When Brian Elliott takes the ice on Tuesday night, something is going to look different. The mask he wears – night in and night out – won’t be getting the start. Instead, Elliott will don a special mask, dedicated to both veterans and those currently serving their country. Head Strong Grafx designed Elliott’s mask, but the presentation of the mask came from 92-year-old Charles Rohde, a World War II veteran.

Elliott will only wear the mask, which features a salute to both Canadian and American soldiers, for Tuesday’s game. It will be auctioned off at a later date with all proceeds going to charity. The St. Louis Blues will also have their own ceremony for current and veteran troops during Tuesday’s Salute to the Military Night at the Scottrade Center. The Blues will warm up in camouflage jerseys that will be raffled off, with all proceeds going to military charities.

To say that feelings of hate existed between the Maple Leafs and Red Wings during the 1946-47 season would be the understatement of the half-century. And during the 1947 playoffs, one game had an incredible 27 penalties.
