The 1932 Stanley Cup Final was contested by the Toronto Maple Leafs and the New York Rangers. The Maple Leafs were the defending Stanley Cup champions and the Rangers had won the Stanley Cup in 1928. The Maple Leafs won the best-of-five series three games to none, with one tie, to win their second consecutive Stanley Cup. The series was notable for the Maple Leafs' "Kid Line" of Charlie Conacher, Joe Primeau, and Busher Jackson, who combined for 16 points in the series. Game 3 was particularly memorable, as the Maple Leafs scored three goals in the third period to come back from a 3–0 deficit and win the game 4–3. The Maple Leafs would go on to win the Stanley Cup for the second consecutive season and the third time in franchise history.
