Vintage Leafs action

I could be wrong,

Bob Baun with the A on his jersey
Jim Dorey is #8
Bernie Parent is the goaltender.

If those 3 are correct, the picture is either from the 1970-71 or 1971-72 seasons.

The ranger has to be Walt Tkaczuk.

The poster is 100% correct.

I believe this picture is from the 1971 quarter final series, either game 3 or 4. In the second game of the series at MSG, Bernie Parent's mask went into the crowd during a melee'. The mask in this picture is the emergency replacement Jacques Plante (who was the backup goalie for the Leafs), had his company make quickly for game 3 back at Maple Leaf Gardens.
