The Toronto Maple Leafs are currently at 53 consecutive Cup-less seasons (1967-68 season to present).
The New York Rangers had 53 consecutive Cup-less seasons from 1940-41 to 1992-93, winning the Cup in the 54th season.

[John Shannon] I rarely, if ever, criticize my former employers. But I am so disappointed in both Rogers and the NHL for not respecting the tradition of Saturday Night for HNIC. Surely there could have been some thought to putting 1 of the 3 remaining Canadian teams in that familiar window.
With the Maple Leafs' loss to the Blue Jackets, Toronto sports teams are now 0-5 in postseason series against teams from the State of Ohio.
