[Sunday's FTB]: Stayin' alive

New, comments
Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone. Tampa Bay decided to do their best Leafs impression yesterday, so Montreal stays alive to play another day. Future Leafs Captain Steven Stamkos showed true Heart and Grit last night, getting tangled up with childhood friend and known Hab PK Subban. Toronto media is going to love him. Two games tonight with both the Flames and the Rangers on the brink of elimination.

Auston Matthews has apparently been contacted by Swiss teams. There's no precedent for a top prospect leaving North America to play professional hockey in Europe, so it should be interesting to see what happens.
