I'm pretty sure they did; but it'd be "Transatlantic from somewhere like Nova Scotia via Greenland and/or Iceland," as opposed to a non-stop flight.
There was a documentary on SBS a few months ago about the RAF ferry pilots who had to get aircraft from Canada to the UK that way (IIRC they were flying Bristol Beauforts or something like that), so it was certainly doable in a DC-3.
