The 1959–60 Toronto Maple Leafs season was Toronto's 43rd season in the NHL. The Maple Leafs finished 2nd in the league and defeated the Detroit Red Wings in six games in the Semi-finals before being swept by their arch-rivals, the Montreal Canadiens, in the 1960 Stanley Cup Finals.

Regular SeasonEdit

Stasiuk from Buyck-23Jan1960

Vic Stasiuk from John Bucyk and Bronco Horvath, January 23, 1960.

A typical night for the "Uke Line" was demonstrated on January 23, 1960 at Maple Leaf Gardens. Trailing 1-0 in the first period, John Bucyk tied it up on the power play assisted by Bronco Horvath and Vic Stasiuk. Only 23 seconds into the second period on the power play, Don McKenney took a Bucyk pass and fired on net. Horvath tipped it in for his 31st goal to make it 2-1 Bruins. Later in the period, Stasiuk won a draw at the Leafs blueline and Horvath picked up the puck. Horvath's pass to Bucyk on the left wing found Stasiuk driving to the net and he backhanded it in to make it 3-1 Boston. The game ended in a 3-3 tie after Ron Stewart found the puck in a goal mouth scramble at 7:22 of the third period and Dick Duff scored at 10:35 on a bizarre play. George Armstrong was stopped on a breakaway by Harry Lumley but Armstrong's stick clipped Lumley's face as he skated by. Dazed, Lumley couldn't stop Duff's backhand shot from going in.
