Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jack Campbell (36) handles the puck against the Philadelphia Flyers during the second period at Wells Fargo Center.

And just to be sure their No. 1 netminder could get in a groove in his first game since March 8, the Leafs didn’t have much interest in beating the Philadelphia Flyers until pulling away in the third period.

The final 20 minutes featured Auston Matthews’ 51st goal as Toronto kicked off a four-game trip with its fourth win in a row, beating the Flyers 6-3 at the Wells Fargo Center.

Coach Sheldon Keefe rightfully had some post-game praise for Campbell, who made 29 saves.

For the rest of the Leafs? Not so much.

“He just looked like Jack,” Keefe said of his netminder. “I love the way he played. That first period especially, the first 10 minutes or so, was a disaster by us in front of him.

“That save he made early in the game (a glove on Morgan Frost), that’s Jack at his best. It was good to see and great to have him back.”
