Lowering the Boom ─ The Bobby Baun Story

Bobby Baun was an elite rearguard, one of the strongest players in NHL history.  Known for his devastating hip checks and aggressive defensive play, Baun played a pivotal role in four Leaf Stanley Cup wins.  But it was Baun’s winning goal in overtime of game six of the 1964 Cup finals that made him a legend.  Carried off the ice on a stretcher in the third period with what would later be determined to be a fractured leg, Baun insisted on returning to the game, giving new meaning to the words determination and courage.

In Lowering the Boom, Baun tells us not only about that legendary moment in hockey history, but shares stories of teammates Eddie Shack, Tim Horton, and Johnny Bower and what it was like to play against such greats as Rocket Richard, Bobby Hull, and Gordie Howe.  This book is a close, personal look at the game in the Original Six era and at the men who played it.
