The 5th-seeded ’38-’39 New York Americans found themselves down 2-0 very early in Game 1. The upset-minded, 8th-seeded ’31-’32 New York Americans scored twice two minutes and 44 seconds into the opening frame. However, the ’38-’39 Amerks tied the game up by the end of the first period. Thanks to a goal from Tom Anderson in the second and a goal from Eddie Wiseman in the third, the ’38-’39 Amerks took Game 1. The ’31-’32 Amerks got another early lead in Game 2, but held it this time for a 6-1 win. Charley McVeigh led the way with two goals. In Game 3, an Art Jackson goal late in the second period turned out to be the game-winner for the ’38-’39 Amerks. Earl Robertson then pitched a 45-save shutout for the ’38-’39 Amerks in Game 4 with two goals from Jackson and Sweeney Schriner. With Game 5 tied more than halfway through the third period, Lorne Carr scored on the PP to give the ’38-’39 Amerks a 3-2 lead and a Nels Stewart empty-netter sealed the win and the series.
