On This Day March 1st.

March 1: On this day in 1926, Allan Stanley was born in Timmins, Ontario. Stanley enjoyed the best years of his long NHL career in Toronto between 1958 and 1968 where he was paired mostly with fellow Hall-of-Fame defenseman, Tim Horton and won four Stanley Cups. Allan Stanley took one of the most important faceoffs in Leafs' history in the 1967 final game when he was assigned by coach Punch Imlach to tie up Jean Beliveau. He won the draw and after a couple of passes, captain George Armstrong fired an empty net goal. Final score, 3-1 Toronto.

March 1: On this day in 1970, the Minnesota North Stars ended a franchise record winless streak of 20 games by trouncing the Maple Leafs 8-0. Former Leafs goaltender Cesare Maniago earned the shutout for the Stars.
