The Quebec Bulldogs won two Stanley Cups before the NHL formed. However, they lasted just one season in the early NHL era and it was the ’19-’20 season.

1st Round:

Swept by 19th-seeded ’88-’89 Calgary Flames, 4-0

The ’19-’20 regular season was split into two halves. The Bulldogs finished both halves with 2-10 records to finish with a combined 4-20-0 record, which was good for, duh, eight points and 4th in the league. The NHL consisted of only the Ottawa Senators, the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto St. Patricks and Quebec, of course. The Bulldogs finished last in goals with 91 (3.79/game) and last in goals against with 177 (7.38/game). Hockey Reference ranked the Bulldogs’ strength of schedule as the toughest in the league, and their SRS rating system had the Bulldogs ranked worst team in the league. I believe the playoff system went like this: the winner of the two halves faced each other to win the league and that winner faced off against the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) for the Stanley Cup. Naturally, the ’19-’20 Bulldogs had no postseason.

The ’19-’20 Bulldogs did have the league’s top goal-scorer in Joe Malone with 39 goals in the 24 games. Malone was also the team’s leading assist-getter with 10 and scorer with 49. George Carey was second in assists and points with 9 and 20, respectively. Tommy McCarthy was second on the team in goals with 12. The Bulldogs relived heavily on 19-year-old Frank Brophy in net. He appeared in 21 of the 24 games, but on such a bad team his numbers were horrific. He posted a 7.11 goals against average, which is the lowest of the three players to appear in net for the Bulldogs during the season.

Up next is the #47 seed, the ’34-’35 St. Louis Eagles!
