Playoffs[edit | edit source]

New York Rangers 6 Goals, Montreal Canadiens 5 Goals[edit | edit source]

In the first round the Canadiens met the New York Rangers, who had placed third in the American Division. The Canadiens lost the two-games total-goals series 5–6 (1–2, 4–4).

In the first game, there was a bench-clearing brawl after Nels Crutchfield cut Bill Cook on the head with his stick. The police were needed to end the brawl. Crutchfield was given a match penalty with no substitution. The Canadiens played for thirteen minutes one man short and two minutes with two men short. Bill Cook returned wearing a helmet over his bandages to score the second Rangers goal.[2]

In the second game, the Canadiens were down 4–1 in the game and tied it with three straight goals in the third. The Canadiens could not get another goal to tie the series.[3]

Video[edit | edit source]

Game 1 of the quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden on March 24, 1935, is remembered for its high level of physicality. In one sequence, an injured Earl Seibert of the New York Rangers is carried off the ice. Later, Nels Crutchfield of the Montreal Canadiens swings his stick into the head of Rangers captain Bill Cook. As a result, Cook collapses to the ice and a bench-clearing brawl ensues. Cook returns to the ice wearing a helmet and scores the game-winning goal in a 2-1 decision. Game 2 was tied 4-4 and the Rangers won the total goals series 6-5.
