Red Wings Maple Leafs Memories

So, here I am back in the Motor City. Quick stop over this type, got in around 6pm tonight and will be back in Toronto Sunday night. With it being dead quiet tonight, or all week in Maple Leaf land I thought it was a good time to look at some Maple Leaf/Red Wings moments. In recent memory this has to be right up there no?

This next one was a game I was lucky enough to be at:

I am not sure of a Maple Leaf player who played for such a short time as Mike Foligno did but had such a quick love affair with Leaf Nation:

Here is my Wings-Leafs memory:

I attended a playoff game at MLG in April of 1988…………the Leafs had a terrible record that year but made the playoffs because the North Stars were worse………..the Wings won that game 8-0…………..many fans were so upset they threw their Leaf jerseys on the ice……………it was one of the low points in a decade that was full of them for Leaf fans

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
