1939 -  Boston Bruins

 

The NHL expanded the Stanley Cup finals to a best-of-seven format, though it took the Bruins only five games to defeat the Maple Leafs. Boston goaltender Frank Brimsek held Toronto to just six goals in five games as the Bruins took the Cup for the first time in 10 seasons.

Mel Hill of Boston, who earlier set an NHL record with three overtime goals in the first round of the playoffs, scored twice in the series, and Bill Cowley led all playoff scorers with 11 assists and 14 points, setting modern-era playoff records in both categories.

1938-39 - Boston Bruins - Bobby Bauer, Mel Hill, Flash Hollett, Roy Conacher, Gord Pettinger, Milt Schmidt, Woody Dumart, Jack Crawford, Ray Getliffe, Frank Brimsek, Eddie Shore, Dit Clapper, Bill Cowley, Jack Portland, Red Hamill, Cooney Weiland, Charlie Sands, Art Ross (manager-coach), Win Green (trainer).
