Playoffs[edit | edit source]

Montreal Maroons 2, Boston Bruins 1[edit | edit source]

The last playoff series win for the Montreal Maroons saw them defeat the Bruins 2-1 in a best of three first round series. The Bruins were without all-star defenseman Eddie Shore who was sidelined with a cracked vertebrae.

Game 1 at Montreal was dominated by the Maroons who went ahead 2-0 on goals by Carl Voss and Baldy Northcott before Jack Beattie cut the lead to 2-1. Late third period goals by Herb Cain and Bob Gracie sealed a 4-1 victory. Dit Clapper received a major penalty for punching referees Dave Trottier and Clarence Campbell. He was also fined $100 but not suspended for any games.

Game 2 at Boston saw the Maroons Lionel Conacher take a minor penalty in the first period after a collision with the Bruins Leroy Goldsworthy in which he broke Goldsworthy's nose. Dit Clapper scored on the Power play at 4:54. A brilliant performance by Tiny Thompson who posted a shutout and a pair of goals by Ray Getliffe in addition to a tally by Charlie Sands lead the Bruins to a 4-0 win and tied the series.

Game 3 at Boston saw the Bruins took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Dit Clapper. The Maroons scored four straight to take the series 2-1. The Maroons would lose their second round series to the New York Rangers.
