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,

My 19-year-old and I were ready to celebrate our Leafs' five game series win over the Habs on Thursday night. Early in OT Montreal got a 2-on-0 and scored, so we prepped to go nuts last night. This time, the Leafs dominated overtime, but still lost. Game seven is Monday

On Thursday night, I missed the Leafs coughing up their 3-0 lead against Columbus because I was recording this week's Pandemic Friday episode of Toronto Mike'd.

Last year, it felt like the Leafs season was 82 exhibition games until the real season began against Boston. It was a (mostly) entertaining 82 games, but it just didn't feel like it mattered. When the real season started, we bowed out in the first round to Boston. This season
