Toronto defeated Boston Bruins in a best-of-five 3–0 to advance to the finals. The Black Hawks had to play two best-of three series; winning 2–1 against Montreal Canadiens, and 2–1 against the New York Americans.
Chicago lost their regular goaltender during the playoffs and started Alfie Moore in game one. Frank Calder ruled that Moore was ineligible, but allowed the victory. Paul Goodman played and lost game two. The regular goalie Mike Karakas returned for games three and four wearing a steel toe to protect his foot.
Chicago set a record with eight Americans and also set a record for attendance with 18,497 in game four. It was the last time that a Chicago team would win a championship at Chicago Stadium until the Chicago Bulls won their second straight NBA championship in 1992.
