The Philadelphia Quakers were the remains of the Pittsburgh Pirates, but only for a single season. Like many of the lower seeds in this tournament that did not last very long, they lost a lot of money. However, this ’30-’31 Quakers team put up a fight in their first round matchup.

1st Round:

Defeated by 17th-seeded ’98-’99 Carolina Hurricanes, 4-2, after leading 2-1

Under the direction of Cooper Smeaton, the ’30-’31 Quakers posted a 4-36-4 record, which was good for a staggering 12 points and 5th in the American Division. Philadelphia finished ninth in the league out of 10 teams in goals for with 76 (1.73/game) and dead last in goals against with 184 (4.18/game).Hockey Reference ranked the Quakers’ strength of schedule as the toughest in the league, and their SRS rating system had the Quakers ranked last overall in the league. The ’30-’31 Quakers missed the playoffs by 35 points, which is almost three times as many points as they totaled during the season.

Gerry Lowrey was the team’s leading scorer with 27 points. Hib Milks was second with 23 while Syd Howe and Wally Kilrea were tied for third with 20 points a piece. Milks was the team’s leading goal-scorer with 17. Lowrey was the only other player to reach double digits in goals with his 13. Meanwhile, Lowrey, Kilrea and Howe were the only players to reach double digits in assists with 14, 12 and 11, respectively. In net, the Quakers had three players make appearances with Wilf Cude being the #1. He made 30 appearances and posted a 4.22 goals against average with the team’s only shutout. Backup Joe Miller made 12 appearances and posted a 3.81 goals against average.

Well, the team recap’s are done…….finally. Those last few ones were tough to get through because there’s not much to talk about. Tomorrow I’m gonna post a new update on what’s coming up next.
