Quest for the Cup
A History of the Stanley Cup Finals, 1893-2001Book - 2001
The crowning event of the National Hockey League season is the Stanley Cup final. After months of regular season play, and weeks of intense playoff competition, two battered and exhausted teams clash for the Stanley Cup. The Quest for the Cup is a 304-page celebration of hockey's ultimate series that traces the Stanley Cup finals through five great eras of hockey: - The birth of the game from 1892 to 1926 - The 30s and 40s when Georges Vezina, Lionel Conacher and Howie Morenz were icons of the game - 1946 -1967, the era of epic Leafs versus Canadiens battles - 1968 -1983, when the Bruins and Flyers won with brawn before the Canadiens took over with grace - The modern era, where the Oilers, Penguins, Red Wings and Devils have won multiple cups With more than 350 full-colour and black and white photographs, Quest for the Cup traces the Stanley Cup finals from their beginnings as a showcase of North American hockey talent, to their current status as the pinnacle event of international hockey.
