On Monday, April 4th, 1921, the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League defeated the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association at Denman Arena in Vancouver to win the eighth Stanley Cup Finals three games to two. It was the second Stanley Cup championship for the original Senators franchise, and the second that was won in British Columbia. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
5. #4 Georges Boucher (Senators)- D
Boucher claimed partial player of the game in game two, scoring a goal as the Senators picked up the 4-3 win.
4. #8 Cy Denneny (Senators)- F
Denneny also got partial player of the game honors in game two, as he also had a goal in the Senators’ 4-3 victory.
3. #1 Clint Benedict (Senators)- G
Benedict was game five’s player of the game, as he gave up just one goal as the Senators won it 2-1 to clinch the series championship.
2. #6 Jack Darragh (Senators)- F
Darragh earned partial player of the game honors in game two with a goal, as well as full player of the game honors in game three with a goal in the Senators’ 3-2 victory to take the lead in the series.
1. #1 Hugh Lehman (Millionaires)- G
Lehman picked up player of the game in games one and four, as game one saw him allow just one goal as the Millionaires won it 3-1, while in game four he gave up two goals as the Millionaires got a 3-2 win to tie the series up once again.
