TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS POSTSEASON
The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the oldest franchises in the NHL - their lineage traces back to 1912 when they began play as the Toronto Blueshirts. Over the years, the Maple Leafs enjoyed significant playoff success with 64 postseason appearances, 21 Stanley Cup Finals appearances and 13 Stanley Cup championships.
The Maple Leafs enjoyed two golden ages of success in the 1940s and 1960s. In the '40s, the Maple Leafs enlisted the help of future Hall of Famers Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Max Bentley and many more. In the 1960s, Hall of Famers Dave Keon, Frank Mahovlich and George Armstrong spearheaded the Leafs' return to the top of the hockey world.
While the Leafs have made many appearances in the NHL postseason, the team's last championship came in 1967. Dave Keon was the offensive star and the 42-year-old Johnny Bower would post a sensational performance in goal. The Leafs would beat the Montreal Canadiens to win their 13th Stanley Cup.
Hockey is part of the culture in Toronto, and fans are still dreaming of the day that their team can end their long title drought and hang another championship banner from the rafters of the Air Canada Centre.
