The atmosphere has improved around the Toronto Maple Leafs and finding some more success on the power play would only bolster the upbeat mood. Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . The Maple Leafs are looking for their re-tooled power play to help get a five-game homestand off to a strong start against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night. You can listen to all the action on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto starting at 5pm et. Jontathan Bernier will make his fifth straight start for Toronto. Justin Peters will start for the Capitals. Toronto (11-8-3) has earned five points over its past three games, a vast improvement after drawing the ire of fans while being outscored 17-5 during a three-game slide. That losing streak included a 6-2 defeat at Buffalo on Nov. 15 before a 9-2 home loss against Nashville three days later - a dreadful performance that led one fan at Air Canada Centre to toss his Maple Leafs jersey on the ice. Coach Randy Carlyle believes things have picked up since then with Toronto scoring 12 goals in three games. Its a dramatic change, but you cant hide from the fact that what happened in our own building with the loss to Buffalo was pretty demoralizing to our group, he said. It put a lot of pressure on everybody involved. We responded with more of a workman-like attitude, but in this market you better be prepared to roll with the punches. The Leafs delivered a gutsy effort Wednesday, rallying twice before eventually falling 4-3 in overtime at Pittsburgh. However, the power play continues to be a concern after it failed on three chances to drop to 1 for 23 over the last six games. Carlyle is planning to make changes, but didnt go into specifics. When you make adjustments to power-play units, to top offensive units, you try to do it in the mindset that youre going to stimulate something a little different, he said. Thats all were trying to do. We think there are options available to us. Leo Komarov could be one of those options after finding the net twice against the Penguins, giving the center three goals and an assist in the past two games. His four goals on the season match his total as a rookie from 2013-14. Toronto has dropped three of four meetings with Washington (10-8-4), but won 2-1 in a shootout on Nov. 23, 2013, in its only home matchup over that span. The Capitals, playing four of their next five on the road, are coming off a 3-1-1 stretch. They blew a two-goal first-period lead before doing the rest of the scoring in a 5-2 win over the visiting New York Islanders on Friday, two days after falling 3-2 in overtime in the opener of the home-and-home set. You go into this obviously looking for four points when you play someone, and we got three, coach Barry Trotz said. We gained a little ground, but importantly, we didnt lose any ground. Star right wing Alex Ovechkin has been helping with four goals in as many games, matching his total from the previous 15. He totaled three in the two meetings with the Islanders, including two on the road. Ovechkin has 27 goals and 22 assists in 33 career games against the Maple Leafs, including 16 and six, respectively, in 16 visits to Toronto. Nicklas Backstrom leads the Capitals with 22 points - one more than Ovechkin - after picking up six in the past four games. The center, however, has one point in his last four at Toronto.
