Top 10 - Best starts after 30 games
1927-28 (44 points)

At a time when the schedule was comprised of just 44 games, head coach Cecil Hart had the winning touch as his squad posted a record of 19-5-6 through 30 games. One thing is certain, Hart could count on the services of the dependable George Hainsworth, who captured the Vezina Trophy after posting 13 shutouts and a 1.05 goals against average. It was also during that season that Howie Morenz became the first NHL player to hit the 50-point mark in one season.
