Maple Leafs Stay Hot, Take Down Flyers (3-0)
The Maple Leafs shut out the Flyers on Wednesday night for their 6th win in 7 games. Despite Toronto missing the red-hot John Tavares due to a lower body injury, William Nylander stepped up with two goals as Jack Campbell held it down with 36 saves in his sixth career shutout.
After coming out of the gates slow at 2-4-1, the Maple Leaves now take sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Division at 8-5-1, trailing behind the 10-2-1 Panthers while maintaining a slight lead over the 7-5-2 Red Wings, who are on a 3-game win streak of their own.
