Leafs Win The '67 Cup

May 2, 1967
Who can possibly forget the Over-the-Hill Gang that Punch Imlach assembled for the final season of Original Six hockey in 1966-67? In game six of the all-Canadian finals, the Leafs held a 2-1 lead with 55 seconds left to play when coach Imlach sent Allan Stanley, their 42-year old defenceman, to take the crucial faceoff in the Leaf end with Gump Worsley on the Montreal bench. Stanley won the draw from Jean Beliveau, and George Armstrong scored the empty-netter to ensure Stanley Cup victory.

Quotable:
"More than anything else we were just so satisfied. Especially the old guys. Everybody had told us it was over for us. Hockey was changing and we were too old. But we proved them wrong."
- Allan Stanley
