The Maple Leafs made a big signing yesterday. Kyle Dubas locked up Toronto Marlies coach Sheldon Keefe for another two years. The Marlies season ended rather non-glamorously last Sunday in an overtime loss to the Charlotte Checkers.

Meanwhile the Blues look to bounce back from their loss in Game 1 tonight. Young Tyler Bozak needs to step up and score some goals like he used to for the Leafs.

A young Connor McDavid saw that and aspired to be as successful as Bozak. The funny part is Bozak may wind up having more Stanley Cup rings than McDavid. But only if his Blues start winning, preferably tonight.
