Warrior Wednesday

               In 1964 the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings playing for the Stanley Cup. The Leafs were down in the series 3-2. It was in game 6 that Bobby Baun a Leaf defenceman took a shot of the ankle from none other than Gordie Howe. As a result Baun was carried off the ice on a stretcher and diagnosed with a cracked bone in his foot. That didn't faze Baun as he returned later on in the game and actually scored the game winner 1:43 into overtime to send the series to a game 7. Baun would play game 7 as the Leafs go on to win the game and the Stanley Cup. Bobby Baun is this weeks warrior for showing true heart and determination.
