On Tuesday, March 25th, 1924, the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League defeated the Calgary Tigers of the Western Canada Hockey League at Ottawa Auditorium in Ottawa to win the 11th Stanley Cup Finals two games to none. It was the second Stanley Cup championship for the Canadiens franchise (their first as a member of the NHL), and the fifth that was won in Ontario. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
