Don and Douggie, sitting in a tree

As promised, here are the three instances of The Kiss between Don Cherry and his BFF, the “best hockey player of all time”, Doug Gilmour, on Hockey Night in Canada. The first is from 17 May 1993, just after the first game of the Toronto–Los Angeles series to decide the Campbell Conference champion, which LA would go on to win 4-3 (and there’s video of the original kiss on YouTube—it quickly became a Canadian television classic). The third instance of The Kiss is from the Leafs’ Doug Gilmour night on 31 Jan 2009, when his number was honoured by the Leafs organization. I don’t know when the second kiss is from; if anyone can date it, history will thank you, or something. Anyway, here they are:
