Already tired going into the Finals after a gruelling semifinal series against Boston, one that also went the limit, the exhausted Canadiens players managed to keep Chicago at bay, keeping the game scoreless until the midpoint of the second period. Johnny Gagnon buried an Aurele Joliat pass behind Charlie Gardiner, his team-leading sixth postseason marker, to put Montreal ahead.
It was all the offense the team needed as George Hainsworth stonewalled the Blackhawks and Howie Morenz added a second goal late in the final frame. The 2-0 win earned the Montreal Canadiens the fourth Stanley Cup in team history and made them only the second NHL team to repeat as champions.
