On Sunday, April 16th, 1939, the Boston Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston Garden in Boston to win the 26th Stanley Cup Finals four games to one. It was the second Stanley Cup championship for the Bruins franchise, and the first that was won in Massachusetts. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
