Super smooth by Auston Matthews
- Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs had a rough night on Sunday, but even though they surrendered eight goals, there were some bright spots.
- Of course, Leafs could find some in the fact after going down 7-1 they managed to still show some fight and bring things back to 8-4.
- So… they didn’t give up?
- Well, Leafs fans, we’re going to give you a little more than that because Auston Matthews made a play that may not have shown up on the score sheet, but was still one of the niftier passes we’ve seen this season.
- He didn’t even need a puck to make this pass, he was just flipping Morgan Rielly’s stick back to him.

- Honestly … might be the coolest hockey thing we’ve ever seen.
- Fiala did the same thing last year, but let’s be honest, it wasn’t as smooth
