Stanley Cup engraving
- From 1930 to 1939, except for the 1933 New York Rangers, 1934 Chicago Black Hawks and 1935 Montreal Maroons every team included their playoff games scores on the Stanley Cup. In 1939, the Boston Bruins were the last team to do this. When the Cup was redone during 1957–58 season all playoff game scores were left off the new ring for the cup winners from 1928 to 1940.
- Three players were included on the Stanley Cup, but did not qualify Pat McReavy (6 games played), Terry Readron (4 games played), Jack Shewchuk (3 games played). Not one of the three players played in the playoffs.
