1924 - Montreal Canadiens

 

As in 1922, the PCHA champions (Vancouver Maroons) and the winners of the WCHL (Calgary Tigers) met in a postseason playoff, only this year it would determine which team got a bye into the Stanley Cup finals against the NHL champion. The series was played in Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg as the teams traveled east, and was won by the Tigers two games to one.

Billy Boucher scored three of the Canadiens' five goals in Montreal's series with the Maroons, including both game-winning tallies, to lift Montreal over Vancouver, which lost its chance at the Stanley Cup for the third straight year.

After defeating the PCHA champs, Montreal took on the Tigers in the Stanley Cup final. A 21-year-old rookie forward named Howie Morenz paced the Canadiens with a hat trick in game one and a goal in game two as Montreal rolled past Calgary to complete a sweep of both 1924 series.

Morenz, Aurel Joliat and Sylvio Mantha all made their first appearances on a Stanley Cup winner.

1923-24 - Montreal Canadiens - Georges Vezina, Sprague Cleghorn, Billy Coutu, Howie Morenz, Aurel Joliat, Billy Boucher, Odie Cleghorn, Sylvio Mantha, Bobby Boucher, Billy Bell, Billy Cameron, Joe Malone, Charles Fortier, Leo Dandurand (manager-coach).
