?A couple of notes to get the day started; 

-The Pittsburgh Penguins are closing in on an extension with goaltender Matt Murray, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. 

-In the first of what will be many head to head meetings to come, Patrik Laine's Winnipeg Jets faced Auston Matthews' Toronto Maple Leafs last night. Laine got the best of Matthews and the Leafs last night, registering a hat-trick(including the game winner) in Winnipeg's 5-4 victory over Toronto.
