On Tuesday, May 2nd, 1967, the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Montreal Canadiens at the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto to win the 54th Stanley Cup Finals four games to two. It was the 13th (and, as of this writing, most recent) Stanley Cup championship for the Maple Leafs franchise, and the 18th that was won in Ontario. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
