Imagine scoring free playoff tickets? Now imagine it’s for Game 7, in Boston!
It happened to four Torontonians. The really mind blowing part is that Leafs fans got their tickets from the Boston Bruins themselves.
It all happened after Boston lost last night, and then got stranded in Toronto because their plane had mechanical trouble. The team just wanted to find a place to eat, so they called a Canyon Creek Chophouse near the airport just minutes before the restaurant was going to close after an already busy Sunday thanks to Mother Day.
And the team, 50 players and staff strong, showed up and ate so much food that they had to call in back-up from another restaurant nearby owned by the same company.
As for the players, everyone agreed they were so polite and gracious about everything that even the Leafs fans who served them said they bad for the team since they had not only lost but were also clearly tired and were now stuck in Toronto. Still, they were as surprised end of the night, The Bruins made sure that those from the restaurant who could get to Boston for tonight could have tickets for the game.
Although Toronto won’t have all the luck in the stands, since one of the guys who scored tickets is a diehard Bruins fan.
The Sens may have just had a secret weapon last night – and it was a fan from Montreal.
11 year old Keila Penner got a personal invitation from the owner of The Senators to come see the game after hearing that she was told she couldn’t wear her Ottawa jersey to school. Here’s where the story gets a little ridiculous:
As soon as the Habs/Sens series kicked off the school Penner goes to said the kids could wear their jerseys to school…as long as it was a Montreal shirt. But Penner, being an Ottawa fan, figured she’d support her team. That’s when the school told her that her jersey was in violation of the dress code policy and she had two options, change her shirt or go home.
Her dad said he was shocked when he found out, since it kind of seems in this day and age when school’s are trying to stop bullying they would single out someone because of what they’re wearing. Despite the fact most people side with him the school stands by the decision, saying it was “acting in the best interests of the child.”
There was a happy ending though thanks to Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Senators, who stepped in and invited the entire Penner family to watch Game 4 of the series. Not only did they get an invite though, he also set Penner up with an autographed team jersey and after Ottawa won, Melnyk gave Penner a shout out on Twitter, saying her family must have brought them luck in their overtime win over Montreal.
