About A Roy: A birthday for Mats Sundin, born in 1971 in the Stockholm borough of Bromma on a Saturday of today’s date: he’s 52. In March of 1993, when he was 22 and playing in his second NHL season with Quebec, his Nordiques rolled into Montreal’s Forum and whomped the Canadiens 6-2. Sundin scored this second-period goal to make it 4-2; it also happened to be his 42nd on the season. He added three assists on the night, too. Celebrating with him are Mike Hough and Claude Lapointe. Wondering where it all went so wrong is, of course, Patrick Roy. The 1992-93 season was the best, statistically, of Sundin’s 18-year NHL career: he ended up with a regular-season tally of 47 goals and 114 points. He played one more season with Quebec before a trade took him west to Toronto. (Image: Fonds La Presse, BAnQ Vieux-Montréal)
