Cecil Hart’s troops got off to an early lead with Bert McCaffrey and then Nick Wasnie finding the twine behind Bruins goaltender Tiny Thompson in the first period. Captain Sylvio Mantha scored in the second, as did Howie Morenz. Eddie Shore notched the lone first period marker for the visitors.
Holding a 4-1 lead, the Canadiens were only 20 minutes away from doing what virtually all the experts claimed was the impossible, defeating a Boston team that had not lost two games in a row all season.
After allowing two Bruins goals in the early going, Habs netminder George Hainsworth stood his ground the rest of the way. Montreal’s 4-3 victory allowed them claim to the third Stanley Cup in team history and Howie Morenz became the first NHLer to record a second Cup-winning goal.
