1903 (February)


The Montreal AAA took time out from the CAHL schedule to face a challenge from the Winnipeg Victorias in a much-discussed series. The first game was a lopsided contest won by the AAA, but the Vics bounced back in the second. With the score tied 2-2 at midnight after 27 minutes of overtime in this Saturday night affair, the Mayor of Westmount refused to allow the game to continue into the Sabbath. The Cup trustees first decided to resume the overtime the following Monday, but later realized it would be impossible to sell tickets to a game which might end after a few minutes or even a few seconds. Consequently, the game was replayed.

Tom Phillips, one of the greatest players of the early era, made his Stanley Cup debut with three goals in four games for Montreal. The Winnipeg players all wore tube skates, the first time an entire team had appeared in the east so equipped.

1902-03 - (Feb.) - Montreal AAA - Tom Hodge, Dickie Boon, Billy Nicholson, Tom Phillips, Art Hooper, Billy Bellingham, Charles Liffiton, Jack Marshall, Jimmy Gardner, Cecil Blachford, George Smith.
