Noteworthy:
-Pat Quinn coached his first NHL game at Air Canada Centre since being fired from the Leafs at the end of the 2005-06 season. This was a terrific place for me, back when I was a player and for the years I was coaching here. I have terrific memories and that was a nice touch,” said Quinn of the tribute that was played for him on the scoreboard during a stoppage in play. Quinn, now coach of the Oilers, ranks second in coaching wins in Leafs history, trailing only Punch Imlach.
-The line of Nikolai Kulemin, Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel combined for 8 points.
-The Leafs went 3-for-8 on the power-play, ending a stretch of 7 straight games without a power-play goal.
-Prior to the game, the Leafs honoured six Team Canada Olympians for their gold medal achievements at the 2010 Games: Tessa Bonhomme, Jayna Hefford and Becky Kellar (women’s hockey), Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir (ice dance) and Heather Moyse (bobsleigh).
