Well, Toronto & Detroit wound up in the finals Spring of 1945, Selke still with the Leafs, Smythe away, JP Bickell running the Gardens. That was the year of Frank McCool. A "walk-on" to the Leafs replacing Lumley in net and as Blake notes, pretty much average through the season, however post season, thats another story altogether. Guy goes on to win the Calder leading the Leafs to the Stanley Cup, recording 3 consecutive Shutouts (a record since tied but not surpassed) while allowing just 9 goals over a 7 game Final Series (that record finally beaten in 2011 by Tim Thomas). That year, Detroit fought back from a 3 games to zip deficit, the Leafs themselves doing the same in 1942 in those finals, Hap Day the Coach claiming itd never happen again. Well guess again Happy, just did.... Unfortunately for McCool, guy suffered from stomach ulcers (Detroit roaring back after 3 Shutouts & pushing poor Frankie to the limit couldnt have helped huh?) and retired the following season after only 22 or so games.... rink named after him in Calgary. Frank Ulcers McCool Arena. 1900 Lake Bonavista Drive Southeast. Look it up on a map.
