Mitch Marner notched two assists to extend his point streak to 23 games and Ilya Samsonov made 28 stops for his second straight shutout as Toronto smoked Anaheim 7-0.
In fact, the Leafs, who extended their team point streak to 15 games (12-0-3), have now blanked their opponent in three of the past four outings. Furthermore, they haven’t lost in regulation since November 11th, a 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Hall of Fame Game.
Meantime, 12 different Leafs registered at least a point. Alex Kerfoot scored twice while Pierre Engvall tallied a goal and an assist in his return from a one-game suspension.
