Wow, February 13th 1999…
17 Years ago today the Toronto Maple Leafs played their last game at Maple Leaf Gardens against the same team who they opposed on opening night in 1931, the Chicago Blackhawks. By the way, Chicago won 6-2.
P.S. From LetsGoLeafs.com:
Bob Probert of the Blackhawks scored the final goal at Maple Leaf Gardens at 11:05 of the third period. The Leaf player to score a goal in the old barn was Derek King at 8:15 of the second period.
