2nd-Seeded ’37-’38 Americans Sweep 6th-Seeded ’30-’31 Americans Thanks to Overtime Winners from Gallagher and Anderson

The 2nd-seeded ’37-’38 New York Americans started the series off with a 26-save shutout from Earl Robertson. Nels Stewart scored just over two minutes into the game and an empty-netter from Lorne Carr was all the offense the ’37-’38 Amerks needed. In Game 2, the 6th-seeded ’30-’31 New York Americans held a 3-2 lead after the first period with two goals coming from Billy Burch. Burch then got his hat trick halfway through the second period. However, a goal each from Stewart and Ching Johnson late in the second tied the game up 4-4. After an incredibly even, but scoreless third period, the game went into overtime. The game needed a second overtime and it was defenseman John Gallagher who scored the winner for the ’37-’38 with five plus minutes left in the second overtime period. Eddie Wiseman‘s two goals then led the ’37-’38 Amerks to a 4-1 win in Game 3. The eventual series-deciding Game 4 went to overtime with the ’30-’31 out-chancing the ’37-’38 Amerks nearly two-to-one in the overtime period, but Tom Anderson scored the game-winner for the ’37-’38 Amerks with just over a minute left in the period.
