The 1960 NHL playoffs featured Toronto vs. Detroit and Montreal vs. Chicago in the semi-finals. The final series for the Stanley Cup featured Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. The links below follow newspaper accounts of the battle for the 1960 Cup, beginning with some previews on the teams and ending with the victory celebrations. This was also the last of the line for Maurice (Rocket) Richard, the goal he scored in third period in third game was last of his career.

There is a comment section below the semi-finals and the finals...let's keep it f-bombs please!

Cool vintage album rock here to listen to while you're at reading great old hockey stories at the archives! Freeform and NO commercials!
