Ralph Backstrom Ralph Backstrom A small and speedy centreman, Backstrom played almost 15 years for Montreal (winning six Cups in the '50s and '60s). He had a career-high 27 goals in 1961-62 and led the Canadiens with 65 points. Despite Backstrom's talents, he was never more than a third-line centre with Montreal (behind Hall of Famers Jean Beliveau and Henri Richard) and was traded to Los Angeles in 1971. Backstrom ended his NHL career with the Blackhawks and then played four more years in the WHA.

Andy Bathgate Andy Bathgate Statline: Bathgate was one of a rare lot to play more than the scheduled number of games when, in 1963-64, he was traded from New York to Toronto in mid-season and wound up playing 71 games in a 70-game season.

Bobby Baun A prototypical defensive defenceman, Baun's overtime goal in game six of the 1964 finals gave the Leafs a new life, and they beat the Wings in the final game, at home, 4-0 to win their third straight Stanley Cup. His overtime goal was scored on a fractured ankle. Earlier that game, Baun was taken off on a stretcher after being felled by a slapshot. He returned, ankle frozen and taped, to score what Sports Illustrated ranked as the 17th greatest sports moment in the 20th century. Baun called it a career in 1973.

Jean Beliveau Jean Beliveau Tidbit: Beliveau was the first recipient of the Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP in the playoffs in 1965.
