The Playoffs? Hell, Yeah!
At the end of the 1974-75 regular season, the Vancouver Canucks finished #1 in their division with 86 points, earning their first ever berth in the NHL Playoffs.
As luck would have it, their opponents turned out to be none other than the powerhouse Montreal Canadiens. Although the Canucks surprised everyone by winning game 2 in Montreal, the Habs eventually took the series in 5 games.
