Jack Campbell joins elite company in Maple Leafs history

He's placed himself into the team record books.

The Toronto Maple Leafs were able to rebound from their disappointing 5-1 loss against the Los Angeles Kings Monday night at Scotiabank Arena, earning a 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers last night at Wells Fargo Center in the City of Brotherly Love. 

Goaltender Jack Campbell turned in one of his finer performances of the season, stopping all 36 shots that he faced to earn the shutout, his second of the month in November. And in doing so, he's written himself into the team record books. 

Jack Campbell turned aside all 36 shots he faced to earn his fourth shutout in his 40th game in a Maple Leafs uniform. Only six goaltenders in franchise history had more at that stage (or fewer GP) with the club: Lorne Chabot (10), Ed Chadwick (6), Ed Belfour (5), Bruce Gamble (5), Al Rollins (5) and Paul Bibeault (5).

Meanwhile, Campbell had plenty to say about his teammate William Nylander, who tallied twice in the win. 

“He’s got some fire in his belly,” said Campbell. “He is moving out there and doing everything we could possibly ask. He’s got a heck of a release, and it’s tricky. He still fools me a lot. So we’re lucky to have him on our side.”

Campbell has won five of his last six starts, improving his record to 7-3-1 so far on the season with a 1.90 goals against average and .936 save percentage.
