The 1967 Stanley Cup playoffs, to decide the 1967 championship of the National Hockey League (NHL) was the last before the expansion from six to twelve teams. The Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the defending champion Montreal Canadiens in six games to win the Stanley Cup. As of 2010, it is the most recent time Toronto has won the Cup. The Leafs' squad was renowned as the oldest ever to win a Cup final; the average age of the team was well over thirty, and four players were over forty.
