PlayoffsEdit

Toronto Maple Leafs 3, Boston Bruins 0 Edit

The Leafs and Bruins met for the fourth time in playoffs in the 1930's. The Leafs won the three previous series and would sweep the Bruins, though all three games were decided by one goal with two going into overtime. However, the Bruins would get their revenge the next year when it counted, defeating the Leafs in the 1938-39 finals.

Game 1 was a close checking affair with the only goal scored by George Parsons at 1:31 of the second OT period. Turk Broda posted the shutout.

Game 2 saw the Leafs go in front 1-0 on a second period goal by "Pep" Kelly until Charlie Sands tied it up at 7:37 of the third period. Gordie Drillon (last Leaf to lead the league in scoring) quickly responded and the Leafs won 2-1.

Game 3 saw the teams trade goals with Bill Cowley scoring twice in the third period to send the game to overtime. Drillon scored at 10:04 of the first OT to win the series for the Leafs.
