Prior to the Leafs game last night, they showed a tribute to Pat Quinn. I thought it was pretty good. Here it is, in case you missed it. The song, by the way, is The Parting Glass by The High Kings.
Pat Quinn wore #23 for the Maple Leafs, and yesterday's 6-2 win over the Washington Capitals was full of the number 23.
- The Maple Leafs scored with 23 seconds left in the first period, then again 23 seconds into the second period.
- When Washington scored its first goal of the game in the second period, we scored again, 23 seconds later.
- This was the Leafs' 23rd game of the season, and we fired 23 shots on goal.
I don't believe this is anything more than a coincidence, but it's a fun one.
