Today in NHL History 1978

April 21
Goaltender Mike Palmateer recorded the second and final shutout of his playoff career to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 2-0 win over the visiting Islanders, in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Quarter-Finals. 


Obtained this black marker sig IP. This was in Toronto during the opening of a John Anderson hamburger place.

50 years ago 1964
In the local newspaper, they have a "Flashback" column to show events that happened on this day in different years. I found this one interesting for today
Mrs. A.J. Coles, of Rawdon Street, says enthusiasm is mounting for the Celebrities' Items Tea to be held April 29 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Watkins of Dufferin Avenue.
Mrs. Coles is convenor for many items which have been donated by well-known personalities to the project sponsored by the Alexander Graham Bell chapter of the IODE. The proceeds will be used to give scholarships to prospective nurses.
The Expositor was given a preview of the gifts during the weekend.
Some of the donors are: The Duchess of Windsor, a glass basket from Paris, believed to be a collector's item; Leo Reise, former NHL great, a money clip he won on a three-star selection; Mrs. Diefenbaker, her hat; Mrs. Pearson, a necklace she bought in India; Lady Bird Johnson, an engraving of the White House; Tommy Ivan, Bobby Hull's hockey stick autographed by his fellow players.
No idea on where these items ended up. The ones that caught my eye were from Leo Reise and Tommy Ivan. This is how some of these items end up floating around in peoples belongings. I guess there's always a chance it could end up in some garage sale.
