A huge matchup this past weekend and a huge win for the Montreal Canadiens as they took down the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 in overtime.
While the Canadiens would have preferred to not give the Maple Leafs the point, two points is two points and has the Canadiens just six points out of a playoff spot.
There's been plenty of speculation on what the Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin might do at the deadline including possibly moving Tomas Tatar or Jeff Petry for big returns.
Both players would definitely help a playoff team in a big way and are each signed through the 2020-21 season.
However they won't be going anywhere.
Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports confirmed in a report that Bergevin will not be trading either of those Habs' players unless a mind blowing offer comes his way.
Lavoie adds that Bergevin fully believes the team is ready to make a playoff push next year and doesn't want to break up the locker room chemistry.
What do you think of Bergevin's decision?
Trading deadline is around the corner and I’m told that Tomas Tatar and Jeff Petry are not being shop. Standings will dictate if some UFA players are going to be traded. @CanadiensMTL
