PlayoffsEdit

The first Stanley Cup playoff game occurred on March 17, 1894. At the end of the 1894 AHAC season, four teams tied for the AHA championship with records of 5–3–0. This created problems for the AHA governors and the Cup's trustees since there was no tie-breaking system in place. After long negotiation and the withdrawal of Quebec from the championship situation, it was decided that a three-team tournament would take place in Montreal, with Ottawa getting a bye to the finals (being the sole "road" team). The Montreal HC defeated the Montreal Victorias, 3 – 2. Five days later on March 22, 1894, Montreal successfully defended their title with a 3 – 1 win over Ottawa.

Game One: Montreal Hockey Club vs. Montreal VictoriasEdit

Ice condition were described as not very good. The game was considered exciting, however, with Haviland Routh and Billy Barlow starring.

Game Two: Ottawa Hockey Club vs. Montreal Hockey ClubEdit

The final was close and in doubt until Billy Barlow scored the winning goal at 9'00" of the third quarter. According to the Globe report of the game:

"Team play was marred by the softness of the ice. Rough and foul play was frequent, both defences indulging freely in tripping and slashing. Young of Ottawa was injured by James in the second half and although he finished the game without apparent distress, fainted dead away at the end of it. After the match the victors were carried off the rink."[1]
