Apr 8 - 9:58 PM

Curtis McElhinney allowed four goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.

McElhinney got almost no goal-support in this one, as the Leafs only got on the board with less than two minutes remaining in the game. McElhinney now owns a 7-7-2 record with a 2.65 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage.
Apr 4 - 10:33 PM

Curtis McElhinney will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Apr 3 - 8:16 PM

Curtis McElhinney stopped 25 of 27 shots in a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Curtis McElhinney's best save of the night came when he reached back and took the puck right off the goal line to rob Reilly Smith of a sure goal in tight. McElhinney will be forced into a bit more action with Frederik Andersen sidelined with an upper-body injury but he played well in his first start since the injury to Andersen. The win improves his record to 7-6-2 on the year with a 2.57 goals against average and an impressive .921 save percentage.

McElhinney gave up three goals Saturday night on 22 shots after Andersen went 14 of 16. Both goalies had a nearly identical save percentage in the loss. McElhinney’s .864 was slightly worse than Andersen’s .875, but neither of them will be bragging about the performance.
Mar 26 - 12:06 AM

Curtis McElhinney stopped 30 of 32 shots in Toronto's 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

McElhinney gave up the game's first goal to John Moore, but his team responded by scoring the next three goals. The Maple Leafs have now rattled off three consecutive victories. Toronto sits in third place in the Atlantic Division (three points ahead of Boston). McElhinney has a 6-5-2 record with a 2.52 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season.
Mar 23 - 10:45 PM

Curtis McElhinney is expected to be in net against the Devils on Thursday.

Mar 22 - 12:59 PM

Curtis McElhinney stopped 31 of 35 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

The Leafs looked gassed in this one, not really giving McElhinney much of a chance to get anything going. The backup netminder has lost 4 of his 7 games this season in goal for the Leafs and might only see a couple of more starts in goal the rest of the season with the Leafs pushing for a playoff spot. His record drops to 5-5-2 on the year with a 2.38 goals against average and .927 save percentage.
Mar 4 - 1:08 AM
