Mats Sundin Sets Leafs Mark for Goals and Points

hockeyMats Sundin just scored in a wonderful hockey game our Leafs are dominating. It was his 917th point and 390th goal, becoming the all-time Maple Leafs leader in both categories.

I'm loving the fact it's now 7-1, but I'm especially pleased with how things unfolded for Sundin to set both marks with one shot. They originally gave him an assist on Tomas Kaberle's 2nd period goal, but during the intermission they shows us how he never touched the puck. Rightly so, they stripped him of the record-setting point and brought him back into a tie with Darryl Sittler. That allowed him to get the goal and point record simultaneously.

I like Mats. Every once in a while I wonder if he isn't lacking a certain fire in the belly that Wendel Clark and Doug Gilmour used to have, but I never questioned his tremendous talent and team-first mentality. His attitude has always been awesome and he's given my team over a decade of sensational service. No, he hasn't carried us to the Cup, but neither did Darryl, Wendel or Dougie.

#13, I salute you.
