How many teams have gone up 3-0 in all four rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs?

I’m going to go out on a limb and say: one. This one. Maybe one of those (enumerated in this post) dynasty teams did it. But I don’t think so. I’ll look it up after the dizziness wears off.

    Nobody’s ever done it before.

       Only the ’08 Pens and ’05 Wings had ever gone up 3-0 in the first 3 rounds before the Kings did it this year. The Pens lost the first 2 games of the Final. Detroit got swept.

          Hmm, I seem to forget how many game the ’05 Wings won…

      Even the 1988 Oilers didn’t do it. They lost Game 3 against Detroit in the Conference Finals, but led all three other series 3-0. That’s the closest anyone has ever come before this.

      Dang, I should have put this up on my blog and linked to it. Oh well.

           I suppose I should have asked first if you mind me posting a link over to my Kings blog (which is nowhere near as good as yours, but I wanted in on the fun).

    Hey… What’s the points blown for the playoffs?
    Can you imagine a 15-2 run in the regular season?

    Here’s the real question: has *anyone* in North American pro sports ever led all four series of a playoffs 3-0 before the Kings did it tonight? That means not just in the Stanley Cup Finals but in the NBA as well.

    Want the answer?
