1950 Stanley Cup Finals

1950 saw a very interesting Stanley Cup Final series between the Detroit Red Wings and the New York Rangers that went into overtime of the seventh game before Pete Babando scored to give the Red Wings the Stanley Cup.

Background. The red Wings had beaten the three time SC Champion Maple Leafs despite losing Gordie Howe with a skull fracture in the first game of the semi finals. The Rangers had upset the Montreal Canadiens. this proved to be very problematic since the circus was booked into MSG during the time dedicated to the finals so an alternative venue had to be found. The final solution was playing game 1 in Detroit, games 2 & 3 in Toronto at MLG then the remaining games in Detroit.

Game 1:

link includes an interesting column by Dink Carroll about how hockey is played and how the star players are treated.

Game 2:

Game 3:

Game 4:

Game 5:

Games 6 and 7 held Sat and Sunday so they were reported on Monday:
