Back on track.
John Tavares had one and one while Willy Nylander notched four points (two goals, two assists) as the Leafs kicked off their five game homestand with an impressive 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders.
The big story from the game was Sheldon Keefe reuniting the Tavares/Nylander and Matthews/Marner combos. Furthermore, it must be an amazing feeling for Sheldon Keefe to have two lethal duos in his back pocket at his disposal whenever the well runs dry. And that was not the first time his line juggling ignited the offence this season.
Speaking of reunions, after a weekend trip to Vegas, Jay Rosehill was back in the mix today for the Tuesday edition of Leafs Morning Take. After getting back up to speed – including a brief breakdown of Saturday night’s loss in Montreal – we recapped another impressive victory for the Maple Leafs.
