January 11:  On this day in 1941, the Leafs blasted the New York Americans 9-0. The game was completely penalty free, as was the game two nights earlier against the New York Rangers.. The Leafs became and remain the first and only team to play back-to-back games without a single penalty called against either team.

January 11:  On this day in 1959, Rob Ramage was born in Byron, Ontario. The former first overall draft choice of the Colorado Rockies in 1979 became a Leaf defenseman and team captain the season after winning a Cup with the Calgary Flames in 1989. He played two complete seasons with Toronto without missing a scheduled game between 1989 and 1991 and accumulated 84 points in 160 games. He was lost in the Expansion draft in the summer of 1991 and won another Cup with the Canadiens in 1993. Since his retirement, Ramage has worked as a colour analyst for Blues' television broadcasts.

Rick St. Croix
January 11:  On this day in 1983, the Leafs and the Philadelphia Flyers traded goaltenders. The Leafs sent Michel "Bunny" Larocque to Philly in exchange for Rick St. Croix. In 47 games with the Leafs, St. Croix posted a record of 11-28-2 with a 4.61 G.A.A. During the 1983 playoffs, St. Croix played one minute of one game and allowed a goal. Thus, his Goals-Against-Average for that playoff season worked out to a whopping 60.00.
