Archived Maple Leafs Photos

Dec 2, 1967


I found these old photos in a Toronto archive website, some great forty-plus year old action shots. The first one is of the first year Oakland Seals visiting Maple Leaf Gardens. Toronto won this game 3-0, out-shooting  Oakland 49 to 38. Leaf Jim Pappin and Seals goalie Charlie Hodge are shown trying to track the flight of the puck. Ron Ellis potted his 10th and 11th of the season, Mike Walton had his 14th, Tim Horton collected two assists and Johnny Bower notched the win.

This one is the sixth and final game of the semi-finals from the previous season. Toronto beat Chicago 3-1 to advance to the Cup Finals, out-shooting the Hawks 37-35. Leaf defenders Larry Hillman (2) and Marcel Pronovost (3) are watching Terry Sawchuk kick out a shot as Lou Angotti looks to pounce. Brian Conacher and Pete Stemkowski beat Glenn Hall for goals while Pat Stapleton scored for the Hawks.

Ron Ellis (8) gobbles up the lose puck as Terry Sawchuk looks on and Larry Hillman guards the crease. Toronto took a three games to two Stanley Cup Final lead over Montreal on goals from Pappin, Conacher, Pronovost and Keon. Sawchuk turned aside 37 of 38 shots for the victory.
