Matthews, Campbell lead Maple Leafs past Canadiens

TORONTO — Jack Campbell made 32 saves for his franchise-record 10th straight victory as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 on Wednesday.

Auston Matthews, with his NHL-best 28th of the season, and Zach Hyman each had a goal and an assist for Toronto (27-10-3), while T.J. Brodie scored his first in blue and white.

The Leafs, who have won five straight and are 8-0-1 over their last nine, now lead the Winnipeg Jets by seven points atop the Canadian-based North Division.

Toronto's No. 1 crease option with Frederik Andersen continuing to work through a lower-body injury, Campbell's win streak surpasses the previous record he shared with Felix Potvin (1993-94), Jacques Plante (1970-71) and John Ross Roach (1924-25).
