1914 - Toronto Blueshirts

 

The Montreal Canadiens, making their first appearance in a Stanley Cup series, faced the Toronto Blueshirts in a two-game showdown for the NHA title and possession of the Cup.

Although each team posted a shutout on its home ice, the Blueshirts, who later became the NHL's Maple Leafs, outscored the Canadiens overall.

Game two in Toronto was the first Stanley Cup matchup ever played on artificial ice.

Three days after the conclusion of the series between the Blueshirts and Canadiens, Victoria of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association came east to play in Toronto. In the first of what would prove to be 13 consecutive east-west confrontations for the Stanley Cup, Victoria overlooked the formality of submitting a challenge, and thus the trustees did not regard the series as legitimate which might have led to quite a dispute if the Aristocrats had won. As it was though, Toronto swept the first best-of-five series in Stanley Cup history. Frank Foyston led the balanced Blueshirts attack with three goals, including the Cup-winner in game three.

1913-14 - Toronto Blueshirts - Con Corbeau, Roy McGiffen, Jack Walker, George McNamara, Cully Wilson, Frank Foyston, Harry Cameron, Harry Holmes, Scotty Davidson (captain), Harriston, Jack Marshall (playing-manager), Frank and Dick Carroll (trainers).
