Tavares scored his 16th and 17th goals of the season in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Sharks. One of Tavares' goals was scored on the power play. The 28-year-old's other marker came on a wild sequence that saw Mitch Marner pick up a crazy assist, feeding Tavares for a tap-in goal only after fetching a new stick from the bench in the middle of the rush. Meanwhile, Toronto's big summer signing this past offseason now has 30 points in 26 games.
Tavares sniped his 15th goal of the season in Toronto's 6-0 win over Philadelphia on Saturday. You think this guy loves his new home? Tavares is on pace to top 50 goals at this point; his previous best was 37 last season. JT is an absolute fantasy beast and a top-10 goal scorer in the league. You know what to do.
Tavares delivered an unassisted goal in Wednesday's 5-2 road loss to the Hurricanes.

Toronto's clear-cut No. 1 center with Auston Matthews (shoulder) out of commission, Tavares ranks ninth in scoring with 14 goals and 12 helpers over 22 games, but there are actually 20 skaters across the league working at a better points-per-game pace than the ex-Islander and his still-stellar 1.18 rate.
Tavares scored a goal and added two assists in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Kings. Tavares got a stick on a Morgan Rielly slap shot in the first period for a goal that counts as the game winner. Two of his points came on the power play, and he now has a goal in three straight games and a point in six straight. He'll have much tougher competition Thursday against the Sharks.
Tavares scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Penguins. The goal came on a nifty deflection of a Mitch Marner shot. It was his eighth goal, but just his second in 10 games. Tavares is tied with Auston Matthews for second in scoring on the Leafs with 16 points in 14 games, two behind co-leaders Morgan Rielly and Mitch Marner. He's fitting in just fine with his Leaf teammates and elevating their games in only the way a superstar can.
