New York won the series 3–1

Coaching and administrative staff:

Stanley Cup engraving

  • New York Rangers included two smaller rings on the Stanley Cup. Due to the size of the first ring, no playoff score was 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 1933. Even with adding 2 rings the New York Rangers did not include any playoff scores on the Stanley Cup.
  • Rangers did not include President William Carey's name on the Stanley Cup. He is only President of a Stanley Cup winning team left off the Cup, since the engraving of winning members became an annual tradition in 1924. John Hammond returned as President of the New York Rangers in off season forcing out Carey and Hoyt; this may be the reason William Carey and Richard Hoyt were left off the Stanley Cup.
