No Canadian teams in NHL playoffs?  What?

Think about the Toronto basketball team going further than ever in the same season.

If you're not aware, the NHL and NBA seasons are both 82-games, and they occur in the same seasons.

Something tells me we'll be seeing 'Lightning' and 'Thunder' this deep in both respective playoffs is not a coincidence.  Let's see what happens to these teams.

Update, the Lightning were eliminated in Game 7 of the Conference Finals before the Stanley Cup by a Pennsylvania team.  Will the 'Thunder' meet the same fate, who are playing the Warriors, originally from Philadelphia, PA?
