Paths to the Final

As in 1922, the PCHA champion met the WCHL champion in a playoff, with the winner to meet the NHL champion in the Final. That series was held in Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg. The NHL champion would have to play the loser to advance to the Final. Montreal first played the Vancouver Maroons, defeating them 2–0 in a best-of-three to advance to the Final.

The series

The first game was played in Montreal and the second game was played in Ottawa, to take advantage of the artificial ice.

A rookie forward named Howie Morenz scored a hat-trick in game one and a further goal in game two to lead the Canadiens.

Stanley Cup engraving

  • Montreal Canadiens added a new ring to the bottom of the Stanley Cup. The club had the majority of their members engraved on it. Each Stanley Cup winning team since 1924 has engraved majority of their winning members on the Stanley Cup. The number of names allowed is controlled by the NHL. Joe Malone, Charles Fortier were not included on the cup, even though there is room. Only Bobby Boucher, Ed Dulfour, Leo Danduran, and Cecil Hart have their full first names engraved on the cup. All other members had their first name shortened, Montreal also included the three teams they defeated in the playoffs Ottawa, Vancouver, Calgary two straight games.
  • Mistake - Co-Owner Louis A. Letourneau was misspelled H.A. LETOURNEAU. This mistake was not corrected, but repeated in 1929–30. Louis Letourneau was the first person to have his name misspelled on the Stanley Cup.
