Malone started off the game with his first goal at the 6:50 mark of the first period followed by Reg Noble evening the score at 1-1 with a goal at the halfway mark of the period. Quebec then added a pair of goals at 15:25 and 16:05 before Toronto responded with their second goal at 17:10 as the first period ended with the score at 3-2 for Quebec and Malone having scored just once, giving little indication of what was to follow...
Same has he did in the first period, Malone scored the first goal of the second, needing just 55 seconds to beat Mike Mitchell for the second time. Corb Denneny responded with a St. Patricks goal four minutes later, but Malone completed his hat trick at 10:18 to restore the Bulldogs two goal margin. Noble scored again for Toronto at 13:58 but Malone's fourth goal of the game and third of the period came at 18:18 for a 6-4 Quebec lead after two periods.
Howard Lockhart replaced Mitchell in goal for Toronto, who pulled back to within one yet again when Mickey Roach scored at 2:40. Quebec replied yet again at 4:10 only to have the St. Patricks Cully Wilson score just 30 seconds later to make the score 7-6 for Quebec. Lockhart had managed to keep the red hot Malone off the scoreboard for the first half of the third period, but at exact the 10 minute mark, Malone scored his fifth goal of the night which was followed by completing his second hat trick with his sixth goal just two minutes later. With just 45 seconds left in the game, Malone entered the NHL record books with his seventh goal of the night at third of the period against Lockhart for a final score of 10-6. During the game, Malone actually had an eighth goal negated by an offside call.
