Anyone remember the game, think it was in the 90's when the Leafs were up 5-0 in the 3rd and the Blues beat us 6-5 by the whistle (brutal). Last game I saw at the Gardens in 81 was a shellacking of the Leafs by the Blues.
They always seem to have the upper hand on us.
Why?

I always remember the 5-0 game.  I don't think they scored their first goal until about 15 minutes left in the third.  I'd have to look it up to be sure.  I've always hoped I'd live long enough to see the leafs do that to a team.  Didn't we beat them one year in the playoffs when they had cujo before we did?  St Louis is a rivalry I miss from way back when playing in the west.

Yes, that was the magical 1993 run when the Leafs should have gone to the Stanley Cup Final against the Habs.  That is if Kerry Fraser wasn't paid off by the NHL to ensure that LA got through for those U.S. tv ratings.

Yes, and Wendel hit Cujo in the face with the slap shot heard round the world (payback).

Payback for what?

Didn't Cujo and the Blues hammer them 3 years earlier?

Soshnikov out with an injury, Leivo gets a chance.

Babcock, probably.

Can they not do better than Romanuk and Millen?  I mean this is an outfit that claims to be world-leading enterprise-class.

Romanuk seems overly obsessed with telling us how long we've gone without a whistle these days.

Indeed.  I'm not sure why he thinks that's significant.

What's up with the Leafs being unable to keep a hold of their sticks. Been 4 or 5 occasions that they've had to go back to the bench to retrieve another one.

OK, Andersen just made up for any deficiencies on the first goal.
