Here's another excellent article from the Ottawa Citizen which describes that late 20's Rangers team.

25.11.1927 - Ottawa Citizen:

Finnigan will be at his old post despite his injury. Kilrea will play the left boards and he will have none other than Bill Cook, the "rubber legged" sharpshooter, to hold in check. Cook was the leading scorer in the league last year. He is chain lightning on skates, a beautiful player, graceful and finished. With Frank Boucher and his brother Bun, he forms a wonderful combination.

Spectacular Trio

To see this trio charging along is to see how many new rules can be taken advantage of by masters. They are all accomplished in the code. Frank Boucher, who has been a sensation and is the leading scorer in the American section, will pit his skill and poke check against Frank Nighbor. What a duel that should be. These two great rivals, who are puck purveyors par excellence, ply nimble sticks at center ice, and are smart players excelling with headwork.
