Round 3
Stanley Cup Final
1901 - Winnipeg Victorias

 

After a five-year hiatus, the Winnipeg Vics regained the Stanley Cup from the defending champion Shamrocks in consecutive victories. Forward Dan Bain, who scored the Cup-winning goal four minutes into overtime in game two, played both games with a mask as the Vics continued to surprise Montrealers with new innovations from the west.

Winnipeg's victory over the Shamrocks meant the Stanley Cup passed out of the CAHL, so that when Ottawa unseated the Montreal team for the league title their was no Cup to claim. Due to the lateness of the season (March) and the travel to Winnipeg that would be involved, Ottawa declined to issue a Stanley Cup challenge.

1900-01 - Winnipeg Victorias - Burke Wood, Jack Marshall, Tony Gingras, Charles Johnstone, Rod Flett, Magnus Flett, Dan Bain (captain), G. Brown.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
