For some reason, Lemieux's been on the brain of late ...
The best ever, in my humble opinion.
I vividly remember the night Mario came out of retirement; Dec. 27, 2000. It was a Wednesday night. Our Maple Leafs were in Pittsburgh. I watched the game at home with my brother, and Lemieux assisted on a Jaromir Jagr goal thirty seconds into the first period. In his first game after more than three and a half years away, Lemieux finished with a goal and two assists.
The Leafs lost 5-0 that night. It was a pleasure.
