PlayoffsEdit

Detroit Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 2Edit

Detroit Red Wings 4, Boston Bruins 0Edit

The Wings eliminated the Bruins in the Semi-finals the year before and would sweep them in convincing fashion in the 1943 finals, 4 games to 0. Johnny Mowers would shutout the Bruins in games 3 and 4.

Game 1 saw goals traded by the Wings Jack Stewart and the Bruins Art Jackson. However, Mud Bruneteau would record a Hat trick in addition to a Shorthanded goal by Sid Abel and a goal by Joe Carveth, staking the Wings to a commanding 6-1 lead. A late goal by Ab DeMarco meant little and the Wings took a 1-0 series lead.

Game 2 had a scoreless first period and then the Bruins jumped out to their only lead of the series on goals by Jack Crawford and Art Jackson in the second period. A late goal by the Wings Les Douglas cut the lead to 2-1 going into the third which saw the Wings explode for three goals by Carveth, Carl Liscombe and Syd Howe. A late goal by Jackson (his 6th of the playoffs) wasn't enough and the Wings took game 2.

Game 3 saw the Wings dominate as Don Grosso posted a hat trick and Les Douglas added a goal. Mowers posted the shutout.

Game 4 resulted in the Wings completing the sweep on a first period goal by Carveth (his sixth) and Liscombe (also his sixth). Mowers posted his second shutout of the series in leading the Wings to the team's third Stanley Cup. Art Jackson led the playoffs in goal scoring with 6 while Flash Hollett led in assists with 9.

Stanley Cup Engraving

  • Jack Adams (Manager-Coach) was suspended during the playoffs, so injured defenceman Ebbie Goodfellow served as Coach during Adams' suspension. When the cup was engraved, Adams was listed as Manager and Goodfellow as Coach, even though Adams was officially the Manager-Coach.
  • Johnny Holota, and Carl Mattason (Ass't Trainer) names were originally left off the Stanley Cup. When cup was redone during 1957–58 season Holata name was added to the Cup. John Holota played only 12 games, did not play in the playoffs, and did not qualify to be engraved on the Stanley Cup.
