On March 7, 1914, they met the Toronto Ontarios at the Westmount Arena for the first match up of a two-game, total-goal series. George Vezina sparkled in goal, stonewalling the visitors in a 2-0 shutout. On the offensive side of things, Harry Scott became the first Canadiens player to score in postseason competition and Donald Smith added the insurance marker.
