|Toronto Maple Leafs
Every game that was played between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens in this final went into overtime. In game one, Toronto beat Montreal 3-2. Montreal came back to beat Toronto 3-2 in game 2. But Toronto won the next three games -- 2-1, 3-2 and, in game five, 3-2. That final win is the most famous game in Toronto's legendary history. Defenseman Bill Barilko scored Toronto's overtime goal against Montreal netminder Gerry McNeil to win the Stanley Cup. It was the fourth Cup celebration of Barilko's brief five-season NHL career. But it would also be his last. Tragically, he died in a plane crash while on a fishing trip in Northern Ontario over the summer. Toronto would not win a Cup for another 11 years. Ironically, they would win their next Stanley Cup in 1962, the year Barilko's remains were discovered.
