Even when they went to the four rounds of playoffs, the first round of the playoffs used to be best 3 out of five until the mid-eighties. Asterisks for everyone!!
They also played under different rules and had harder travel. They played in a time when a Gordie Howe hat trick was something to be proud of. Not in the time of ticky tack Bettman hockey.
