Oh shoot, Marner meeting great expectations for the Maple Leafs

How bad were the Flames in Tuesday's early stages against the Maple Leafs?

Toronto coach Sheldon Keefe said Tuesday that Campbell will be sidelined for "weeks".

Marner, who also had an assist, scored his fifth goal of the season at 12:14 on a shot from the right circle just three minutes after Johnny Gaudreau had tied the game for the Flames.

"When you see Mitch Marner, John Tavares, Auston Matthews, William Nylander on the ice every day, working on different things and spending their off-season trying to add different layers ... if you're a player who is not at their level, you have no excuses, you have to keep pushing and working".

They went to bed on Tuesday night looking forward to a full day off on Wednesday, and also buoyed by the fact their record of 6-2-0 has given them 12 points, the most in the National Hockey League.

Wayne Simmonds and Travis Boyd scored Toronto's other goals. Calgary drew even at 3-3 in the third on Gaudreau's second goal of the game, but Marner's quick release on a Matthews pass from the boards restored Toronto's lead. "I think, generally, you're not going to see a lot of three or four-goal games, unless you get empty-net goals or something like that".

The Maple Leafs are finding ways to win in a division expected to be extremely competitive this season. "We will continue to get him involved when we can".

The Maple Leafs lost goaltender Aaron Dell to the waiver wire last week.

Campbell's leg was injured in the final minute of Sunday's 3-2 win over the Flames when Matthew Tkachuk fell on him in a goal-mouth scrum.
