On Thursday, April 8th, 1943, the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Boston Bruins at Boston Garden in Boston to win the 30th Stanley Cup Finals four games to none. It was the third Stanley Cup championship for the Red Wings franchise, and the second that was won in Massachusetts. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
