Playoffs[edit]

Finals[edit]

The Toronto Maple Leafs swept the best-of-five series against the New York Rangers three games to none,[1] the first two games were to be played in New York City but because the circus was in town, the second game was played in Boston. The third and final game was played in Toronto,[4] it was called the "Tennis Series", because the Leafs scored 6 goals in each game. The Rangers scored 4 times in their own building, twice at Boston Garden, and four more in Toronto.[5]
