Engraving Notes

  • 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.
  • The Rangers did not include President William Carey's name on the Stanley Cup. He is the only president of a Stanley Cup winning team left off the Cup, since the engraving of winning members became an annual tradition in 1924.



Arguably the most interesting NHL video of the 1930's. 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.
