1918: In the first NHL championship playoffs, the Toronto Hockey Club loses the second game of a two-game series to the Montreal Canadiens 4-3, but win the championship on overall goals. Combined with their 7-3 win on March 11, Toronto outscored Montreal 10-7. Toronto advanced to play for the Stanley Cup, beating the Pacific Coast Hockey Association champion Vancouver Millionaires three games to two to win the cup. The Toronto Hockey Club would be renamed the Toronto Arenas the following season and eventually became the team known today as the Toronto Maple Leafs.
