1951–52 NHL season

The NHL season 1951/52, was the 35th season in the National Hockey League. Six teams each played 70 games. The Stanley Cup won by the Detroit Red Wings after a 4-0 win in the final series against the Montreal Canadiens. In this final series was an octopus thrown onto the ice in Detroit for the first time. Highlight in the disappointing season the Chicago Blackhawks was the Hat Trick by Bill Mosienko who scored three goals in just 21 seconds. Less well it was ordered to the gate of the Hawks. After an injury of Harry Lumley, the 46 -year-old Robert Moe had to help out. He had previously in 1934 his last game in the NHL denied.
