NBA And NHL Playoff Notes

April 16, 2016

There are four cities that have teams in the 16 team fields of both the NBA and NHL playoffs.

Those cities/areas are Detroit and Miami/Florida from each league’s Eastern Conference and Los Angeles and Dallas from each league’s Western Conference.

Detroit has the Red Wings in hockey and the Pistons in the NBA. Miami is in both league’s playoffs with the NHL East two seed, Florida Panthers and the NBA East four seed, Miami Heat.

Out West, L.A. has the NHL Kings and NBA Clippers, each with home advantage in the first round while Dallas enters the NHL West top seed, Stars and the NBA Mavericks, the NBA West six seed.

For the first time since 1970, no teams from Canada made the NHL playoffs. No team from Canada has won the Stanley Cup since 1993.

None of the seven NHL teams from Canada made the playoffs.
