Game 026 – Canadiens 7, St. Pats 2

Game 026
Canadiens 7, St. Pats 2
Wednesday, March 10, 1920
Aréna Mont-Royal, Montréal, Québec

The Canadiens defeated the St. Patricks 7 to 2 in the final game of the professional hockey season here tonight.

Forbes, the St. Patricks goalkeeper, made his initial appearance in Montréal, and started well against the attacks of Lalonde and Pitre. The play was slow at first, but soon grew interesting, the first period ending a tie of one goal each.

Play degenerated in the second period, and the Canadiens had it all their own way, scoring five goals without a reply.

In the third period the St. Pats forced the play, but could not score, and the game developed into a burlesque, closing with one goal more scored by each side.
