The 1922 Stanley Cup Finals was contested by the National Hockey League (NHL) champion Toronto St. Patricks and the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) champion Vancouver Millionaires. The St. Pats defeated Vancouver three games to two in the best-of-five game series to win their only Stanley Cup as the St. Pats.
Paths to the Finals
Vancouver finished second overall in the 1921–22 PCHA regular season standings with a 12–12 record. However, they then went on to defeat the 12–11–1 first place Seattle Metropolitans in the PCHA championship series, winning both games by 1–0.
After defeating the WCHL's Regina Capitals in the preliminary series, the PCHA's Vancouver Millionaires travelled to Toronto for the Final.
A fifth and deciding game five was necessary in this series to determine who would win the Cup. After Vancouver won game one, 4–3, Babe Dye scored 4:50 into overtime of game two to give Toronto a 2–1 win. Then in game three, goaltender Hugh Lehman led the Millionaires to a 3–0 shutout win. In this game, star defenceman Harry Cameron suffered a separated shoulder and Toronto asked Frank Patrick for the use of Ottawa defenceman Eddie Gerard and Patrick permitted it. The St. Patricks tied the series in game four, 6–0, as John Ross Roach became the first rookie goaltender to record a Stanley Cup shutout. After this game, Patrick ruled Gerard ineligible. Game five belonged to Toronto as Dye scored four goals in a 5–1 victory to clinch the Cup.
For the series, Dye scored nine of the St. Pats' 16 goals, while Roach posted a 1.80 goals-against average.
|Toronto won series 3–2|
