The Toronto Maple Leafs are on the brink of eliminating the Montreal Canadiens in their first round playoff series. 

When the Leafs lost captain John Tavares during the first game and eventually lost the game, not everybody was sure the Leafs would be able to come together. 

However they have and have totally shut down the Canadiens defensively. 

One of the team's best players has been William Nylander and he gave a pretty cool update regarding the captain. 

According to Nylander, Tavares is still in constant contact with the team with special game plans. 

"He's reminding us of what we need to do out there, what our mindset needs to be."

Absolutely great to hear that Tavares is still as involved as ever.
