On Tuesday, March 28th, 1922, the Toronto St. Patricks (now Toronto Maple Leafs) of the National Hockey League defeated the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association at Mutual Street Arena in Toronto to win the ninth Stanley Cup Finals three games to two. It was the second Stanley Cup championship for the Maple Leafs franchise, and the fourth that was won in Ontario. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
