Marty Barry was a big and strong centre who played eleven years in the N.H.L., during which time he was on three championship teams and two Stanley Cup Winners. A polished stickhandler, he also acted as a policeman and drew a fair number of penalties.

All-Star center led the playoffs in points and assists (4-7-11) and his line with Herb Lewis and Hec Kilrea dominated almost every game. Barry had four assists in the opening 4-0 win over Canadiens, was a star scoring his teams only goal in game three, then came up with the winners in game three and five in the finals over NY Rangers. Starred in the final two games as Detroit were playing without Doug Young, Larry Aurie, Orville Roulston, Normie Smith and Ebbie Goodfellow missed game four against the Rangers.

There are numerous other remarkable players today. Marty Barry isn't far removed from the front rank. Indeed many competent critics rate the Detroit center smack up there.

Barry, big and strong and a hard worker, is as fine a playmaker as he is a defensive player. He has played left wing during the greater part of his career, but is the clever, snappy type of center who feeds his wings exceptionally well.

Barry was not to be denied when he took the puck at his own blue-line midway in the third period after passes from Syd Howe and Johnny Sorrell. In a tremendous burst of speed, without faltering in his headlong rush, he split the defense between "Ott" Heller and Art Coulter. At the penalty circle he swerved to the left out of Coulter's reach and from an amazing sharp angle, rifled a swift drive into the far side of the net. Kerr never had a chance as the puck streaked past him to bite into the net just inside the post.

The goal prolonged the Stanley Cup finals to the fifth game to be played here Thursday night.

Barry's shot turned 13,515 customers who had settled back in anticipation of an overtime game, into a madly cheering throng tossing papers and programs to the ice.

Marty Barry, Bruin's Center, A Most Aggressive Player

The Boston Bruin's center, Marty Barry, is one of the most aggressive players in the National Hockey League. He has assisted his mates scores of times this season in penetrating opponents' defense zones and has scored several goals himself.

The stick wizardry of big Marty Barry, who scored two goals and an assist, and the phenomenal net-minding of Rookie Earl Robertson, who shut out the aggressive, dangerous New York Rangers for the second time, 3 to 0, stood out as the Detroit wound up a successful five game defense of the 44-year-old cup before 14,102 madly cheering spectators last night.

Marty Barry, Larry Aurie, and Herb Lewis give the Red Wings one of the best forward lines in the game. It is not only a high scoring array, but one of the finest defensive combinations.

Two newcomers to the Canadiens, Earl Robinson and Marty Barry, combined on the winning goal which came in the ninth minute of the final period. Breaking away from a Boston gang attack Barry shot a rink-wide pass to Robinson who banged in a hard shot at Frankie Brimsek and then drove home the rebound.

Giesebrecht took a beautiful double relay from Marty Barry and Carl Liscombe directly in front of the Toronto net and beat Goalie "Turk" Broda with a smash into the corner.

In the last minute, Aurie and Lewis got away clear, with Marty Barry. The big center gave Aurie a pass to the right of the net, and his cross-fire shot drove deeply into the twine.

Marty Barry continued to set the pace as the "bad boy" of the league, having spend 24 minutes in the penalty box.

Larry Aurie accounted for both Detroit scores, the first on a smart passing play with Marty Barry and the second with a long distance shot from almost the blueline that Roy Worters lost in a sea of legs.

Herbie Lewis and Marty Barry were responsible for the goal that gave Wings the decision. After four minutes of overtime they beat the Leaf defence, Lewis taking a smart pass from Barry for the goal.
