TORONTO - Where’s the puck?
It seems like an obvious question ask Dave Bolland. After all, how many of us get to live out the all-Canadian dream of scoring the Stanley Cup-winning goal, as he did in Game 6 against the Boston Bruins back in June?
Trouble is, Dave Bolland isn’t sure of the answer. Not right away, anyway.
“Do I have the puck? I don’t know if I do,” Bolland says, wearing his trademark mischievous grin during a sit-down interview with the Sun.
Maybe one of his former Chicago Blackhawks teammates has it. Maybe they pulled a “Pat Stapleton” move.
Stapleton, of course, was the member of Team Canada ’72 who scooped up the puck that Paul Henderson fired past Vladislav Tretiak to win the historic Summit Series against the Soviet Union. For decades, Henderson has failed in his attempts to get the puck back — the same disc of rubber he used to register the most famous goal in this country’s history.
