Coincidentally, hockey and basketball are the most similar schedule-wise. Or maybe that's not a coincidence..
How many #1 seeds have gotten to the Finals in the NBA and how many get there in the NHL? It's dramatically different, mainly because you can out talent someone in the NBA with 1-3 elite players without too much strategy. It's different in the NHL, only the goalie 'can' have that kind of effect, but it's somewhat random as to which goalie that winds up being.
