OT: Maybe a more challenging question, how many times has an 8th seed team gone to the SCF and the WCF and ECF?
Since the current format was adopted in 1994, the only 8th seed to appear in a Western conference (before LA this year) and Stanley Cup Finals is the Edmonton Oilers in 2006. Montreal appeared in the ECF in 2010. Numerous 7th seeds have made the Stanley Cup Finals and none have won the Stanley Cup:
  • 1994 - Vancouver
  • 1999 - Buffalo
  • 2003 - Anaheim
  • 2010 - Philadelphia
