Okay... I've had a day off and wasn't buying the whole 0-38 crap (teams are 0-38 in conference finals after going to 7 games in both previous rounds). I checked it and only since 1987, we've had best-of-7 play offs all the way. Here's a list of teams playing 14 games before the conference finals:
Chicago Black Hawks beating Minnesota North Stars and St. Louis Blues before losing 4-2 to Edmonton Oilers
Toronto Maple Leafs beating Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues before losing 4-3 to the LA Kings
Toronto Maple Leafs again, beating New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators before losing 4-2 to the Carolina Hurricanes
Minnesota Wild beating Colorado Avalanche and Vancouver Canucks before losing to the Anaheim Ducks 4-0
Carolina Hurricanes beating New Jersey Devils and Boston Bruins before losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0
Montreal Canadiens beating Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins before losing to the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1
at 7-7 with two games remaining the in the season everyone had counted the giants out...they made the playoffs and continued on to repeat a similar run in the playoffs to win the Super Bowl as the underdogs.....tonight we play for new york....let's go rangers!!!
