Read: Benoit Pouliot Stopped Thinking

Benoit PouliotBenoit Pouliot has a five-game point streak and points in six of his last seven games.

When asked what changed in his game, Pouliot told John Giannone after the game against the Wild, “I just try to stop thinking too much. Just play the game I am supposed to play and go out there and play hockey. It’s a matter of going consistently.”

Alain Vigneault said before the Maple Leafs game that Pouliot took his being a healthy scratch and responded in a big way, “jumping at a second opportunity.” He says that Pouliot is being more physical and finishing his checks.
