I recall Leafs Vs. Boston game 1 playoffs where Pat Quinn caught Bobby Orr with his head down, and crushed him with a thundering check (some say elbow). Bench clearing brawl ensued , former Bruin Forbes Kennedy took on the whole Boston team, and fans, as he was escorted out. Leafs lost that game 10-0, second 7-0 and I believe the home games both went to overtime losing 4-3 and 3-2.Punch Imlach was fired and it's been downhill for the Leafs since. Any Bruin fans remember differently?
I can recall that game.It was an afternoon tilt and one of the few times i ever got to see the Leafs play on TV.I remember mostly Jim Dorey,Quinn,Ellis in the box, and Pie Face Mackenzie spending most of the game yelling at the Leafs.It was was first taste of the rowdy Garden crowd, and they didn't care who got pelted with beer cups and chickens, as long as a mess was made.Nor did Sanderson and Cashman mind yapping back at their own fans.
