So Mickey had some injuries and an off year, yet was still amongst the leagues leading scorers. What's the point?

The Calgary Herald, March 8, 1923 - Victoria got a shock when they saw the Maroons line up to combat the Cougars at their own game. Much of the success of Victoria has been due to the two-men attack and the three-man defense which has been maintained during the last two months. Vancouver has been experimenting with this style for the last ten days, and they had it perfected in time for tonight's battle. They used Mickey MacKay as the third defense man, and he functioned in the form that made him famous as a rover in the days of seven-man hockey. Whenever the Cougars went flying through and managed to evade the two forwards, they seemed lost when they struck the Vancouver defense. There was always someone in the way no matter which route they took.
