The 1924-25 NHL season was the eighth season in the National Hockey League . Six teams played 30 games each. The finals are certainly one of the most disappointing chapters in NHL history. The second and third place finishers of the regular season played in two games to participate in the NHL finals. Here the Montréal Canadiens prevailed against the Toronto St. Patricks . The Hamilton Tigers team felt they had been treated unfairly. Since the league had expanded the schedule from 24 to 30 games, the club did not pay the promised $ 200 adjustment in salaries. They refused to take part in the finals and so the third of the regular season, the Montréal Canadiens, moved into the Stanley Cup finals. In Victoria there was not enough for the Canadiens. They lost 3-1 to the Victoria Cougars from the WCHL, making them the only Stanley Cup winner who did not come from the NHL since the NHL was founded in 1917 . The NHL was expanded to include two teams. In addition to the Maroons as the second team in Montreal, the Boston Bruins came as the first American team in the NHL. At the same time it was announced that teams in Pittsburgh and New York will also play in the coming season. The team of the Hamilton Tigers was kicked out of the league because of the incidents at the NHL final. The Montreal Forum opened in Montreal. A record crowd of 11,000 spectators saw the derby between the city's two teams there.
