compiled from staff and news reports

Michael Leighton is showing the skeptics who have doubted him for years that he is and can be a solid championship goaltender.

Leighton stopped 30 shots and recorded his second straight shutout, and the Philadelphia Flyers beat Montreal Canadiens 3-0 on Tuesday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.

Leighton’s season was thought to be over once he went down with an ankle injury in mid-March. Currently, Leighton has the Flyers two wins away from their first Stanley Cup finals appearance since 1997.

Michael Leighton is the first Philadelphia goalie to record consecutive playoff shutouts since Bernie Parent in 1975. His shutout streak of 165:50 is the second-longest in team history behind Brian Boucher’s 184:45 in its run to the Eastern finals in 2000.

Philadelphia has won six straight postseason games. They’ve scored 13 straight goals in the postseason since trailing 3-0 in Game 7 against Boston in the East semifinals. Leighton has basically been unbeatable since taking over in Game 5 of the semifinals for the injured Brian Boucher.
