Wrong. Just to clear this up for everyone, here are the actual numbers:

Current playoff format
09-10 Canadiens
08-09 Hurricanes
02-03 Wild
01-02 Leafs
01-02 Avalanche
92-93 Leafs
89-90 Blackhawks

Best of 5 first round
85-86 Blues
84-85 Nordiques
83-84 North Stars
81-82 Nordiques

Best of 3 first round
74-75 Islanders

Just 2 rounds of 7 before the final
67-68 Blues

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.
