Tavares racked up 26 goals and 60 points in 63 games before the NHL suspended its season in March. Some owners may be a bit disappointed with Tavares' production this year considering he put up 47 goals and 88 points in 82 games last campaign, but it's hard to complain about a near point-per-game pace. Assuming the NHL ultimately resumes regular-season play, Tavares could still eclipse the 70-point mark for a third consecutive campaign if he stays steady down the stretch, that is if all the remaining 12 games got made up.
Tavares notched two power-play assists in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Lightning. The Leafs' power-play unit came through with just enough offense for Frederik Andersen, and Tavares was right in the thick of the action. The 29-year-old now has 26 goals and 60 points through 63 games, his seventh straight campaign reaching the 60-point plateau.
Tavares scored two goals, including one on the power play, on two shots with a minus-1 rating and one hit in a 4-3 victory over the Lightning on Tuesday. The 29-year-old had seven shots against the Penguins last Thursday and settled for two assists in that game, but since then, he's scored on his last three shots in the most recent two games. With that, Tavares' shooting percentage is now almost one percent higher than his career average. He has 26 goals and 56 points in 57 games this season, putting him on pace for his third straight 30-goal and 80-point campaign.
Tavares (illness) will suit up for Tuesday's home tilt against Arizona. Despite missing Monday's practice, Tavares is good to go for Tuesday's contest. He's racked up five goals and seven points during his active four-game point streak, giving him 48 points in 49 games this season.
Tavares (illness) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's home game versus Arizona, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports. Toronto's captain is dealing with an illness that has plagued many teams in recent weeks. Tavares still could suit up Tuesday, but it appears to be a 50-50 shot that he'll dress against the Coyotes.
