Throwback Thursday: Borschevsky

On this exact day 21 years ago one of the most exciting goals in Leafs history was scored to win game 7 of the first round of playoffs and eliminate the rival Red Wings. Highly favoured to win the series, the Motor City’s playoff hopes ended 2 minutes and 35 seconds in to the overtime period with a goal from Nikolai Borschevsky. Two more game 7′s would follow in that year’s post-season, first a win against the Blues, and finally a loss against number 99 and his Kings.

This past New Year’s Eve Nikolai took part in the Alumni Showdown with the Wings and chatted with Paul Hendrick about that famous goal here:
