I’ll never forget that day. I was working at Universal Lamp, a lighting store on King street in Toronto. Our boss was a good guy and let the 3 of us on staff go to watch the last half of the game. We watched it at the Wheat Sheaf Tavern at King and Bathurst. The place was packed!
The bar went crazy when the team tied the game after being down 5-3 to start the third period. When Henderson scored it was so loud it felt like it blew the roof off.
After the game, we stayed around a little longer and replayed the game over and over. It was an incredible time!
I’ve always been a Leaf fan and enjoyed Leaf’s like Darryl Sittler. The players seemed more accessible then and less like a business then today.
