Super Series '78 stopped at Maple Leaf Gardens, as the Czechoslovakian club team Kladno defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 8-5. It was the first Maple Leaf appearance for rookie defenseman Greg Hotham, and the only 1977-78 game in a Leaf uniform for forward Scott Garland, who had been out with a knee injury. Garland was traded to the Los Angeles Kings after that season, and was killed in a car accident in June 1979. Mr. Garland scored one of the Maple Leafs' goals, while Mr. Hotham picked up an assist.
