Maple Leaf Gardens

Maple Leaf GardensDuring the 1980s, years before cellphones and the Internet would make hockey news and highlights easily accessible to all, when newspapers and shows such as Sportsline would provide the fans their worth of NHL news, for many the only Maple Leafs action they would see would come via Hockey Night in Canada on CBC, or MolStar Communications during the week.

Living in a rural area with no cable access, a couple hours away from Toronto, the majority of my own fandom as a youth was experienced via the grainy picture of antenna television.   My family didn’t have a lot of money, which meant that attending actual live games was a rare event.   Which, in retrospect, made the event all the more special of an experience.
