1904 (March) - Ottawa Silver Seven

 

The Montreal Wanderers, who had stripped the cross-city rival AAA club of its best players, skated to the inaugural Federal Amateur Hockey League (FAHL) championship with a perfect 6-0-0 record. As such, they were granted a two-game, total-goals challenge for the Stanley Cup.

Following the first game, which ended with a 5-5 tie, a new two-game series was scheduled to be played in Ottawa. However, the Wanderers refused to play unless one of the games would be staged in Montreal. As defenders of the Cup, the Silver Seven did not have to yield to such a demand, and the series was awarded to Ottawa.

Ottawa faced Brandon, the champions of the Manitoba/Northwestern Hockey League, in their fourth Stanley Cup challenge of the season and won in consecutive games. Frank McGee scored eight goals in the two games, including five in the first to tie his own Stanley Cup record set earlier in the year. A 21-year-old Lester Patrick starred for Brandon in his Cup debut.

1903-04 - Ottawa Silver Seven - Suddy Gilmour, Arthur Moore, Frank McGee, Bouse Hutton, Billy Gilmour, Jim McGee, Harry Westwick, Harvey Pulford (captain), Scott, Alf Smith (playing coach).
