On This Day April 23rd.

April 23: On this day in 1964, Leaf defenseman Bob Baun was carried off the ice on a stretcher in Game 6 of the Finals against the Red Wings after blocking a Gordie Howe slapshot. He came back in overtime and scored the winning goal. He then helped the Leafs to win Game 7 and their third consecutive Stanley Cup. He later found out that his foot was broken.
