Bobby Baun, Dead at 86

Bobby Baun played in the NHL for 17 years, winning the Stanley Cup with the Toronto Maple Leafs  in 1962, 1963, 1964, and 1967.

Bobby Baun is best knwon for scoring a key goal on a broken leg. On April 23, 1964, having fractured his ankle earlier in the game, he returned in overtime and scored the game-winning goal to even the best-of-seven Stanely Cup final between the Leafs and Detroit Red Wings at 3-3. The Leafs won the next game 4–0 to secure their third consecutive Stanley Cup championship.
