On Saturday, April 12th, 1941, the Boston Bruins defeated the Detroit Red Wings at the Detroit Olympia in Detroit to win the 28th Stanley Cup Finals four games to none. It was the third Stanley Cup championship for the Bruins franchise, and the second that was won in Michigan. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
