On Saturday, May 14th, 1977, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Boston Bruins at Boston Garden in Boston to win the 64th Stanley Cup Finals four games to none. It was the 20th Stanley Cup championship for the Canadiens franchise, and the fifth that was won in Massachusetts. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
