The two-time Stanley Cup champion Senators, who seemed unstoppable on their way to a third championship, added Hamby Shore to their line-up.
The Senators downed the Wanderers 9-3 at Ottawa on January 7th. The meeting between the two teams on February 11th was a terrific struggle before 5,500 fans. The match was described in one Montreal paper as a "saturnalia of butchery". Bert Strachan knocked out the great McGee, who although badly cut about the head, scored three goals and was largely instrumental in Ottawa's triumph.
Dawson City Klondikes
The schedule ended with Ottawa winning the championship. Ottawa went on to defend their coveted prize against a team from Dawson City that travelled some 4,000 miles to play the Sens. But the challenge turned out to be a laugher with Ottawa winning 9-2 and 23-2, with Frank McGee scoring, a record, 14 goals in the second game.
