Montreal Maroons
1925-26

The 1926 Stanley Cup finals were the first to be played in the legendary Montreal Forum. The Montreal Maroons and netminder Clint Benedict were able to shut out the Victoria Cougars in three of the four games played. This victory for Montreal would mark the end of an incredible era in hockey. From this series on, the NHL took control of the Stanley Cup, which, since 1893, had become the most sought after prize in all of sports. From this year on, only National Hockey League teams could compete for the Stanley Cup.
