Notice, the 42-year-old was inserted in the second period, and his team won the period 4-2.
David Ayres won the game 6-3, the Maple Leafs lost 3-6.
This game was played February 22, the 53rd day of the year, and Carolina is the most “53” team in the entire league.
*Zamboni = 37 *Carolina = 37
*2/22/2020 = 2+22+20+20 = 64 *Hurricanes = 64 *Second Period = 64
Adding to the riddle, this came on the 40-year anniversary of the ‘Miracle On Ice’.
