The last possible date of Game 7 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals is scheduled for June 28. The regular season was shortened to 48 games, and the playoffs pushed to that later date, due to a lockout.
The Toronto Maple Leafs made the playoffs for the first time since 2004, breaking one of the NHL’s longest playoff droughts. Since the 1967 expansion, only the Colorado Rockies/New Jersey Devils (1979–1987) and the Florida Panthers (2001–2011) have had longer playoff droughts.The 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs mark the first time since 1996 that every Original Six team has advanced to the playoffs in the same year. Also, this year marks the first time since 2004 that two Canadian teams have played each other in the playoffs. In all, four Canadian teams qualified for the playoffs (Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver), the most since 2006.
