On Thursday, April 3rd, 1930, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Boston Bruins at the Montreal Forum in Montreal to win the 17th Stanley Cup Finals two games to none. It was the third Stanley Cup championship for the Canadiens franchise, and the fourth that was won in Quebec. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
