Max Domi wants father-son line after seeing dad score

Tie gets goal for Maple Leafs in 2017 Rogers Centennial Classic Alumni Game

Tie Domi's goal in the 2017 Rogers NHL Centennial Classic Alumni Game had his son Max thinking one thing: Comeback.

The Arizona Coyotes forward tipped his cap to his dad, who scored for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the third period of their game against the Detroit Red Wings at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto on Saturday.

Tie, who's third on the NHL's all-time list with 3,515 penalty minutes, looked more like a sniper when he snapped a wrist shot past Detroit goalie Manny Legace to tie the Alumni Game at 3 with 12:02 left in regulation. He even nailed the celebration.

The whole scene got Max thinking about a father-son line.

Max holds the Domi-family record for goals in an NHL season (18 in 2015-16) and trails his dad by 81 goals and 177 points despite playing 913 fewer games. Tie, 47, hasn't played in the NHL since last dressing for the Maple Leafs in 2005-06. A young man can dream.
