Proud moments of being a Maple Leafs fan.
I am and will forever be a Maple Leafs fan, i know that the team hasn't brought Stanley home in a long time, hell i wasnt even born and 15 other teams have won the cup since 67 so it could be worse but that doesnt change the fact that i am a fan and will continue to be, friendships have been formed thanks to Leaf fans uniting, memories established and moments shared as we all hope and wait for that crowning moment once again.
What i would like to know is what moments as a Leaf fan or any hockey fan has your team made you feel proud to be a fan since you have been following hockey?
I will start with my Top 10 proudest moments
10-Felix Potvin's 3 shutouts in one series against the Hawks
9-Mats Sundin's 500th goal the winner in OT and a hat trick against Flames
8-Damphousse's 4 goal performance against the hated Habs
7-Al Iafrate's end to end rushes and notching a goal
6-Leafs knocking off the Sens in every playoff series head to head
5-Rick Vaive recording his first 50th goal season and first for Maple Leaf franchise
4-Wendel Clark enough said
3-Doug Gilmour's wrap around OT winner against the Blues
2-Darryl Sittler's 10 point night against Bruins
1-Maple Leafs going 7 games against the L.A. Kings in Conference Final
There are many more moments but these are the ones that make me smile the most what about you?
