  • EDITORS, PHOTO EDITORS AND PHOTO LIBRARIANS: KILL FROM YOUR SYSTEMS AP PHOTO NY160, SLUGGED CANADA-TIM HORTONS, TRANSMITTED ON THURSDAY, AUG. 28, 2014. THE IMAGE DOES NOT SHOW HOCKEY PLAYER TIM HORTON - FILE - In this March 5, 1954, file photo, Toronto Maple Leaf's Tim Horton, right, outmaneuvers Detroit Red Wings' Tony Leswick (8) who falls to the ice during the first period of an NHL hockey game in Detroit. Few things unite Canadians the way Tim Hortons does. For half a century, they have warmed themselves on chilly mornings with the chain's coffee and Timbits  or doughnut holes to Americans. The chain's aura in Canada comes from its namesake: hockey Hall of Famer Tim Horton, the co-founder who died at 44 in a 1974 car accident after playing in a game for the Buffalo Sabres. (AP Photo/F
