On Thursday, May 25th, 1978, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Boston Bruins at Boston Garden in Boston to win the 65th Stanley Cup Finals four games to two. It was the 21st Stanley Cup championship for the Canadiens franchise, and the sixth that was won in Massachusetts. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
5. #8 Peter McNab (Bruins)- F
McNab claimed player of the game honors in game three, getting one goal and one assist as the Bruins picked up a 4-0 win.
4. #19 Gregg Sheppard (Bruins)- F
Sheppard earned player of the game in game four, scoring a goal and two assists as the Bruins went on to win it 4-3 in overtime.
3. #23 Bob Gainey (Canadiens)- F
Gainey got player of the game in game two, scoring a goal as the Canadiens won it 3-2 in overtime.
2. #10 Guy Lafleur (Canadiens)- F
Lafleur took player of the game honors in game one, scoring one goal and a pair of assists as the Canadiens claimed the 4-1 win.
1. #14 Mario Tremblay (Canadiens)- F
