    (SportsNetwork. Jerome Baker Dolphins Jersey .com) -  The Toronto Maple Leafs will try to play spoiler as the Los Angeles Kings will try to match their longest winning streak in over four years in Thursdays battle at Staples Center. Watch the Kings vs. Maple Leafs live tonight on TSN starting at 10:30pm et/7:30pm pt. Toronto hopes to rebound after having a three-game winning streak halted in its last outing. The Maple Leafs were pounded 6-2 by the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, losing one night after beginning a five-game road trip with a 3-1 win in Anaheim. Jake Gardiner registered both Toronto tallies in Tuesdays loss, while James Reimer allowed all six goals on 48 shots for the Leafs. "I thought we did a lot of things that gave them a lot of opportunities, specifically turning the puck over," said Toronto head coach Randy Carlyle. Toronto, which fell to 13-13-7 as the road club this season, is still in second place in the Atlantic Division. The Leafs are one point ahead of Montreal and three in front of fourth-place Tampa Bay. L.A. has won two straight and three of the last four meetings against the Maple Leafs overall, but Toronto has claimed the past two encounters at Staples Center. The Kings have won eight games in a row and seven of those victories have come after the Olympic break. The time off in February apparently was productive for Los Angeles, which had dropped nine of 11 games before the league went on hiatus for the Sochi Olympics. Another victory tonight would give L.A. its first nine-game winning streak since Jan. 21-Feb. 6, 2010, but a former teammate could prevent that from happening as Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier gets set to make his return to the Staples Center. Bernier, who served primarily as Jonathan Quicks backup during his time with the Kings, was dealt to Toronto last summer in exchange for forward Matt Frattin, goaltender Ben Scrivens and a second-round draft pick. Frattin and Scrivens have since been traded by L.A., while Bernier is having a terrific debut season with the Leafs, going 25-16-7 with a 2.59 goals against average and .926 save percentage in 49 games. Originally a first-round pick of Los Angeles in the 2006 draft, Bernier had a 29-20-6 career record with six shutouts and a 2.36 GAA in 62 games with the Kings. He expects to get the start tonight and has a chance to end the Kings recent hot streak. Thanks to the recent surge, the Kings are sitting comfortably in third place in the Pacific Division, nine points ahead of Phoenix for the last of the divisions three automatic bids to the playoffs. L.A. is still nine points behind San Jose for second place and 11 points behind Anaheim for the top spot. The Kings are back home on Thursday after a perfect three-game road trip. Los Angeles is beginning a five-game homestand tonight and is 19-10-3 at Staples Center this season. The club capped its recent swing with Mondays 3-2 regulation win at Calgary. Anze Kopitar scored the eventual winner in the third period as Los Angeles survived a late push from the Flames to pick up the win at the Saddledome. Trevor Lewis and Justin Williams scored for the Kings, while Martin Jones made 24 saves in the win. "Good way to finish off the trip. We did what we wanted," said Los Angeles head coach Darryl Sutter. "If you score three on the road you should win the hockey game." Quick expects to get the start for L.A. on Thursday. The Kings No. 1 backstop is 2-1-0 with a 2.62 goals against average and .910 save percentage in three career games against the Maple Leafs. Kings forward Jordan Nolan is eligible to return tonight after sitting out the last game due to a suspension. Nolan earned the one-game ban for a sucker punch on Edmonton Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu on Sunday. Mike Gesicki Jersey . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Dan Marino Dolphins Jersey . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and listen on TSN 690. The Canadiens have won three in a row and four of their last five games and recently put the finishing touches on a 3-1-0 road trip.BERLIN - Patrick Herrmann scored two goals and set up another for Borussia Moenchengladbach to underline its strong start to the Bundesliga with a 3-1 win over previously undefeated Hoffenheim on Sunday.Andre Hahn opened the scoring with a volley from Herrmanns cutback after a flowing team move in the 12th minute.Anthony Modeste equalized after a defensive lapse in the 30th, but Hahn returned the earlier favour and crossed for Herrmann to restore Gladbachs lead two minutes later.Herrmann claimed his second in the 52nd, pouncing on the rebound after Hoffenheim goalkeeper spilled Havard Nordtveits free kick.It could have been worse for Hoffenheim as Raffael also hit the crossbar.Moenchengladbach equaled the club record of 17 competitive games unbeaten set by the 1970-71 team coached by Hennes Weisweiler.Of course Im satisfied. It was fully deserved. Now we have 20 points. Its fantastic, said Gladbach coach Lucien Favre, who was celebrated by fans on his 57th birthday. Were not going to rest on it though, but keep working hard to be successful in future.Favres side stayed four points behind leader Bayern Munich, trailing second-placed Wolfsburg on goal difference. Bayern and Gladbach are the only remaining unbeaten sides.Promoted Paderborn moved seventh with a 3-1 win over visiting Hertha BBerlin later Sunday. Mike Gesicki Dolphins Jersey. Marvin Bakalorz put the home side ahead in the 28th, only for Solomon Kalou to equalize with a powerful header under the crossbar from Marcel Ndjengs cross in the 41st.But Elias Kachunga restored Paderborns lead with a glancing header to Jens Wemmers cross in the 53rd and Alban Mehas long-range strike secured the win in the 76th.Its fun to see how the whole of Paderborn is still in euphoria, Paderborn coach Andre Breitenreiter said.Breitenreiter said the club had learned from Eintracht Braunschweig and Greuther Fuerth, sides which struggled in the Bundesliga after earning promotion in the last couple of seasons.We saw that they had trouble scoring goals and so we reinforced the squad accordingly, Breitenreiter said. I think thats paying off now.Also Sunday, Vladimir Daridas 51st-minute penalty was enough for Freiburg to beat Cologne 1-0 for the visitors first win of the season.Im not looking at the table. Im concentrating only on our team. Well see at the end of the season if its enough, said Freiburg coach Christian Streich, whose side moved into the relegation playoff place, one point above bottom sides Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen.Only goal difference was keeping Dortmund, the 2011 and 2012 champion, above Bremen after 10 games.
