2nd-Seeded ’37-’38 Americans Defeat 5th-Seeded ’38-’39 Americans in Five Games; Will Represent Extinct New York Franchise in UNP Again

Nels Stewart was a dynamo in Game 1 for the ’37-’38 New York Americans. He tallied four assists, with three primary assists, and was a +4 as the ’37-’38 Amerks won 4-2. Eddie Wiseman scored two of the four goals. In Game 2, the ’38-’39 New York Americans scored first thanks to Lorne Carr and then Carr scored early in the third to give them a 2-1 lead. However, Wiseman scored halfway through the third to eventually force overtime. Art Chapman then scored for the ’38-’39 Amerks with just 12 seconds left to take a 2-0 series lead. Stewart took charge again in Game 3 for the ’37-’38 Amerks. He registered a hat trick as the ’37-’38 Amerks opened up a 3-0 series lead with a 5-2 win in Game 3. Then, in Game 4, the ’38-’39 Amerks scored three goals in a span of about three and a half minutes to take a 3-1 lead. However, the ’38-’39 Amerks needed a PP goal in the final minute from Carr to tie the game at four and force another overtime. Defenseman Allan Murray won Game 4 in overtime just under five minutes into the overtime period for the ’38-’39 Amerks. Two goals from Wiseman, yet again, led the ’37-’38 Amerks to a 5-3 win in Game 5 to clinch a spot in the 2015 Ultimate NHL Playoff.
