The Toronto Maple Leafs are certainly making a strong case to become one of the top teams in the league since the beginning of the season. They are 13-7-0 in 20 games so far this season, and their record since October 31st is even more impressive. 

The Maple Leafs are 6-2-0 in their last eight games, as they won their last five games. They are currently sitting at the second position of the Atlantic division, six points behind the Tampa Bay Lightning with one more game played.

Offensively, Toronto can count on a strong sophomore season so far from Auston Matthews, who has 19 points in 16 games played. He missed the last four games with an upper-body injury.

Toronto have a total of nine players with ten points or more so far this season for the Leafs (Matthews, Kadri, Rieilly, Van Riemsdyk, Nylander, Marleau, Marner, Brown and Hyman). 

The only question mark for head coach Mike Babcock might be the play of his starting goaltender Frederik Andersen. He owns a record of 11-6-0 in 17 starts this season, with a 3.04 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.

What do you think, Leafs fans? Does Andersen will find his game back?
