Make the Best of Scoring Chances - The Leafs, as a team, give up a ton of shots. There will be scoring chances tonight, so make them count.

Convert on the Power Play - The Leafs have allowed 30 PP goals this season. They rank 27th in the league. Take advantage of this as a team.

Solid Goalkeeping - There's incentive for Jonas Gustavsson to play well against his former team. Detroit needs a good effort between the pipes.
