The 1973 Cup: The first of many for Bowman

In what was a rematch of the 1971 Stanley Cup Finals, the Montreal Canadiens met the Chicago Black Hawks in the final for the second time in three years.

The series pitted the league's top two netminders, Ken Dryden of Montreal and Tony Esposito of Chicago. However this series was far from a defensive battle.

In fact, in four of the six games, the teams combined for ten or more goals. Montreal prevailed winning the Cup in Chicago.

This would be Henri Richard's 11th Cup win, a record, and coach Scotty Bowman's first. Yvan Cournoyer scored 15 goals to capture the Conn Smythe Trophy.
