On This Day October 29th.

October 29: On this day in 1918, future Maple Leaf Hank Goldup was born in Kingston, Ontario. Goldup played 99 games in a Leaf uniform and helped them to win a Stanley Cup in 1942 before becoming part of a trade that brought Hall-of-Famer, Babe Pratt to Toronto. Hank's son Glenn also played in the NHL between 1973-74 and 1981-82. Hank Goldup scored 29 goals and added 34 assists as a Leaf.

October 29: On this day in 1920, Bill Juzda was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. "The Beast" came to Toronto in a big trade with the Rangers during the spring of 1948 and went on to play four seasons through 1952 in a Leafs uniform, helping Toronto to collect two Stanley Cups along the way. He was on this ice when teammate Bill Barilko scored his heroic overtime Cup-winner in 1951. Juzda had 32 points in 211 games as a Leafs defenseman. He died on February 17, 2008 at the age of 87.

October 29: On this day in 1944, in their first road game of the 1944-45 season, the Maple Leafs defeated the Chicago Black Hawks 11-5. Two Leafs recorded hat tricks that evening, Dave "Sweeney" Schriner and Lorne Carr. It was the only double-digit goal tally for the Leafs that season.

October 29: On this day in 1959, Hall-of-Fame right-winger Mike Gartner was born in Ottawa, Ontario. Gartner scored 708 regular season goals in the NHL, including 53 as a Leaf between 1994 and 1996. Unfortunately the Stanley Cup eluded Mike Gartner in his 19 year NHL career, but as of 2008-09, he holds the NHL record for the most 30-or-more goal seasons with 17. Nobody else is even close.

October 29: On this day in 2005, the Ottawa Senators extended their 2005-06 regular season record against the Leafs to a perfect 3-0, this time in a 8-0 humiliating shutout. It would be the first of two consecutive games that the Sens scored 8 goals against the Leafs. As at the end of the 2006-07 season the Leafs and the Senators had played 58 regular season games since Ottawa's re-entry into the NHL in 1992. The Leafs have an all-time regular season record of W-21, L-29, T-3, OL-5 against the Sens. Between 2000 and 2004, the Leafs eliminated the Senators in the playoffs in four years out of five and have a perfect playoff series record of 4-0 against Ottawa.
