Bruins only played the Rangers. Americans played Detroit contrary to your assertion, bolded.
Yeah, hockeyreference fails on my part (whaddyamean NYA isn't the Rangers, lol, and as if I didn't know Shore never played for the Rangers, double lol). Doesn't change anything with respect to what context we're supposed to take away from all that with respect to Brimsek's playoff performances in either year; not one key contributor missing time in '39, vs lots of key offensive contributors missing time in '40 - possibly somewhat affecting the shift to a more defensive brand of hockey?
