Toronto-native Tom Wilson continues to turn a corner in his development. The winger has points in three of his last four games while skating on a fourth line consisting of Jay Beagle and Daniel Winnik.
Both Beagle (13) and Winnik (12) have set new career highs in goals. On Tuesday, Wilson tied the high water-mark he set last year.

Wilson benefitted from a beautiful lob pass by Winnik. Winnik alley-ooped the puck into the offensive zone, springing Wilson on a breakaway.
As the former Plymouth Whaler approached Curtis McElhinney, Wilson deked and then backhanded the puck five hole past the Leafs netminder.
Craig Laughlin called the tally a “goal-scorer’s goal” and it’s hard to disagree.
