NHL On Tap: Maple Leafs visit Flames trying to extend point streak


Keep an eye on Toronto forward Auston Matthews, who has scored six points (three goals, three assists) in his past five games and has regained some velocity on his shot that was missing while he was dealing with a wrist injury earlier this season.


Jack Campbell made 31 saves in a 2-1 shootout win against the Winnipeg Jets on Friday and is 8-0-0 with a 1.35 goals-against average and a .951 save percentage this season and is expected to start Monday, when he can tie the longest winning streak by a Maple Leafs goalie, last achieved by Felix Potvin, who won nine straight games to start the 1993-94 season.


Washington made it seven in a row against New Jersey when Dmitry Orlov scored with 21 seconds left in overtime for a 2-1 win Friday.


Goaltending was supposed to be a big question mark for Washington, but Vitek Vanecek has been splendid of late and has won five of his past six starts.


Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy is 12-0-0 against the Red Wings in his NHL career after he made 25 saves Saturday, but Christopher Gibson will start Sunday.


The Panthers seek their sixth consecutive win after a 5-2 victory against the Blue Jackets on Saturday, when forward Alex Wennberg scored three goals for his first NHL hat trick.
