From the Toronto Daily Star, January 6, 1940.
It reads: “Hector “Toe” Blake, left winger de luxe and ace sniper of the deflated Montreal club which steams into Leafs at the Gardens tonight, desperate to break a losing jinx which has relentlessly pursued them. Blake recently lost a pair of his running mates when Johnny Gagnon joined the Americans ‘Foreign Legion,” under General Red Dutton, and Robinson fled to New Haven. New blood has been injected and you may see Blake and “Wild Bill” Summerhill hotly chasing rubber on the same front line tonight. Last time Canadiens and Leafs met in Montreal it was a delirious Donnybrook.
If the boys resume where they left off it will be a show no fight fan can afford to miss.
