New York Rangers 6, Detroit Red Wings 3[edit | edit source]

New York Rangers 3, Toronto Maple Leafs 1[edit | edit source]

The Rangers, led by brothers Bill and Bun Cook on the right and left wings, respectively, and Frank Boucher at center, would defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1932–33 best-of-five finals, three games to one, to win their second Stanley Cup, exacting revenge on the Leafs' "Kid line" of Busher Jackson, Joe Primeau, and Charlie Conacher.

After game one, the Rangers would vacate Madison Square Garden for the circus. Bill Cook would become the first player to score a Cup-winning goal in overtime. Rookie goalie Andy Aitkenhead would post the fourth shutout by a rookie in the finals.

Stanley Cup Engraving

  • New York Rangers included two smaller rings on the Stanley Cup. Due to the size of the first ring, no playoff score were included. On the Second ring they honored Lester Patrick (See 1934 Chicago Black Hawks for the wording.) Lester Patrick's name was put on the Stanley Cup twice in 1934.
  • Rangers did not include President William Carey's name on the Stanley Cup engraving. He is only President of a Stanley Cup winning team left off the Cup, since the engraving of winning members became an annual tradition in 1924.

Video[edit | edit source]

Arguably the most interesting NHL video of the 1930's. 1933 Finals Game 4 highlights of all periods of play including the Cup winning goal by Bill Cook in overtime. Foster Hewitt provides the play-by-play and interviews Conn Smythe, Dick Irvin, Busher Jackson, Charlie Conacher, King Clancy and Red Horner in the dressing room during the first intermission. Horner played with a broken right hand and shows Hewitt his cast and how he was able to grip his stick. Hewitt then interviews the Rangers in their dressing room in the second intermission.
