As every hockey fan knows, there’s nothing in sports quite like a Game 7. There’s something about do-or-die hockey that brings out the full gamut of emotions from the highest of highs to…well, this. On second thought, maybe I don’t like Game 7s very much.
The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins played a Game 7 last night, with the Rangers pulling out a narrow 2-1 victory and a ticket to the third round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. They’ll play the winner of tonight’s Game 7 between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens.
In honour of this delightful doubleheader of elimination playoff hockey, let’s revisit a time when the Toronto Maple Leafs were actually playing meaningful hockey in the spring without getting our hearts ripped out of our chests in the process. Here’s this week’s question (better late than blahblahblahblah):
Go ahead and submit your answer along with your name so you get a chance to win an awesome* prize. If you missed last week, here was the question and subsequent answer:
Q: Who are the seven former Leafs players or draft picks still playing in the Stanley Cup playoffs?
Congratulations to Bob Boardway for answering correctly! You are now in first place in our contest to win an awesome* prize:
Bob Boardway: 1
Everyone else: 0
Thanks to everyone else for participating in last week’s contest. Good luck in your quest to overtake Mr. Boardway. You have until Saturday at 5 p.m. EST to get your answer in.
*Cannot guarantee awesomeness of said prize. Actually, the prize is you get to either write a guest post for Editor In Leaf or have me write a post of a topic of your choosing. I have, however, the final say on what is published. Certain conditions apply, not valid for residents of Quebec (just kidding), contest end-date yet to be decided.
