Tavares scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Senators.
While the Leafs as a whole were flat in this one, Tavares still had a very productive night. The 30-year-old has come out of the gate flying this season, scoring two goals and five points through the first two games with both tallies and one of the helpers coming with the man advantage.

It was just another trio of points for Toronto's captain. Tavares doesn't have the speed of some of the younger Leafs, but his game was sharp and focused Wednesday night.

Tavares will probably start Game 5 on the second line with William Nylander and Ilya Mikheyev, but if the Maple Leafs are trailing the Blue Jackets at any point, it wouldn't be surprising to see Keefe bump the 29-year-old forward up to create a "super line" of sorts with Matthews and Marner.
