Stanley Cup Flashbacks: 1933: Rangers Win In OT

The year is 1933. The Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers face-off in a rematch of the 1932 Stanley Cup final.

The two teams remained basically the same. The Leafs had superstars like Busher Jackson, the Big Bomber Charlie Conacher, Gentleman Joe Primeau, King Clancy, Red Horner, Ace Bailey and Baldy Cotton.

The Rangers countered with the best line in hockey - Frank Boucher centering brothers Bill Cook and Bun Cook.

But it was the Ranger's checker Cecil Dillon (pictured) who stole the show in this playoff. He had goals in his first five playoff games including the winner in the opener of the finals against Toronto, adding another in game 3. He was selected one of the games three stars in a 1-0 overtime winner for his work in holding the Primeau-Conacher-Jackson line to no goals in the final.

Rookie Andy Aitkenhead remains one of the least well known goaltenders to have ever backstopped his team to the Stanley Cup.
