The Toronto Maple Leafs is one of Canada's greatest hockey teams. They have a history packed with great achievements and terrible setbacks. This book brings to life seven key events. The stories include Babe Dye's "invisible" goal, the "flying" Bill Barilko, and the lucky bet that netted King Clancy. These are the stories of a beloved Canadian franchise that continues to amaze!
