The 1916 Stanley Cup Final was played between the National Hockey Association (NHA) champion Montreal Canadiens and the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) champion Portland Rosebuds. This was the first time that a best-of-five Cup championship went the distance. Also, the Rosebuds were the first team based in the United States to play for the Stanley Cup. The Canadiens defeated the Rosebuds three games to two in the best-of-five game series.
Goldie Prodgers would score the Stanley Cup winning goal at 16:45 of the 3rd period, in a tight 2 to 1 victory for the Canadiens.
This would be the first Stanley Cup championship for the Montreal Canadiens.
All 5 games were played at the Montreal Arena (Westmount Arena).
