Montreal Canadiens - 1924 Stanley Cup Champions.

The 1924 Stanley Cup Final saw the National Hockey League (NHL) champion Montreal Canadiens defeat the Western Canada Hockey League (WCHL) champion Calgary Tigers two games to none in the best-of-three game series. It was Montreal's fourth appearance in the Final and second championship.

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.
