Suspended Playoff Games

Suspended playoff games are another example. 1988 and 1951:

!988 featured a suspended game 4 in the finals.

Note that the players get credit for the extra game as some Bruins top at 23 games but the team gets credit for 22. The series is portrayed as a 4-0 Edmonton sweep even though there was a suspended tie.

1951 featured a suspended game 2 - curfew in the semi-finals:

Note that the Bruin players get credit for 6 games where applicable but the team gets credit for 5 games. The series is portrayed as a 4-2 Toronto victory, when in fact is was 4-1 with a suspended tie set aside. The Bruin goalies show a record of 1W and 4 L.

In one instance a suspended tie is set aside completely. In another instance a suspended tie is attributed as a W for one team and a L for another. However the respective goalies do not get credit for a win or a tie.

Used the Bruins to illustrate the overages and incongruencies but in both instances the respective Oiler and Leaf stats mirror the situation.
