Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Scores goal in loss
Bunting scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's Game 1 defeat to the Panthers.
Bunting brought his four-game pointless streak to an end with Tuesday's marker. After returning from his three-game suspension, the Ontario native spent an additional game watching from the sidelines as a healthy scratch. As such, Bunting is far from a lock for the lineup even after scoring in Game 1.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Plays in Game 6 win
Bunting (healthy scratch) played 16:21 in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Lightning in Game 6.
Bunting slotted back into the top six and also saw 1:37 on the power play. He laid two hits and fired one shot. Bunting did a solid job keeping his cool and will need to do more of that in Round 2 once the Leafs know their opponent. One of the Bruins or Panthers will emerge as Toronto's combatant after Sunday's Game 7 matchup.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Will be scratched Thursday
Although Bunting is eligible to return from his three-game suspension, Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe won't use him in Game 5 against Tampa Bay on Thursday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.
After the Maple Leafs dropped Game 1 with Bunting in the lineup, they won three straight contests during his suspension. Keefe presumably doesn't want to disrupt a winning lineup, but the coach does plan to put Bunting back in eventually. The 27-year-old had 23 goals and 49 points in 82 regular-season outings....

Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Eligible to return Thursday
Bunting has served his three-game suspension and will be available for Game 5 against the Lightning on Thursday.
Bunting should return to his spot on the first line alongside Auston Matthews and Mitchell Marner despite having scored just once in his last eight contests. Still, the emergence of Matthew Knies could factor into the team's decision on whether or not to put Bunting back in that spot on the top line.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Given three-game suspension
Bunting was handed a three-game suspension by the NHL on Wednesday for an illegal check to the head and interference against Tampa Bay's Erik Cernak during Game 1 on Tuesday.
The incident occurred late in the second period, and Bunting was given a match penalty as a result of the play. The Leafs forward will be eligible to return for Game 5 on April 27, provided that contest is necessary. While Bunting is out, Wayne Simmonds or Matthew Knies might draw into the lineup....

Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Still delivering in different role
Bunting scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 3-0 victory over the Senators.
Bunting hasn't been able to replicate his offensive success from last season (23 goals, 40 assists; 63 points), but his role has changed. Calle Jarnkrok has taken his spot alongside Auston Matthews, and Bunting has shuffled through several lines. Still, he has 22 goals this season and that's just one off his career mark (23) from last season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Second goal in 13 games
Bunting scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 6-2 win over Florida.
Bunting fired a shot from the slot on a 5-on-3 power play for his first goal in seven games and just his second in his last 13 (five points). He has struggled to find his footing offensively of late as he works to try to change his reputation. Bunting can still be pest and get under the skin of opponents, but he needs to find a way to keep officials from calling offsetting penalties on him, too. It's a work in progress.... See More ...

Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Dishes pair of assists
Bunting notched two assists, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.
Bunting ended up with a team-low 12:23 of ice time, but that was because coach Sheldon Keefe was able to balance out the minutes in a dominant win. The 27-year-old Bunting had helpers on goals by Timothy Liljegren and Auston Matthews. Over nine games in February, Bunting has registered four goals and three assists in his usual top-line role. He's at 42 points, 122 shots on net, 57 hits, 68 PIM and a plus-26 rating through 60 contests overall.... See More ... See Less

Bunting scored twice, including once on the power play, in a 5-1 win over Montreal on Saturday.
Bunting tied it 1-1 at 5:32 of the first period on the power play when he one-timed a pass from Auston Matthews at the top of the goal crease.

Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Earns power-play assist
Bunting produced a power-play assist in Friday's 3-0 win over the Blue Jackets.
The Leafs continue to expand Bunting's power-play role, for which he's averaging a career-high 2:01 of ice time with four goals and three assists. On the downside, he's registered a point in just five of 16 games in the new year, and one would expect better consistency from a top-line winger sharing the ice with elite talents John Tavares and Mitch Marner....

Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Tallies goal and assist in win
Bunting recorded a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-1 victory over the Capitals.
Bunting got Toronto on the board with a power-play goal early in the second period. He'd add an assist later in the frame on a Morgan Rielly tally. The two-point effort snapped a four-game scoreless skid for Bunting. The 27-year-old winger is up to 15 goals and 20 assists through 51 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Two-point effort Saturday
Bunting scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins.
With Auston Matthews back in the lineup and anchoring the top line, Bunting snapped a five-game point drought by banging home the game's opening goal early in the first period. He has three multi-point performances sandwiching his mini-slump, and as long as he's skating with Matthews, Bunting's always a threat for a big night. On the season, the 27-year-old has 14 goals and 31 points through 44 games.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Michael Bunting: Three points against St. Louis
Bunting scored two goals, one on the power play, and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Blues.
His second goal of the night was the one that forced OT, as Bunting scored the only tally of the third period on some tic-tac-toe passing by the Leafs with the man advantage. It's the 27-year-old's second three-point performance of the season, and over his last 17 games he's piled up an impressive nine goals and 19 points.... See More ... See Less

Bunting netted a pair of goals in a 6-2 win against Colorado on Saturday.
Bunting's first marker was scored on a Maple Leafs power play and proved to be the game-winner. The 27-year-old has contributed 11 goals and 26 points in 37 contests in 2022-23. He's been on quite the goal-scoring run lately, providing seven markers over his last nine games.... See More ... See Less
