The correct answer is 1934. The Chicago Blackhawks (then the Black Hawks) won their first Stanley Cup after going 20-17-11 in 48 regular-season games. They finished second in the American Division. Tommy Gorman was their head coach, and he only held the position for two seasons, resigning after this Cup win. En route to the Cup, the Black Hawks defeated the Montreal Canadiens in the quarterfinals, Montreal Maroons in the semifinals and the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Final. Gorman also won the Stanley Cup the next season with the Montreal Maroons.
