History of the National Hockey League/1942–1967/Dynasties/Toronto Maple Leafs/1967 Stanley Cup Finals

Contents
Toronto Maple Leafs

The Original Six era ended with the 1967 Stanley Cup Finals between the two-time defending champion Montreal Canadiens, and the Maple Leafs. The oldest team in the league, the third-place Leafs were led in goal by 37-year-old Terry Sawchuk and 42-year-old Johnny Bower. Known as the "over the hill gang", Toronto became the oldest team to win the Cup by defeating the favoured Canadiens in six games. The Maple Leafs have not appeared in the Stanley Cup finals since, although they came close to a Stanley cup Finals rematch against the Canadiens in 1993, instead losing to the Wayne Gretzky-led Los Angeles Kings in the Clarence Campbell Conference (now Western Conference) Finals.
