April 22, 1945 • At 12:14 of the third period, Maple Leafs defenseman Walter “Babe” Pratt scored the Cup-winning goal to give Toronto a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game Seven of the Final.
Leafs rookie goaltender Frank McCool, who allowed only nine goals in seven starts, limited the Wings to one goal or less for the fifth time in the series.
April 22, 1962 • Toronto’s Bob Nevin and Dick Duff notched third-period goals to defeat the Chicago Black Hawks 2-1 in Game Six of the 1962 Final. The win propelled the Maple Leafs to their first of three straight Stanley Cup championships.
April 22, 1976 • Toronto center Darryl Sittler equalled Maurice “Rocket” Richard’s 32-year-old record for most goals in one playoff game by scoring five goals in the Maple Leafs’ 8-5 Quarter-final series win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Philadelphia’s Reggie Leach joined Richard and Sittler just days later, as Leach scored five of his playoff-record 19 goals on May 6, 1976, in a 6-3 win over the Boston Bruins.
April 22, 1988 • Patrik Sundstrom set an NHL record by recording eight points (3-5-8) in New Jersey’s 10-4 win over Washington in Game Three of the Patrick Division Final.
