In 1912, Stanley Cup trustees declared that the Cup was only to be defended at the end of the champion team's regular season.

When it ended, the Ottawa HC finished in second place, with a 9–9 record, behind the Quebec Bulldogs, who posted a 10–8 record to take the NHA league championship and take over the Stanley Cup. The Bulldogs then went on to sweep the Moncton Victorias of the Maritime Professional Hockey League / MPHL in a best-of-three Cup challenge series, with 9–3 and 8–0 victories.
The 1912–13 NHA season ended with Quebec Bulldogs repeating as league champions. The Bulldogs then played a two-game total goals Stanley Cup challenge series versus the Sydney Millionaires of the Maritime Professional Hockey League / MPHL, with Quebec winning 20 goals to 5.
