1924–25 NHL season

The NHL 1924/25 season was the eighth season of the National Hockey League. Six teams each played 30 games. The final round is certainly one of the most disappointing chapters NHL history. The second and third placed teams from the regular season played in two games to take part in the NHL Finals. Here the Montreal Canadiens prevailed against the Toronto St. Patricks. The team of the Hamilton Tigers felt wronged. Because the league had expanded the Schedule from 24 to 30 games, the club did not pay the promised salary adjustment to $ 200. It refused to participate in the finals and so attracted the third of the regular season, the Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup Finals. In Victoria it was not enough for the Canadiens. They were subject to the Victoria Cougars of the WCHL 3-1, which are so since the founding of the NHL in 1917, the only Stanley Cup winner, who did not come from the NHL. The NHL has been extended by two teams. In addition to the Maroons as the second team in Montreal, the Boston Bruins were the first American team in the NHL. At the same time it was announced that in the coming season, teams will be playing in Pittsburgh and New York. The team of the Hamilton Tigers was thrown out of the league because of the incidents to the NHL finals. In Montreal the Montreal Forum opened. There saw a record crowd of 11,000 spectators the derby of the two teams in the city.
