Euro Curve takes a look at the latest international hockey headlines.


- Tonight's feature game between the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs, 7 p.m. ET on Hockey Night in Canada on CBC, showcases a myriad of international talent.
Forget the fact that both captains are Scandinavian (Saku Koivu-Finland, Mats Sundin-Sweden)- or that both No.1 goalies are European (Vesa Toskala-Finland, Cristobal Huet-France), the drama lies in the young international talent. Nik Antropov, Andrei Kostitsyn, Mikhail Grabovski, Tomas Plekanec, Alexander Steen, Alexei Ponikarovsky.
Perhaps the most intriguing of all players in this game is Jiri Tlusty, the 2006 1st rounder (13th overall) who has three points in four games with the Maple Leafs. He has looked extremely confident since being recalled due to a rash of injuries to the Toronto foward corps. Enjoy the game, as the end result will undoubtedly have a Euro Curve.
