Montreal Maroons - 1935 Stanley Cup Champions.

The 1935 Stanley Cup Final championship series was contested by the Montreal Maroons and the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Maroons would win the series 3–0 to win their second and final Stanley Cup.

Paths to the Final

Toronto defeated the Boston Bruins in a best-of-five 3–1 to advance to the Final. The Maroons had to play a total-goals series; 1–0 against Chicago Black Hawks, and win a second two game total-goals series 5–4 against the New York Rangers.

The Series

This was the first all-Canadian Final since the Maroons defeated the Victoria Cougars in the 1926 Stanley Cup Finals. Maroons goaltender Alex Connell allowed just four goals in the three games. Dave Trottier was the overtime hero in Game 1 while Baldy Northcott scored the Cup winning goal and led all playoff scorers with 5 points.

Maroons manager-coach Tommy Gorman became the only coach to win successive Stanley Cup titles with two different teams after winning with the Chicago Black Hawks in the 1934 Final.

  • Bill MacKenzie was loaned to New York Rangers on 1935-01-29. In the Stanley Cup Semi-Finals, the Maroons defeated the Rangers, while MacKenzie played in a losing cause for the Rangers. He was included on the Stanley Cup and team picture. However, under NHL rules MacKenzie was disqualified from winning the Stanley Cup, because he was a member of the Rangers when the Maroons won it.
  • In 1934 Tommy Gorman (Manager-Coach) led the Chicago Black Hawks to the Stanley Cup. In the off-season Gorman was fired after a dispute with President/Owner Fredric McLaughlin. Montreal Maroons hired Gorman as (Manager-Coach) and he led Maroons to the Stanley Cup. He became only Manager and/or Coach to win back to back Stanley Cups with 2 different teams.
  • Montreal Maroons did not include any playoff scores in 1935.
