Wednesday’s FTB: Leafs wins and a scary situation in St. Louis

Two points for the Leafs and some perspective for us.

Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!

For us on the east coast the night ended well, with the Maple Leafs overcoming a bad penalty call and a fake goal in overtime to defeat the Arizona Coyotes and their third string goalie and take some badly needed two points.

In other Leafs news...

Auston Matthews is developing quite nicely.

Seldon Keefe spoke post-game, and Hot Stove transcribed it for you.

And some more stuff from us, just for you.

While we were heading to bed for dreams of playoffs, something happened in Anaheim that we never want to see;

In the first period of the St. Louis Blues @ Anaheim Ducks game, Blues defender Jay Bouwmeester collapsed on the bench after what Blues GM would call a “cardiac episode”.

The game was postponed after this incident, which is proper procedure. After seeing an emergency at an IceDogs game earlier this season, something like this happening has an immediate impact on both teams and they should be given the night off to care for their team mate, and work through the issue themselves.

We all hope Jay recovers to full health as quickly as he can, gets home to St. Louis safe and sound to be with his family, and all the best to the St. Louis Blues organization who is rallying around him.

Have a good one out there folks. Do your best.
