The highest scoring series in Minto Cup history?
1940 Best of Five between the Orillia Terriers and BC All-Stars which had 179 total goals. Orillia won with an amazing 96 goals in 5 games.
The Peterborough PCOs and Richmond Roadrunners combined 170 goals in 1971 in a seven game series won by the Roadrunners (meep, meep)
How many times has the Minto Cup winner been outscored in a series?
1937 Vancouver Bluebirds outscore the Orillia Terriers 63-54 but lose the series 3 games to 2.
1973 Richmond Roadrunners outscore the Peterborough PCOs 77-66 but lose in seven games.
1994 Brampton Excelsiors outscore the New Westminster Salmonbellies 53-42 but also lose in seven games.
Any ties in the Minto Cup?
Why yes there have been two of them.
In 1949 the BC All-Stars tied the St. Catharines Athletics and in 1965 the New Westminster Salmonbellies tied the Oshawa Green Gaels.
What are the fewest goals against in a Best of Seven series?
Many will guess the Orangeville Northmen and they would be close as they only allowed 24 goals in their 1995 sweep of New West. However the Brampton Excelsiors own that distinction with 20 goals against in their 1958 sweep of the Victoria Shamrocks.
