1919 - No winner

 

Seattle's Frank Foyston and Montreal's Newsy Lalonde, two of the greatest scorers of the early 20th century, were at their best in this series. Foyston notched nine goals and Lalonde six as the two clubs stood even at two wins and one tie apiece after five games.

Several of the players became seriously ill with the flu, which had reached epidemic proportions throughout North America and the world in 1918 and 1919. So many Montreal players were sick, health officials were forced to cancel the deciding game and the series was abandoned with no winner declared. Canadiens defenseman Joe Hall, hospitalized with a severe case of Spanish Influenza, died on April 5, 1919, in Seattle.

1918-19 - No decision - Series halted by Spanish influenza epidemic, illness of several players and death of Joe Hall of Montreal Canadiens from flu. Five games had been played when the series was halted, each team having won two and tied one. Final scores are listed above.
