Maple Leaf Gardens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maple Leaf Gardens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Maple Leaf Gardens is an indoor arena in Toronto, Ontario, on the northwest corner of Carlton Street and Church Street. One of the temples of ice hockey, it was home to the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1931-1999. It was also home to the Toronto Toros of the WHA from 1974-1976, the Toronto Marlboros of the OHL (junior hockey), the Toronto Rock of the NLL, and the Toronto Huskies in their single season in the Basketball Association of America (BBA) (a forerunner of the modern NBA). The NBA's Toronto Raptors played a handful of games at the arena each season from 1995-1999 (mostly when the Rogers Centre (formerly SkyDome) was unavailable), and the Buffalo Braves played a few home games each year at the arena as well. It was also one of the few venues outside of the U.S. where Elvis Presley had concerts (one on April 2, 1957).The Beatles once did two shows on the same night in Maple Leaf Gardens which has not been done in any other venue"
