There's a reason you see more of these runs by lower seeds in every sport (sans the NBA) year after year...it's called parity. Parity and more rounds of the playoffs mean the difference between the 'better' teams and lesser seeds is miniscule, and there are more chances to get tripped up with multiple rounds. This isn't the 1980's when the Islanders and Oilers were on a different planet than the rest of the league.
Also rarely happens in hockey outside of last year.

Coincidentally, hockey and basketball are the most similar schedule-wise. Or maybe that's not a coincidence..
