1979 Cup Finals: The Collection

Last night's Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins marked the first time in more than 30 years that two Original Six teams are playing for the Stanley Cup. The last time, in 1979, pitted the Rangers against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Rangers, who upset the New York Islanders to advance to the Cup final, won Game 1 against the Canadiens, 4-1, at the Montreal Forum. Unfortunately, the Blueshirts would lose the next four games of the series.

Check out these photos from the 1979 series, then share your thoughts on this year being the first Original Six matchup in more than 30 years.
