The Cinderella Team.

What would the NHL playoffs be without them?

Whether it's your team or not, as a hockey fan, you've got to give a lot of respect to those teams that can, despite a mountain of odds, prove the doubters wrong, muster enough resolve that they then turn into confidence and, suddenly, become a legitimate threat to any team they face.
