Friday links: Preparing for the battle of two teams Cupless since 1967

New, comments

The Toronto Maple Leafs last won the Stanley Cup in the spring of 1967. That fall, the Blues joined the NHL. Neither team has won the Cup since then. Neither team is very good this season. It's a wonder why Leafs fans and Blues fans get along so well — although I will always think Nick Kypreos is a piece of shit.
