'But tonight, it will all end. The veteran linesman with the tough head and the big heart will work his final NHL regular-season game, the 2,500th game of a marvellous career that includes 406 NHL playoff games, 19 Stanley Cup finals, three NHL all-star games and the 1998 Olympic hockey tournament in Nagano. Fittingly, tonight's finale will pit the Toronto Maple Leafs against the Sabres in Buffalo, the city where Scapinello officiated his first NHL game on Oct. 17, 1971.'
