Leafs on the NHL Vault *Nostalgia Thread*
« on: October 16, 2011, 06:51:52 PM »
I'm not too sure how many people here are registered for the NHL Vault or GameCenter Online, but having a browse through it ( Vault Link ) there seem to be plenty of old Leaf games from previous decades on there.

Currently, as there's no live games worth watching tonight, I'm re-watching the first Leafs game I ever saw, and the game that made me a Leafs fan - game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals in 2002 v Carolina.

As I am based in the UK and decent access to live games and highlights has only ben available for a few years now, what other classic games are out there that MUST be watched? Or what eras are worth checking out games from primarily? I've read about all sorts of things over the years, but the chance to see footage and games of some of these intrigues me a lot.

Hopefully this thread can give a bit of nostalgia and memories of the good and bad old days as well.

(Mods, I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in, so I accept it may be moved elsewhere!)

the February 1976 game against the Bruins where Darryl Sittler scored 10 points!

If you're a real trooper the 93/94 playoffs...

No sign of the Sittler game in the vault (yet) :(

Plenty of games from 93/4 v Detroit, St Louis and LA so that's an option...

What about Bruins v Leafs in 1989? Leafs score last 6 goals to win in OT?

5/1/93 -  When Borschevsky scored the OT goal in game 7 vs Detroit.... That game, that moment is the high I've been looking for for almost 20 years.

Ah, not sure what I was thinking but it's actually the 92/93 Leafs and the heartbreaking Gretzky and those teams...
