Club History - 1928

The 1927-28 season marked the beginning of the end of the Ottawa Senators. Several players retired, attendance started to drop and financial woes were just around the corner for the once powerful Senators. But Alex Connell would shed some much-needed light on the Sens when he pulled together an amazing string of six straight shutouts - more than 440 minutes of scoreless hockey - en route to an outstanding 1.30 average.

In a playoff game between the Rangers and the Maroons, netminder Lorne Chabot was hit by a puck and had to be carried off the ice. Without a substitute, 44-year old Lester Patrick filled in for the injured goalie. The Rangers protected Patrick like fine China who made 18 saves, allowing only one goal, as his Rangers sailed to an overtime win. Three games later, the Cup belonged to the Rangers.


John James (Jack) Adams


One of the most successful executives in the history of the NHL, Jack Adams was an outstanding player before joining Detroit in 1927 as manager-coach. Adams turned pro in 1918 with Toronto and won the Stanley Cup that same year. A decade later, wearing a Senators' jersey, he won another Cup. As an executive, he developed the hockey farm system and led his Red Wings to a string of seven staight championships and a total of seven Stanley cups. Adams was named president of the Central Pro League in 1962. He died at his desk on May 1, 1968.
