Backed by a brilliant performance by goaltender Jack Campbell, and the play of Michael Bunting, Alexander Kerfoot, and William Nylander, the Toronto Maple Leaves defeated the Anaheim Ducks 5-1 at the Honda Center on Sunday night to extend their road-win streak to seven games.

In the game, Campbell made 39 saves, while Bunting, Kerfoot, and ,Nylander each had a goal and an assist.

“Anytime you are winning in good stretches like this, it’s a lot of fun,” Kerfoot said. “Lots of energy coming to the rink every day and we’re playing good hockey, so we’ve just got to keep it up. The mood in the room is upbeat, everyone’s happy, so it’s really fun to be a part of,” Bunting said. “I think the confidence level is good. Everyone’s contributing now.”

Toronto can set a new record for the longest road-winning streak in team history when they play the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

“I thought Anaheim was definitely the better team in that first period, and we were able to regroup and find our game in the second,” said Toronto coach Sheldon Keefe said. “Anaheim really made it hard in the first period for us to get through the neutral zone.”

Meanwhile, Ducks coach Dallas Eakins said his team should have been more meticulous and avoided making unnecessary mistakes.

“We’re learning the lessons of how to win, and we’ve taken great strides this year, but tonight against an elite team like this, it goes to show you that the details of the game, not turning over pucks, changing at the right time, are critical to winning,” Eakins said. “You cannot let your foot off the gas, or be disinterested in the details, or you’re going to get stung.”
