Expansion Teams

By the time Minnesota won game 2 the expansion teams were 0 - 17 in the playoffs against the established teams.

Furthermore, Minnesota had seven players who had come thru the Montreal system - Gump Worsley(4), Cesare Maniago, Ted Harris(4), Gord Labossiere, Danny Grant(1), Judes Drouin, Bobby Rousseau(4) contributing to 13 Stanley Cups. With other forwards who could skate with the Canadiens better than the other expansion teams.

During the season the North Stars had a 1W-3L-2T record against the Canadiens, so the results were not surprising.
