked energy and a forceful forecheck against the Ducks, who often bullied their way to long stretches in the Toronto zone. But we won, said Carlyle, in a triumphant mood. Bernier, meanwhile, has turned things around after a so-so start to the season. Tuesdays 40-save performance pushed him up to a .922 save percentage after 22 starts, good for ninth-best among regular NHL starters. His .932 mark at even-strength is also back at the superb level he managed in his debut as a Leaf last season. The worst shot suppression team in the league a year ago, the Leafs are fourth from the bottom so far this year, yielding nearly 34 per game. Five Points 1. Killer Instinct The Leafs are an astounding 14-0-0 when they score first this season, one of only two teams with an unbeaten record (Montreal being the other). Toronto is also a coinciding 13-0-0 when leading after two periods. Up 2-1 after 40 minutes on Tuesday, the Leafs scored a pair in the first five minutes of the third; that highlight marker from Kadri and the first of David Booths Toronto tenure. I think were getting much better when we have the lead, said Bernier. We keep playing hard. And I think last year maybe we would stop playing and they would come with a lot of speed. There were times last year when we went into games with the lead in the third period when we didnt have that killer instinct that we have today, addedJoffrey Lupul, scoring his seventh of the year early into the middle period. The Leafs were actually 27-9-4 last year when they scored first – good for only 19th best overall – and 26-1-2 when leading after two periods. 2. Top Line Torontos top line has been a constant source of production on the power play all year, but has sputtered at even-strength over the past month, spending long stretches in the defensive zone. í think it starts in the offensive zone, Carlyle said before Tuesdays game. I think that, at times, theyve been a one-and-out [offence]. Theyre a rush line that has to try to develop more of a puck-possession game in the offensive zone. I think thats more important than anything. Its 200 feet away from their net. Theyve got to find ways to maybe stop up and not take the bad angle shot and get two guys caught or three guys caught. I think that theyre quality players that will find a way to do that, he concluded. I just think right now theyre in a little bit of a dry spell. And indeed, the trio of Phil Kessel, Tyler Bozak, and James van Riemdsyk had a much better night in that regard against the Ducks. The line came up with three of the six Toronto goals – including a pair at even-strength – sustaining more frequent stints in the offensive zone. Carlyle gave them lighter competition, however, matching the trio up against the Ducks youth-infused third unit of Andrew Cogliano, Rickard Rakell and Jakob Silfverberg. In my mind, they should have a good night if theyre playing up against the youth of Anaheim right now, said Carlyle. Kessel had two even-strength points in the victory, equaling the mark he had in the previous 11 games (minus empty-netters). The 27-year-old, who also led his team in possession against the Ducks, has six goals in the past eight games and leads the Leafs with 34 points in 31 games. 3. Studying Getzlaf Drafted by the Ducks in 2009, Peter Holland only suited up in 29 games with the club, but he got a brief, up-close look at Ryan Getzlaf. Hes continued to study Anaheims captain since then, even watching video of about five of his games so far this year. Just trying to take little bits and pieces from his game and try to incorporate it into my own, says Holland. His patience with the puck is top of the league, for sure. He just seems to know where the quiet areas of the ice are and he can hold onto the puck for a couple extra seconds before he makes a pass. The game slows down for him. Holland says Getzlafs presence on the ice is incredible and hes doing what he can to work some of the aforementioned tactics into his own game. Im trying to, yeah, said the 24-year-old. Its a lot easier said than done obviously, but just watching the way he handles the puck and distributes it is something special to be honest. Holland, who had an assist in the victory, split the matchup against Getzlafs line on Tuesday night – Kadris line being the other – spending the other half of the evening opposite the equally challenging unit fronted by Ryan Kesler. 4. Home Ice The Leafs now have a league-high 14 wins at home – while playing the most games – taking full advantage of a comfy early schedule. Theyll play 17 of their next 22 on the road though, a huge mountain to climb with the World Juniors coming to the ACC for the latter stages of December. Its going to be a different challenge, for sure, said Lupul. Its weird, at the start of the year it seemed we were more comfortable playing on the road than at home and now we obviously have a good thing going here. Toronto has a plus-17 goal differential at home versus a plus-4 mark in just 10 games on the road. 5. 100 Morgan Rielly crossed the 100-game plateau last week in Detroit, a feat celebrated by his teammates. Its obviously a pretty cool moment, he said later of the recognition. Riellys sophomore season hasnt been all ups though. Hes endured the predictable swings of a young defender in the league. But of late, the 20-year-old has been more actively involved in the play, finding something of a groove. I think so, he agreed. [But] I think its just a matter of trying to be consistent. Ive had times where I think Ive played well and Ive been happy with it and I think the coaches have been happy with it as well. But its about doing that every night. You cant do it in spurts, youve got to be consistent and thats what Ive got to work on. For Rielly, the key to that consistency is the asset that made him a top-5 pick: his skating. I think youve got to be involved in the play and youve got to try to make a difference, he said. You cant be a passenger. Youve got to help this team in each way you can, whether its carrying the puck, whether its playing defence, blocking point shots; youve just got to do what you can and try to help the team. Rielly played more than 21 minutes against the Ducks. He and partner, Stephane Robidas, struggled at times with the size and strength of their Western Conference opponents though.

MILWAUKEE -- The end of a seven-game losing streak lifted the spirits of the Milwaukee Brewers. An 11-2 win Sunday over the St. Louis Cardinals gave manager Ron Roenickes team a one-game lead in the NL Central at the All-Star break. A team that has also had to cope with the death of shortstop Jean Seguras 9-month-old son now gets a breather for a few days. With Segura home on bereavement leave, Elian Herrera had a career-best five hits a day after being called up from the minors to take Seguras roster spot. The offence tied a season high with 19 hits to back a strong seven-inning outing by starter Wily Peralta. "Somebody had to step up. ... Thats huge for us, for everybody. It lets us go into the break like that and still in first place," said Peralta (10-6), who allowed three hits and struck out five before departing after seven innings because of a minor leg cramp. Like Segura, Peralta is from the Dominican Republic. The pitcher was heading home for the break, and he was planning to text Roenicke to let him know how Segura was doing. The morning started with the Brewers organization holding its annual Family Day outing, when players and coaches can bring their children to the ballpark. Players were smiling alongside their sons and daughters on a sunny afternoon, and Roenicke hoped the day would create a diversion from the teams roughest patch of the season. All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy said he thought the family time possibly helped the squad. "But it doesnt matter if youre winning or losing whenever youre with your family," Lucroy said. "It is a business and it is a job we have to perform, but ultimately the goal is to provide for our family, and family is most important." Peralta allowed just three singles and gave up his only run after Kolten Wong reached first on a passed ball despite striking out. Wong eventually scored on Matt Adams groundout. Peralta got a defensive boost with a runner on base in the fifth when left fielder Khris Davis made an over-the-shoulder catch on Jon Jays fly to the warning track with a man on first. "I had to step in like an extra gear ... justt kind of a lucky play," Davis said.dddddddddddd "A big play with the runner on first, hes probably going to score." Davis hit his team-high 15th homer in the bottom of the fifth for a 5-1 lead. For the Cardinals, a frustrated Carlos Martinez (2-4) allowed four runs in four innings. Making his seventh career start, Martinez gave up three walks and a balk while also hitting Carlos Gomez with a pitch in the fourth. Gomez then scored on Scooter Gennetts two-out, two-run double down the left-field line for a 4-1 lead. Martinez flicked his head back in frustration as he watched the ball take a tricky carom off the side wall on outfielder Matt Holliday. An inning earlier, Martinez tossed his bat behind his back in the direction of home plate after grounding out, leading umpire Jeff Nelson to raise his arms and stare at the 22-year-old pitcher for a few seconds. "I tried to throw the bat to the ground. I dont know if it was emotion," Martinez said through an interpreter. "I went to the umpire and said I was sorry. It was just frustration." Manager Mike Matheny said Martinez was having a tough time "finding anything." "Hes trying to harness his emotions a little bit, which will harness his control," Matheny said. "It was a rough day for him. Its one of those learning points." Milwaukee added three runs off the Cardinals bullpen to stretch the lead to 8-1 in a sixth-inning burst started by Herreras double. The Brewers are in first place at the All-Star break for just the fourth time in franchise history. NOTES: Matheny said ace Adam Wainwright could pitch in Tuesdays All-Star game despite going seven innings in Saturdays win over Milwaukee. Tuesday would be scheduled to throw in between starts. Matheny will manage the National League. ... Gennett tied a career high with three hits. ... Matheny said he wasnt sure yet how he would set up the Cardinals rotation after the All-Star break. St. Louis hosts the Dodgers on Friday. ... Milwaukee doesnt plan to make any changes in its rotation, meaning Kyle Lohse (9-4) would get the start Friday in Washington.
