from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail,
The most successful team over that stretch has been the Detroit Red Wings, who won the 2009 Stanley Cup to go along with 244 regular season wins, or an average of 107 points a season.
Tied right with them in wins over that period are the San Jose Sharks, who never had much playoff success but have been one of the NHL’s best regular season teams for nearly a decade.
Both are out after five games in Round 1.
It’s a list that goes on and on. After Detroit and San Jose, the most successful teams between 2007-08 and this season have been Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Washington, New Jersey, Boston and Chicago.
And only one will be playing in Round 2 this year: The winner of Wednesday’s Game 7 between Boston and Washington.
