Three Bears: Boston stalwarts, left to right, Eddie Shore, George Owen, and Lionel Hitchman pose for the camera during the 1928-29 season. “The Rangers fought like tigers, ripping the Bruins to shreds with their rushes,” The New York Times reported from a 2-1 Bruins’ win that year, “but Hitchman and Shore spoiled every drive by stealing the disk with timely poke-checks.” (Photo: Courtesy of Boston Public Library, Leslie Jones Collection).
