The 1932–33 Boston Bruins season was the Bruins' 8th season in the NHL. The Bruins finished last in the American Division and did not qualify for the playoffs.

Regular SeasonEdit

The season saw a great deal of line-up instability with 25 different players suiting up for the Bruins. This included two different goalies, Wilf Cude and Percy Jackson, spelling in for Tiny Thompson who missed games for the first time in his career.

Percy Jackson-1932

Percy Jackson subbed for Tiny Thompson in January 1932.

Goal scoring was down for the Bruins from previous seasons and they suffered through stretches without wins including a miserable January that saw only one win (though 5 ties).

During the March 15, 1932 game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs, goalie Lorne Chabot took a first period tripping penalty. Rules at the time required that Chabot serve his time in the penalty box for the full two minutes, regardless of whether the opposing time scored on the power play. Three different Leafs, King Clancy, Red Horner and Alex Levinsky all took turns in goal with no success as the Bruins scored three power play goals during the penalty. Marty Barry had two while George Owen potted the other.

The Montreal Maroons were very interested in obtaining Eddie Shore from Boston. Even though James Strachan, president of the Maroons, said he was willing to pay up to $40,000 for Shore, there was no deal.

TriviaEdit

  • Tiny Thompson went down in the January 26, 1932 game versus the Montreal Maroons and only played 18 minutes. Percy Jackson played the remaining 42 minutes but Thompson took the loss as the Bruins were trailing 3-0 when he was replaced. Thompson missed the next 4 games as Jackson played 2 games (a win and a loss), followed by Wilf Cude playing 2 games (including a February 4, 1932 5-0 shutout of the New York Americans and a 6-0 loss to the Leafs). Thompson returned February 9, 1932 to beat the New York Rangers 2-1.
