The Montreal Gazette - April 9th, 1946:

Quote:
Which brings us back to the series again. If there has ever been any better goaltending exhibited in a Stanley Cup final than that offered by Bill Durnan and Frankie Brimsek, no one can recall it. These two are high on the list of all-time great netminders. They are largely responsible for the low scores and the tenseness of the games.
- there's some other information in there about the Cup finals series, but nothing else of any great interest.

- more information on Brimsek's postseason record, which seems to have been very strong.

- Durnan at his peak seems to have been comparable to Brimsek, so we shouldn't underrate Durnan, though he was obviously not as dominant as Brimsek for as long.
