New York Rangers
1927-28

This final series was played entirely in Montreal. The Rangers management made this decision because the circus was in town in New York, forcing them to abandon Madison Square Garden. This proved to be a good decision for New York as they handed the Montreal Maroons a three game to two series loss. In game two, 45-year-old New York Rangers' coach Lester Patrick replaced injured Lorne Chabot in goal. Patrick and the Rangers were able to win that game 2-1 in overtime, but the Rangers promptly signed New York Americans' goaltender Joe Miller the next day. In just their second NHL season, the Rangers captured the Stanley Cup, becoming only the second American team to win the prize. The previous U.S.-based team to claim the championship was the Seattle Metropolitans in 1917. The star of the finals was Frank Boucher, who scored four of the five Ranger goals.
