KEYS TO THE GAME

Since joining Winnipeg, Pierre-Luc Dubois has six points (four goals and two assists) in nine games. The stats are a bit deceiving, as the points have come in a total of three games. In the past five games, Dubois has one goal … Neither club is sharp on the penalty kill. In their two games in Vancouver, the Leafs were shorthanded three times and the Canucks scored on all three power plays. The Jets are 2-for-8 in their past four games on the power play and have allowed three goals on six opponent power plays … The Leafs were one of six NHL teams without a shorthanded goal prior to games on Monday. The Jets had one. Winnipeg has given up no shorthanded goals, Toronto two.
