Hockey reporter Kevin McGran asks five questions in advance of the Leafs game Monday night against the New York Islanders.
1. Can the Leafs stop John Tavares? No one else has lately. The phenom has a 12-game points streak (eight goals, 13 assists), the longest points streak in the NHL this season.
2. Does Joey Crabb or Carl Gunnarsson get into any real fights? They got into it with each other Sunday at practice and one has to wonder whether frustrating is mounting as the losses mount. A bad outing against the Islanders could put some players over the edge.
