The Bruins kept digging with star center Milt Schmidt notching the tying marker as time wound down in the second period. It would prove to be the last puck to elude Bill Durnan, who stonewalled the visitors the rest of the way.
Lach shouldered the load in the final frame, setting the table for the Toe Blake tally that would prove to be the game-winner. The playmaking center completed his night with an assist on Dutch Hiller’s goal as the Canadiens rolled to a 6-3 victory, securing the sixth Stanley Cup Championship in team history.
Blake, runner-up to Elmer Lach among playoff scorers, became the second Canadiens player to score two Stanley Cup-winning goals and Maurice Richard, with 11 postseason points, finished third in the scoring race.
