  • Nylander logged a pair of assists in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Lightning. Nylander assisted on an Auston Matthews goal in the second period before adding another on John Tavares' tally later in the frame. The 26-year-old winger has been on fire of late with seven points (three goals and four assists) in his last three contests. Nylander finished the regular season with a career-best 34 goals and 46 assists in 81 games.

  • Nylander had a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 Game 5 win over the Lightning. Nylander had a hand in each of Toronto's first three goals, helping the Maple Leafs turn a 2-0 deficit after one period into a 3-2 lead early in the third. After failing to find the scoresheet over this series' first three games, Nylander has stepped up with three goals and two assists over the past two, and his efforts have helped Toronto pull within one game of winning a playoff series for the first time since 2004.

  • Nylander scored a pair of goals, including one on the power play, in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Lightning in Game 4. Nylander's pair of goals came in the third period, but it was far too late to mount a comeback from five goals down. These were the winger's first two points in the playoffs. The 26-year-old has added 14 shots on net and a minus-3 rating from a middle-six role. He had 34 tallies and 80 points in 81 regular-season contests, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him pick up the pace on offense a bit.

  • Nylander, who has been held scoreless in the first two games of Round 1, skated with John Tavares at Friday morning's practice and could start Game 3 in that spot, reports Mark Masters of TSN. Willie had been moved to line three late in the season to spread offense across the top nine and the results were great. Nylander and Tavares have chemistry and should have space on the ice in Game 3 with the defensive focus on Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner.

  • Nylander scored twice Friday in a 5-2 win over Boston. Nylander's first goal was sweet -- he came in full speed on a breakaway and looked to be making a backhand move. Jeremy Swayman started to cheat right and Willie used quick hands to pull it back and stuff it in past the left pad. His second was an unassisted dangle around the Bruins' zone and again he deked Swayman in tight and stuffed it past his left pad. Fans complain a lot about Nylander, but the fantasy proof is in the numbers -- his career-best 34 goals, 80 points, 31 PPP and 256 SOG are golden for managers. And so is his point-per-game work in the postseason.
