1923 - Ottawa Senators

 

For the first time in Stanley Cup history, brothers opposed each other in the finals. In fact, two sets of brothers - Cy and Corb Denneny and George and Frank Boucher - stood on opposite sides of the center line for the opening face-off. Cy and George skated with Ottawa, while Corb and Frank suited up for Vancouver (who were now known as the Maroons). Each of the Boucher brothers scored twice in the series.

Ottawa's Harry "Punch" Broadbent, who posted the only goal in game one, scored five in the series to lead the Senators, whom Vancouver coach Frank Patrick called the greatest team he had ever seen.

The WCHL-PCHA playoff format was abandoned, but the WCHL champions were given the opportunity to compete directly for the Stanley Cup in a best-of-three series. The Eskimos gave the weary Senators a difficult time, but Ottawa came through with a pair of one-goal victories. Cy Denneny and Harry Broadbent scored the game-winning goals.

1922-23 - Ottawa Senators - George Boucher, Lionel Hitchman, Frank Nighbor, King Clancy, Harry Helman, Clint Benedict, Jack Darragh, Eddie Gerard, Cy Denneny, Harry Broadbent, Tommy Gorman (manager), Pete Green (coach), F. Dolan (trainer).

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
