Nylander, Kase provide the offence as Campbell backs Leafs in blanking of Flyers

William Nylander scored twice, Jack Campbell stopped 36 shots for his second shutout of the season, and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Ondrej Kase also scored and Auston Matthews had a pair of assists for the Maple Leafs, who were without injured captain John Tavares and won for the sixth time in seven games. Campbell got his sixth career shutout.

Carter Hart finished with 30 saves for the Flyers.

Nylander made it 1-0 with 8:49 left in the second period on a fluke goal. The puck deflected off his right toe and under Hart’s right arm after Jake Muzzin’s pass went off defenceman Travis Sanheim’s stick and high into the air near the crease. It originally was ruled no goal by the officials due to a kicking motion but overturned after video review.
