TORONTO (AP) Curtis McElhinney made 33 saves for his third shutout of the season and the Toronto Maple Leafs extended their club-record home winning streak to 12 straight games with a 4-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.
Andreas Johnsson scored his first NHL goal, and William Nylander, Kasperi Kapanen and Nazem Kadri also had goals for Toronto, which has four victories in a row following a four-game slide (0-2-2).
McElhinney, who picked up the eighth shutout of his career, got his second straight start and third consecutive win with Leafs No. 1 goalie Frederik Andersen still out after taking a blow to the head/neck area in a crease pileup on Wednesday against Dallas.
