Scrivens gets shutout as Leafs beat Panthers 3-0
TORONTO 3, FLORIDA 0

By PAUL GEREFFI
Associated Press

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs are hoping to keep
things rolling on the road.



Ben Scrivens notched his second consecutive shutout, and Clarke
MacArthur and Nazem Kadri each had a goal and an assist to lead
the Maple Leafs to a 3-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Monday
night.



Phil Kessel also scored for the Maple Leafs, who won for the
sixth time in seven games. Toronto is off to its best road start
since opening 7-2-0 away from home during the 1940-41 season.



Scrivens, who got his first career shutout last Saturday in a
3-0 victory over Ottawa, stopped 37 shots.



"I said it two days ago, a shutout is a team stat, it's not
strictly a goaltender stat," Scrivens said. "The guys did a
great job killing penalties, blocking shots, making smart plays
at both the offensive and defensive blue lines and letting me
see the puck. So, much of the credit goes to them."



The Leafs beat the Panthers for the first time in seven games
dating to a 4-3 shootout win on Feb. 1, 2011.



"We don't want to get overly excited," MacArthur said. "It's
really early yet. We want to keep building. Our team is getting
better and better. Our goalies have been playing great. It's
something where it's a good feeling we're building something
here but we don't get too excited."



Jose Theodore made 30 saves for Florida, which lost its fifth
straight overall and sixth in the past seven at home. The
Panthers went 0-for-3 on the power play and are 0-for-15 over
the past five games, while giving up a power-play goal.



"Personally, I think our power play sucked the life out of us,"
Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said. "That's an area we have to
keep working on and have our special teams give us a boost
instead of going 0-for on the one side and giving up the big
goal on the other."



The Maple Leafs took a 1-0 lead on Kessel's goal with 2:56 to go
in the opening period. Kessel brought the puck along the boards
and sent a wrist shot high into the net.



Toronto went ahead 2-0 on a power-play goal by Nadri at 12:13 of
the second. Dion Phaneuf passed the puck from behind the net in
front to a wide open Kadri, whose shot beat Theodore on the
glove side.



The Leafs stretched it to 3-0 less than two minutes later. Kadri
passed the puck from the right side to MacArthur between the
circles and he rifled the puck past Theodore on the stick side
with 6:03 left in the period.



The Maple Leafs play four of their next six games on the road
and are being careful to not get overconfident.



"We're still very much a work in progress," Maple Leafs coach
Randy Carlyle said.



The Panthers didn't get a point after losing their last three
games in overtime.



"It's not fun, we need to be better, we know we need to be
better, the game plan's been put out there for us and we need to
go execute it. We're not executing it," Panthers defenseman
Brian Campbell said.



Notes: Kessel has all three of his goals and 10 of his 12 points
on the road this season. ... The Maple Leafs are 20-21 on
penalty kills over the last six games. ... Panthers F Kris
Versteeg missed his third straight game with an upper-body
injury.
