Just like the ’76-’77 Cleveland Barons, the ’74-’75 Kansas City Scouts will now be their franchises representative for all three of the first three Ultimate NHL Playoffs. Behind a hat trick from Ed Gilbert, the ’74-’75 Scouts took Game 1 by a score of  5-4 as each goaltender made over 50 saves, which would happen quite often over the six game series. Game 2 as a much more lopsided affair as the ’74-’75 Scouts won 6-1 to take a 2-0 series lead. Goalie Peter McDuffe allowed just one goal on 54 shots against for a .981 save percentage while Guy Charron led the way offensively with a goal and two assists. The ’75-’76 Scouts got on the board with a 3-2 win in Game 3. Gary Croteau scored in the final minute of regulation to break a 2-2 tie to win the game. Denis Herron allowed two goals on 57 shots in the victory. In Game 4, the ’74-’75 Scouts led 4-2 after two periods, but the ’75-’76 Scouts tied it up at four just four and a half minutes into the final period of regulation. It remained tied at four until Wilf Paiement scored at the 14:09 mark of overtime for the ’74-’75 Scouts, his third of the game. It was the ’75-’76 Scouts who won in overtime in the following game as Croteau put home a rebound to extend the series to a Game 6. However, two goals from Charron in the final minutes of Game 6 broke a 4-4 tie and won the game and the series for the ’74-’75 Scouts.
