It works better in MLB because that league has far fewer teams in the playoffs. Teams that make it are the best in the league, which is not the case in the NHL where more than half the teams make the playoffs.

"Anything can happen" totally works in the NFL because that's a one-and-done playoff format. Funny how those who love to advocate "anything can happen" love to mention the Giants Superbowl without troubling to mention that the Giants didn't need to beat the Patriots.
And then beat them again.
And then beat them again.
And then beat them again.

Yeah, the history is quite conclusive, but "there are none so blind" as the saying goes.
