The Dawson City Challenge Tale Is B.S.
Known as the "Silver Seven," the Ottawa Senators were Ontario's first hockey club and remembered for their very physical play. They were also part of the fabled Dawson City challenge of 1905, which is said to be the most incredible of Stanley Cup standoffs. But considering the final score of 23-2 in favor of the Senators, the game may have actually been nothing memorable after all. Rumor has it that the only reason Dawson City even played was because the team's owner was good friends with then-interior minister Clifford Sifton.
