Bob Baun Scores OT Winner on a Broken Leg

5 years ago1.4K views

Leafs defenseman Bob Baun broke his leg in the third period of Game 6 of the 1964 Stanley Cup Final, but he returned to the ice to score the overtime game winner.

The Leafs went on to win the Stanley Cup in seven games, giving them their third straight championship.

Baun was never known as a goal scorer, but he was one of the hardest-hitting defensemen of his era. Baun scored only 37 goals in 964 career NHL games, but he will always be remembered for this vital goal that helped the Leafs win another Stanley Cup.
