His claim to fame, and the reason I think he deserves recognition, is his play in the 1950 Stanley Cup final. He scored OT winners in games 4 and 5 against Detroit. In game 7, I believe he rang another off the post in OT. The Rangers lost that incredibly close series, but it was probably the lone bright spot they had in the original-6 era. Raleigh scored 4-5-9 in 12 playoff games that post-season, and was also important in their first round upset of Montreal.
... I think it was about time for Bones.
