They said it
"He looks hungry and confident, looking to make a difference. We're trying to put him in really good spots both at 5-on-5 and on the power play to utilize the skill that he has. He's been really good and he and Auston (Matthews) and (Andreas) Johnsson have done a great job together." -- Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe, on forward William Nylander
"They're playing with a good pace. They've got their [defensemen] involved on the forecheck and on the attack, on the rush. They're a good team. Everyone before the season started talked about this being a high-skilled team that could generate a lot offensively and that's definitely what they've got." -- Flyers coach Alain Vigneault, on the Maple Leafs
