edit, confirmed: New Jersey Devils (1995)– The Devils, seeded 5th in the Eastern Conference and without home ice advantage in any of the 4 rounds, upset the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins, each in 5 games, and rival Philadelphia Flyers in 6 games to get to the finals where they swept the heavily-favored Detroit Red Wings.
I didn't know that.. dang, thats pretty interesting.. I would have assumed a 6-7th seed has won it, I knew that an 8th seed has never..

OT: Maybe a more challenging question, how many times has an 8th seed team gone to the SCF and the WCF and ECF?
