Top Line: Chilly welcome for P.K. Subban, NHL expansion closer for Toronto, more
By Allan Muir
A guide to this morning's must-read stories around the NHL.
• A suburban Toronto city council voted to proceed with plans to share in the costs of building an NHL-caliber facility. And hey, was that former NHLPA executive director Paul Kelly all but promising the league would send an expansion team to fill it?
• A late equalizer from Logan Couture and a shootout clincher from Michal Handzus propelled the Sharks to their sixth straight win. But coach Todd MacLellan praised the Anaheim Ducks as the better team on the night.
• Trilight Entertainment, a Regina-based production company, has plans to make a movie based on the 1986 bus crash that killed four members of the Swift Current Broncos. It's an amazing story and you have to hope for the best, but seeing the press release promoted on the same page as Space Milkshake and Vampire Dog (starring Norm MacDonald!) doesn't breed a lot of confidence.
• Owen Nolan is going to kill stuff. And he wants you to watch. Sort of like a Saw movie, but with more playoff beards.
• Check out the trailer for the new Chris Nilan documentary The Last Gladiators.
