Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak
scored the tying goal in Nashville on Thursday night, just 3:12 after Shea Weber gave the Predators their 1-0 lead in the third period.
Bozak's third period goal continued his recent streak of offensive production. Of the Leafs last six games -- in which the team has picked up points in five of six games -- Bozak has mirrored the team, recording a goal and five points. He has only been held off the scoresheet once over that span, which was last Saturday in Washington.
On top of those offensive contributions, he has also been a steady contributor in the faceoff circle and on special teams. Bozak has won 52.6 per cent of his faceoffs and is tied for the team lead in power play assists with three.
Bozak reiterated the positives from the Leafs' three-game road swing, with the increased confidence from two wins over top opponents and the team grasping what it takes to win the League.
“Whatever it takes. Obviously, we just played two really good teams at home in the west and came out on top both games so we’re feeling pretty good about ourselves," said Bozak. "We thought we eliminated a lot of their chances, Reims played good again and gave us a chance to win."
"We’re learning how to win so that’s big for us.”
The Leafs return to action on Saturday night against the Vancouver Canucks.
