Keys to Winning against Arizona:

  1. Attack the Defence
    1. Young defence and a lot of injuries on the backend. Forecheck hard and furious
  2. William Nylander
    1. It’s time for the scoring drought to end. If it happens it’s going to be now
  3. Powerplay
    1. Been struggling for a while. Gotta get it going again to make the Leafs dangerous
