The 1943 Stanley Cup Final was a best-of-seven series between the Detroit Red Wings and the Boston Bruins. The Red Wings won the series 4-0, becoming the first team to sweep the Stanley Cup Final since the NHL adopted the best-of-seven format in 1939. The Red Wings were led by the “Production Line” of Gordie Howe, Sid Abel, and Ted Lindsay, which combined for 19 points in the series. Detroit goaltender Johnny Mowers was also instrumental in the series, recording two shutouts and allowing only five goals in four games. Boston was led by Milt Schmidt, who scored three of the Bruins’ five goals in the series. The Red Wings won their fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history, and their first since 1936.
