Montreal Canadians win the Stanley Cup in 1931

All Stars

The 1931 Stanley Cup Finals was played between the Montreal Canadiens and the Chicago Black Hawks, making their first Stanley Cup final appearance. The Canadiens, defending champions won the series to become the second NHL team to repeat as champion. Former player and now coach, Chicago's Dick Irvin, made his Finals coaching debut against the team he would later coach to three Stanley Cup titles.

Over 18,000 fans packed Chicago Stadium for game two to set a record for largest attendance in hockey history to that time. Triple overtime game three of the series was (at the time) the longest game in Stanley Cup final history, and today remains the fourth longest game in Stanley Cup final history at 113:50.

For game five, Foster Hewitt came to Montreal to make the radio broadcast play-by-play and transmission lines carried his broadcast to radio stations across Canada. Interest was so high that Montrealers in the thousands lined up for end zone and standing room tickets. Johnny Gagnon opened the scoring in the second period and Howie Morenz scored an insurance goal in the third period. It ended a nine-game goalless streak for Morenz.
