Finishing only one win shy of another 60 win regular season, Montreal only needed nine games to reach the Stanley Cup Finals.

Montreal's hard line defenseman and Conn Smythe winner Larry Robinson tied Guy Lafleur for the overall points lead in the playoffs. Vezina winner Ken Dryden was stellar in the finals, surrendering a league low 1.89 goals against average.

Montreal defeated Boston in six games to win their third straight, and 21st Stanley Cup in total. The silverware spree for the Habs continued at season's end. Lafleur claimed the Hart, Art Ross and Pearson awards, captain Bob Gainey won the first ever Selke Trophy, and Dryden, as mentioned, won the Vezina, sharing the honour with Michel Larocque.
