The only time that I've ever driven to Halifax, was over the course of a few days via Québec and Saint John. I can list a lot of the these times from my own experience.
Oh ya it's still a distance. Halifax was extremely lucky with the first round matchup this year. I haven't paid a whole lot of attention the past couple of years.. is this the format they use now or is it just because there is 17 teams this year? I like the old format where it is done by conferences and the final 4 they switch and you could get rivals in the Finals but don't face teams far away until the 3rd round. I actually wish the NHL did that. Imagine a Rangers-Penguins finals this year (potentially, just using an example)
From Sidney I'd say tack on another 5 hours atleast. From Hali to the start of Cape Breton is about 4 hours and I've only driven to Sidney once (2008? playoffs I think). So for them, it is quite the distance to face the Quebec teams.
