PP scoring in the 1950s is vastly, vastly different than PP scoring in the 2000s. I can't believe I actually have to point this out. My understanding is that during that time, the first unit played basically the entire 2 minutes. And what do you know? The data backs it up! Look at the 53-54 season, Henry-Bentley-Hergesheimer was the first PP line that year, and they have the numbers to back it up. If you weren't a first liner(with rare exceptions like Henry who was a PP specialist) you barely got any PP time back then.
