Paths to the final

The defending champion Boston Bruins had an outstanding season. Their final record of 38–5–1 translates to an .875 winning percentage, the best in NHL history. The team did not lose two games in a row all season, until being swept by the Canadiens. This prompted the change for the following year in the Finals format to a best-of-five format.

The series

The final was a best of three series. The Canadiens had lost all four of their regular-season meetings with the Bruins. Captain Sylvio Mantha was the leader, scoring in both final games.
