Wrong. Just to clear this up for everyone, here are the actual numbers:
Current playoff format
Best of 5 first round
83-84 North Stars
Best of 3 first round
Just 2 rounds of 7 before the final
However, the playoff format was odd from 1941-42 and earlier, so the rest may have come from this period? Don't really want to figure that out. And the Original Six period only had one round before the final, so that cannot count. So, in the current format, the number is 0-7.
