Getting named as the NHL’s rookie of the month in March, it seems that Cole Caufield has his sights set on making it back-to-back honours, with a goal in every game in April so far. He has also enjoyed playing the Toronto Maple Leafs this season, netting two goals and two assists in the first three games.

Justin Barron was the latest rookie to add a tick in the goal column this season when he got one on the road trip, and tonight Jordan Harris will have another chance to join the list. He’s had a few looks in his first two games after jumping up in the rush, and perhaps tonight that will pay off.

His focus, and that of his fellow blue-liners, will have to be more on the defensive side after the Canadiens had issues with their opponents on the road. Harris is more known for his defensive play than his offensive abilities, and the Canadiens have limited the Maple Leafs to just two goals in each game to this point, so they know what it takes to keep Toronto’s offence in check for the final game between the two foes until next season.
