Kings aiming to end the sweep drought
By ESPN Stats & Information
Sweep Drought to End? Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Kings could end the longest sweep drought (14 years) in a championship round in major pro sports history. The last Stanley Cup finals sweep came in 1998 by the Detroit Red Wings over the Washington Capitals. The next longest such drought is 12 years (MLB from 1977-88, and NBA from 1947-58).
