[Monday's FTB]: 73 down, 9 to go

We're in the home stretch here folks, let's just hang on a bit longer and it will be time for playoffs!

Good morning PPP! I missed going to yesterdays game to see some Strome in action, but he had a 4 goal, 2 assist game to take and the OHL scoring title for the season from Mitch Marner. The Otters beat the Niagara IceDogs and had I gone I could have sat next to McDavid in the press box, and I would have done my darndest to convince him to report to no one but Toronto. Oh, McDavid was scratched the day Sportsnet came to town to broadcast the game and they were super pissed off. That's payback for employing Glen Healy.

Here are some links to get you into the week.
