Who won the Stanley Cup in 1957?

Stanley Cup Finals/Championship 1957 Canadiens de Montréal The Montreal Canadiens won the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in team history, defeating the Boston Bruins, who had upset the Detroit Red Wings and averted a fourth consecutive Montreal-Detroit championship series. In game seven at Boston's Civic Center, Jean Béliveau scored three goals to lead his team to its first championship in five years.

The Canadiens were led by their brilliant 25-year-old star center, Jean Béliveau, who was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs. Béliveau had 49 points (20 goals, 29 assists) in 24 games during the postseason. His performance earned him the title of "King Cheeks" from fans across Canada. Previously known as "Le Gros Billard", Béliveau had already become one of the greatest players in hockey history. A four-time scoring champion, he helped lead the Canadiens to the finals in five consecutive seasons (1954-57). During that period the club won three straight Stanley Cups without losing a game. Béliveau died in January 1968 after suffering multiple injuries in a car accident near his home in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec.

In 1957 Béliveau joined an exclusive group of players who have scored at least 20 goals in each of their first ten NHL seasons.

When was the last time the original six won the Stanley Cup?

Indeed, the 1979 Stanley Cup Finals between the Canadiens and Rangers were the final Final containing any Original Six club until 1986 (when the Canadiens won the Cup), and the only all-Original Six Final until Chicago's victory over Boston in 2013. The Bruins and Blackhawks are the only other teams to have competed in both finals.

The Canadiens defeated the Maple Leafs 4 games to 1. This is also the only time that has happened to either team. It was also the first time since 1944 that two former Montreal stars were on one team: Dickie Moore played for Toronto and Max Kaminsky for Montreal. The series was also notable for being the first ever held at Madison Square Garden. The Canadiens had never before lost a game there.

In the second round, the Canadiens took on the Washington Capitals. This was the first playoff meeting between the two teams. It was also the first postseason series between two former Canadian teams. The Canadiens won this series in five games. They then went on to beat the Flyers in seven games to win their fourth championship in five years. This made them the first NHL team to win four championships in five years. The New York Islanders have since duplicated this feat.

Before 1967, when the NHL added three more teams, no reigning champion had been forced to go through an entire season without winning another title.

How many Stanley Cups did the original six win?

During the Original Six era, Montreal won 10 of the 25 Stanley Cups; Toronto won nine, and Detroit won five. During this time period, Chicago won only one Stanley Cup, in 1961, while Boston and New York did not.

The first six seasons of the NHL were very competitive, with each team winning about half of their games. The 1927-28 Montreal Canadiens are considered by many to be the first true championship team, as they finished first in the league standings. The following season, the Ottawa Senators joined the NHL, and they have never been able'to catch up with the big teams.

In 1932-33, the Detroit Red Wings began the modern era by defeating Montreal in the final game of the regular season to claim the title. From then on, there would be no more close calls for the rest of the decade.

The 1950's were a remarkable period for hockey - the top four teams all made the finals at least once, and two of them (Toronto and Detroit) won it all twice. The 1972-73 New York Islanders are the only team to have never won the cup. They have never made it to the finals since their inception in 1973.

When did Detroit win the Stanley Cup for the first time?

Detroit won the Stanley Cup in four games for the sixth time in team history and for the first time since 1955; Philadelphia had not won since 1975. The Red Wings' Bill Gadsby was awarded the first of two consecutive Vezina Trophies as the best goalie in hockey. The 1955 series against Chicago is now known as the "Red Wing Revival." Detroit had been defeated by Chicago in six games in 1947 and 1951. This year's series was played at three different sites: Philadelphia, Boston, and Detroit. In Game 1 of the Finals, held at the Spectrum, Philadelphia took a 1-0 lead into the third period before Bill Gadsby made 26 saves as Detroit scored three times to win 4-1.

The Red Wings went on to beat Boston 4-3 in Game 2 at The Forum and then shut out the Bruins 3-0 in Game 3. With the series shifting to Joe Louis Arena, the Red Wings took a 1-0 lead in the first period before Boston evened the score at 1-1 late in the second period. But then Gerry Cheevers scored twice more in the third period as Detroit won 4-1 to take a 2-1 series lead.

Has any team won the Stanley Cup in 16 games?

(This was the lone comeback in Stanley Cup history.) Up 5-1 with 9:26 left in the third period, the New York Rangers scored four straight goals to win the game 6-5 and tie the series at 1-1.

The Chicago Black Hawks had a chance to complete the only perfect season in NHL history but lost the final game of the series 7-4 on May 11, 1995. The loss ended the season at 100 percent.

The Hartford Whalers were the first NHL team to reach the playoffs after a two-year absence when they made the postseason in 1997 after not playing since 1994. They went on to lose to the Washington Capitals in six games.

The Colorado Avalanche are the most recent team to win a Game 7 on the road come back from a 3-0 deficit to win the series. They did it against the San Jose Sharks in seven games in 2001. Before that last night's winner came into the league, no team had ever come back from three goals down to win a playoff game.

The Boston Bruins are one of two remaining Cup champions who have not been eliminated yet (the other being the Vancouver Canucks).

Who has the most Stanley Cup final appearances?

The Stanley Cup-winning Montreal Canadiens The Montreal Canadiens have won the Stanley Cup more times than any other team, with a total of 24. They are also the only current franchise to have won the cup three years in a row.

The Toronto Maple Leafs The Chicago Black Hawks The Philadelphia Flyers The Washington Capitals These are all of the current franchises to have played in a final. Only two have been successful in their attempts: the Montreal Canadiens and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In fact, no other team has even made it to the finals twice since the NHL began holding championship series at the end of the season in 1957. The Montreal Canadiens have now won more games than any other team over the last six seasons, but they've never gotten past the second round because they always lose in seven games to the eventual champion.

After their first two finals appearances in 1934 and 1935, when they lost to Boston Bruins both times, the Canadiens didn't win another trophy until 1959, when they defeated St. Louis Blues in five games. Since then, there hasn't been a single year when anyone else has come close to winning the cup.

In fact, no one has won more than two championships in this era.
