Yep, those pre-war teams were at a real disadvantage because of the circus.

During the 1928 finals against the Montreal Maroons, the circus was booked at MSG. The owners wanted Rangers home games to be played in Boston but the players opted against that. Instead all five games were played in Montreal and Canadien fans rooted for the Rangers.
