from Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail,
But nowhere is Don Metz to be found.
Metz, of course, would be 91 now if he were still playing, but if some modern equivalent of the sleek and slim winger from Wilcox, Saskatchewan, could lace them up for Game 5, there might be a chance.
Don Metz, history will show, did not dress for the first three games of the 1942 Stanley Cup final. His Toronto Maple Leafs were down three games to none against the powerful Detroit Red Wings and seemed almost certain to be swept in four straight.
Toronto goaltender Turk Broda had lost all confidence, saying the Wings were “unbeatable — they’re too hot.”
