Leaf legend. Four-time Sanley Cup champion. Cancer survivor.

Hardcore Leafs fans know his name right away.

The Leafs lost a preseason game. We'll be holding a jersey-burning ceremony outside of the Air Canada Centre tomorrow at noon. Bring your flame-throwers.

Seriously though, the Leafs lost a tight game to the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 at the Air Canada Centre.
