Regular SeasonEdit

Gord Pettinger 1937 jersey

Gord Pettinger's 1937-38 jersey.

The Bruins change their jerseys from white with a black "B" to white with the player's number in black, trimmed in gold, on the front and back. The black "B" was moved to the arms. The pants changed from tan to black. The Bruins would wear this jersey style for four years.

Led by Eddie Shore and Tiny Thompson, the Bruins were the best defensive in the league, earning Shore his third Hart Memorial Trophy, Thompson his third Vezina Trophy and both First Team All-Star berths.

Jenkins Bruins

Roger Jenkins played his only Bruins season in 1935-36 in the new jersey.

A changing of the guard up front with the trades of Marty Barry and Nels Stewart resulted in less scoring punch, although the return of Cooney Weiland resulted in him finishing second in scoring on the team. Several other players were added to the team that would fuel the offense for the next decade. Bill Cowley was bought from the defunct St. Louis Eagles who would have an incredible career including winning the scoring title, twice winner of the Hart Memorial Trophy, named to the All Star team five times and during his time with the Bruins, average more than a point a game.

Babe Siebert became the first Bruin to score on a penalty shot when he beat George Hainsworth of the Toronto Maple Leafs on January 18, 1936.

During the March 19, 1936 game versus Toronto Maple Leafs, Thompson became the first goalie to record an assist in which the goalie intentionally passed the puck.

On March 22, 1936, during the last game of the regular season, two Bruins who would become regulars played their first game, Ray Getliffe and Woody Dumart. Both would be part of the Cup win in the 1938-39 season. Goalie Percy Jackson was also in this game, his last one in the NHL. He played 40 minutes while Thompson played 20.

PlayoffsEdit

Toronto Maple Leafs 8, Boston Bruins 6 Edit

For the third time in the last four years, the Bruins and Leafs met in the playoffs. The Leafs would win this series 8-6 on goals in the last year the NHL would have total goals series.

Game 1 saw Tiny Thompson post a shutout and goals by Jim O'Neil, Eddie Shore and Lorne Duguid lead the Bruins to a 3-0 win.

Game 2 saw a confident Bruins team have their hopes dashed by six goal second period by the Leafs. The Bruins jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Bill Cowley. The second period degenerated into a wild affair in which 40 minutes in penalties were called and Shore given a game misconduct. The Leafs capitalized with three power play goals. Without Shore and powered by a hat trick by Charlie Conacher and two goals by Buzz Boll, the Leafs managed a 8-3 win and won the series on by total goals, 8-6. The Leafs would lose in the 1936 Stanley Cup Finals to the Detroit Red Wings.
