The 1942 Stanley Cup Final was a best-of-seven series between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings. After losing the first three games, the Maple Leafs won the next four to win the series 4–3, winning their fourth Stanley Cup.
Toronto defeated the New York Rangers in a best-of-seven 4–2 to advance to the finals. The Red Wings had to play two best-of three series; winning 3–1 against the Montreal Canadiens, and 2–0 against the Boston Bruins.
This was the series of the remarkable comeback. Toronto came back from a 3–0 deficit to win the best-of-seven series (the only such occurrence in a Stanley Cup Final series as of 2008). Game seven in Toronto was the first time a crowd of over 16,000 attended a hockey game in Canada.
