The Stanley Cup Final was technically a best of three series. However, it went four games due to two ties. At that time, if a match was tied after one twenty-minute overtime period, the game went in the books as a tie. These were the last ties in Stanley Cup history. Rough play marred the series as in the final game, Hooley Smith cross-checked Boston's Harry Oliver and late in the game Billy Coutu attacked referee Jerry Laflamme and tackled referee Billy Bell. He was subsequently expelled for life. Hooley Smith was suspended for one month of the following season for his attack on Oliver.
The April 13, 1927, game at the Ottawa Auditorium was the last Stanley Cup Final game in Ottawa until the June 2, 2007, game played at Scotiabank Place between the modern Senators and the Anaheim Ducks. It is known that one fan, Russell Williams, attended both games, both won by Ottawa.
