Season results


For a second straight year, the season gets underway amid controversy. George Kennedy makes a deal with the Vancouver Millionaires to obtain Jimmy Gardner in return for Newsy Lalonde.

With the completion of the deal merely a formality, Lalonde refuses to report to the Millionaires. Instead, it is Didier Pitre who leaves for Vancouver.

For his part, Gardner is named the Canadiens’ coach and takes over from Napoleon Dorval.

The rivalry between Quebec City and Montreal generates its first sparks. During the second game of the season, a skirmish between the Bulldogs’ Joe Hall and Lalonde sends the latter to the hospital, but Montreal wins the game, 4-3.

The Canadiens win nine of their first 14 games and are well on the way to their best season yet. The team, however, is dealt a huge blow on February 14 in a game against the Ottawa Senators. Lalonde and Gardner, two of the team’s best offensive players, are sent off the ice on stretchers and see their seasons come to a sudden end.

While another checkered end to the season looms on the horizon, the Canadiens hang on to win four of their final six games. They finish the regular season tied for first place with the Toronto Blueshirts.

In order to determine the O’Brien Cup champions, the teams meet in a two-game playoff series. The Canadiens win the first game at the Westmount Arena, 2-0, but drop the second game in Toronto, 6-0. The Blueshirts win the league title by virtue of having scored more goals.
