-John Tavares had a heck of a game, having a hand in five of the Islanders' sixteen even strength scoring chances

-Anders Lee also did well, having five scoring chances come off of his stick

-The top line as a whole did very well, with every member of that line finishing with at least a +3 scoring chance differential

-NYI had full control of this game in the first and third periods, out-chancing Toronto 13-4 combined in those two periods. Not sure what happened in the second period that caused them to be out-chanced 8-3, but they had the rest of the game well under control.

-It's well known that Kessel gets a lot of flack from Toronto media, but it's games like these that really make you wonder why, as he had a hand in more than a quarter of Toronto's even strength scoring chances, and he finished his night tied with James Van Riemsdyk for best scoring chance differential on the Maple Leafs

-The Isles overall had a fantastic night on zone entries, averaging almost one whole shot attempt per controlled entry

-Nikolay Kulemin, Frans Nielsen, Casey Cizikas, and Josh Bailey had very good numbers, but the real standouts here are John Tavares and Thomas Hickey. I've heard a lot about Nick Leddy's zone entry work this season, but Hickey was clearly the superior defenseman on zone entries (admittedly in just this one game) tonight, carrying the puck in on every one of his three zone entries. John Tavares was also fantastic, carrying the puck in seven times on nine entry attempts, and having the team average a shot and a half per every one of his entries.

-Tyler Bozak, Morgan Rielly and Roman Polak (!!!) had good entry games for the Leafs, while Kessel was absolutely fantastic as well, as the Leafs averaged a whole shot attempt per every one of his carry-ins, and he carried the puck in five times on his seven successful entries

-Hamonic had a pretty awesome game defending against the Leafs' entry attempts, as he only allowed six carry-ins against on sixteen entry attempts against, and he denied two

-The rest of the Isles' D corps is a whole different story though, as the average carry-in against percentage for non-Travis-Hamonic Isles defensemen in this game was 77.8%, on the opposite side of the spectrum from Hamonic's 37.5%.

-Holzer's not a very good player at the NHL level. However, he did show some value in this game, only allowing two carry-ins against on eight entry attempts against, and foiling two of the Isles' entry attempts against him.

-Franson and Pollak had pretty good games, and Rielly was decent, given that defense isn't supposed to be his strength

-Hamonic, Clutterbuck, and Kulemin had solid games exiting the zone

-Tavares also put up pretty impressive numbers, doing so while handling the puck in the D-zone more often than five Isles D-men

-Toronto as a whole didn't have an easy time exiting the zone in this game, only managing a successful breakout on 1 out of 5 of their D-zone touches, compared to 3 out of 10 for the Isles

-A big reason for this was the D-men for Toronto, and their inability to manufacture many successful breakouts, as only Rielly and Holzer were able to manage more than two successful breakouts

-Speaking of Rielly, solid game for him, as he managed four breakouts en route to a 57.14% exit success percentage
