The year was 1993. The Prime Minister was Brian Mulroney, gas was a jaw dropping 25 cents per liter and Disney's The Lion King was still a year a way from coming out in theatres.
In the spring of 1993, the Montreal Canadians won their 24th Stanley Cup. Almost a quarter century has past and that remains Canada's last. 23 straight times the Stanley Cup will be hoisted by an American team. Is it a flue, unluckiness or just straight the way its going to be.
Five teams have gotten to the Cup Finals. Vancouver twice and Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa only once respectively.
