Jack Campbell was ripped for five goals on 50 shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche. Up front, we'll note that Campbell was under heavy duress all evening long and it would never have been reasonable to expect perfection under these circumstances. That said, this was arguably Campbell's worst start of the season. He was working with a 4-1 lead until Cale Makar's goal late in the second period, then completely lost the narrative in the third period, yielding goals -- within two minutes of each other -- to Gabriel Landeskog and J.T. Compher. The latter score tied up the game. A little over one minute into the extra period, Campbell completed his personal collapse by allowing a Devon Toews winner. This was Campbell's second game of five-goals-allowed this season. The last came a week before Halloween. Fantasy managers shouldn't fret too much. As stinging as Saturday's performance might have been, Campbell has been fantastic for the vast bulk of the 2021-22 campaign. A Tuesday matchup with the Golden Knights shows next on Toronto's schedule.
