The Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup in 1945


 

The Maple Leafs became the first team in NHL history to win Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on the road, putting the finishing touch on a roller-coaster postseason that included improbable comebacks and unsung heroes. In a bizarre near-reversal of the 1942 Stanley Cup Final against Detroit, in which Toronto won the series it had trailed 3-0, the Maple Leafs relinquished a 3-0 series lead to the Red Wings before gutting out the Game 7 win in Detroit.

For the first time, two rookie goalies met in a Stanley Cup last round. 18-year-old Harry Lumley was in net for the Wings and the Leafs had 26-year-old Frank McCool. Toronto rookie Frank McCool, replacing star goaltender Turk Broda who was away for military service, shut out the Red Wings in Games 1, 2 and 3. McCool remains the only goaltender in NHL history with three consecutive shutouts in the Final. Nineteen-year-old Ted Kennedy led the NHL playoffs in goals (7), including a hat trick in a losing effort in Game 4 of the Final, and was second overall in points (9).
