That's what Greg Sakaki of Nanaimo News Bulletin discovered when the trio visited Vancouver Island recently. The three hockey legends were honored guests of the BCHL All Star Weekend.
McDonald told a story about teammate “Cowboy” Billy Flett tearing up his knee while snowmobiling impaired. That sort of off-ice injury would have voided Flett’s contract, so McDonald and company helped him limp into the next Leafs practice before anyone else arrived.And of course, whenever Sittler is around he must take questions about his famous 10 point game.
“Cowboy two-hands Tiger as he jumps onto the ice,” McDonald said. “Tiger [gets] all pissed off, chases him down into the corner, he goes down in a heap, ‘Oh my God, my knee’s shot, my knee’s shot.’”
“The final score was 11-4. I was in on 10 of the goals, I think Lanny had five or six points, and Tiger was a minus-2.”Funny stuff. Sakaki has more at the Nanaimo News Bulletin website.
