William Nylander and Max Domi show early signs of chemistry in Maple Leafs’ exhibition loss to Senators

After a decent start (5-0 in shots) and a scoreless but reasonably bright power play early in the first period, the Maple Leafs were thoroughly outplayed for the remainder of the opening frame, outshot 24-7 and outscored 2-0.

Following a William Villeneuve slashing penalty halfway through the first period, the Senators power play struck quickly through Brady Tkachuk at the front of the net, where the Leafs were loose and soft for the better part of 30 seconds before the damage was finally done.

Late in the period, an all-Marlies line of Logan Shaw, Max Ellis, Roni Hirvonen, Maxime Lajoie, and William Villeneuve couldn’t get out of their own end before Tim Stutzle hopped the boards against a tired Leafs unit and ripped a second goal past Keith Petruzzelli.
