Ben Scrivens looks like he is adjusting well to the NHL. He made 24 saves on the night, including 10 in each the second and third periods. Twice he was left facing the Sens' forwards with no defence, which led to two goals. Overall, Scrivens looks like he could be making a case to be the backup goalie upon James Reimer’s return.
Also, the top line of Phil Kessel, Joffrey Lupul and Tyler Bozak played well. All night they gave Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson trouble, which led to them being able to score two goals and go a combined plus-one with three accumulated points. Not the greatest of stats, but when you look at the rest of the roster, no other Leafs forwards were able to pick up any points.
The defence did their part, helping the offence as well. Every defencemen except for Mike Komisarek and Jake Gardiner got at least three shots in on Anderson. The Leafs were able to put pressure in the offensive zone for most of the night and although it only led to two goals, this is the kind of play you should expect from them every game. However, one of the reasons they were able to do so was because of all the penalty trouble that the Senators were having, which leads us to the next slide.
