National Hockey League (NHL) Season Review 1964-1965

National Hockey League (NHL) Season Review 1964-1965

The Detroit Red Wings won the NHL regular season, led by Roger Crozier's performance in goal, winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie. Red Wings Norm Ullman had 42 goals to lead the league and finished second to Chicago's Stan Mikita in total scoring.

The Canadiens finished second, the Blackhawks in third, and the Toronto Maple Leafs, who had won the Stanley Cup three straight years, finished fourth.

In the playoffs Montreal eliminated Toronto in six games while the Blackhawks defeated the Red Qings in a seven-game series.

In the finals Montreal won the first two games of the final at home and Chicago evened the series with two home victories. Game 5 was a 6-0 blowout for the Canadiens, but the Blackhaws won game six. In Game 7 at Montreal, the Canadiens won, 4-0, to claim the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1960.

Jean Beliveau, who scored three game-winning goals against Chicago, became the first winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the final series.
