Round 3
Stanley Cup Final
1905 (January) - Ottawa Silver Seven

 

Now a member of the FAHL, Ottawa took on Dawson City in a midseason challenge for the Stanley Cup. The Nuggets, backed by Yukon prospector Colonel Joe Boyle, departed from Dawson City on December 19 to meet the famed Silver Seven nearly a month later. The 4,000-mile excursion included travel by dogsled, boat and train and set the club back by over $3,000.

Wearied from the long trek, the challengers were overwhelmed. In the second game, Ottawa set Stanley Cup scoring records of every variety, including an unparalleled 14-goals from Frank McGee.

1904-05 - Ottawa Silver Seven - Dave Finnie, Harvey Pulford (captain), Arthur Moore, Harry Westwick, Frank McGee, Alf Smith (playing coach), Billy Gilmour, Frank White, Horace Gaul, Hamby Shore, Bones Allen.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
