Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (2003)
The Mighty Ducks entered the playoffs as the No. 7 seed in the West and surprised many with a sweep of the defending champion Detroit Red Wings in the first round. Following that series, the Ducks defeated the top-seeded Dallas Stars in six and swept the Minnesota Wild to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. In the finals, the Ducks pushed the New Jersey Devils to seven games, but fell just short. Both teams had won all their home games, which gave the Devils a distinct advantage going into Game 7 in New Jersey. (AP Photo/LM Otero)
