Regular season[edit]

A bombshell trade was made with Howie Morenz, Lorne Chabot, and Marty Burke going to Chicago for Leroy Goldsworthy, Roger Jenkins, and Lionel Conacher. The Canadiens then traded Lionel Conacher and Herb Cain to the Maroons for Nels Crutchfield.

Playoffs[edit]

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 the thirteen minutes one man short and two minutes two men short. Bill Cook returned wearing a helmet over his bandages to score the second Rangers goal.[3]

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