Spaling, Matthias team up to provide immediate dig to Maple Leafs fans

Highly fortuitous returns.

As fate would have it, Toronto Maple Leafs cast-offs Nick Spaling and Shawn Matthias scored mere moments apart into their respective debuts with the San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche, who just happen to be combatants Wednesday night.

Spaling, who scored just the one time in 35 games with the Maple Leafs, got his second of the season with a rocket fired on his first shift with the club.

Matthias answered with his second of the season, cleaning up the crease roughly 10 minutes later, and ensuring that ex-Leafs would account for all the goal-scoring in the period.

Spaling was considered a throw-in along with defenseman Roman Polak in a deal that saw the Leafs add a pair of second-round picks to their collection of draft tickets.

Matthias was had for a fourth-round pick and a prospect.
