Club History - 1920

The twenties belonged to the Senators while the first season of the decade was that of goal scorers. On January 10, Montreal's Newsy Lalonde scored six goals against the Toronto St. Pats. Three weeks later, Quebec's Joe Malone had seven goals to set the all-time NHL record. Meanwhile, on defense, Ottawa's Clint Benedict led the NHL in wins, with 19, and goals-against-average (2.67). He was the only goalie in the league to record any shutouts, with five.

Because the Senators won both halves of the season's split schedule, there were no NHL playoffs. Western opposition for the Cup finals would come from the Seattle Metro-politans. Before the series got underway, one minor problem had to be settled. Seattles' uniforms were striped in red, white and green and Ottawa sweaters were almost identical with red, white and black. Ottawa obligingly agreed to wear plain white jerseys. But that didn't stop the Sens from taking the series three games to two, with Jack Darragh scoring three times in the final game.

 

Joseph (Cy) Denneny


Denneny's accurate shot enabled him to rank among the greats of pro hockey. Born in 1891, his family moved to Cornwall where he began playing hockey in 1897. After playing with the Toronto Shamrocks, he joined the Senators in 1916 and remained with the team until 1928. Later, as a player, coach and assistant manager with Boston, he led the Bruins to the Stanley Cup. Cy became an NHL referee for a year before couching the Ottawa Senators in 1932-33. He died in September 1970.
