Offseason

Regular season

In the course of playing a 0-0 tie against the New York Americans on the 3rd of January 1932, the Bruins shot the puck the length of the ice 87 times to relieve pressure on their goal. To stop this becoming a regular tactic, the icing rule was introduced into the NHL later in the decade.1
