Playing in Honour of Burns Tonight

As much as I’d enjoy watching the Leafs whoop the Habs by a score like 6-0, I really hope it’s a close game. Heck, I’d take a close game where the Habs win even than a blowout where the Leafs win.

I know there are Leafs fans out there who threw up in their mouth as I said that. I don’t care.

Because tonight is not about the Leafs. Nor is it about the Habs. It’s about Burnsie.

And I want to see both teams honor his legacy. I want to see both teams honor one of the greatest coaches in NHL history, who just happened to be the coach of the two teams with the biggest fan bases in all of hockey.

Tonight, just for one night, I strip away my allegiance to the Blue and White.

I will be rooting for Price as much as I root for Gustavsson. Cammalleri as much as Kessel. That C-H logo as much as the Maple Leaf.

Sue me.

Go Leafs Go.
