Backing Into The Post-Season

Here’s a quick snapshot of how previous Cup finalists ended their season over the last five games:

2008 Detroit Red Wings: 3-1-1
2008 Pittsburgh Penguins: 3-1-1
2007 Anaheim Ducks: 3-0-2
2007 Ottawa Senators: 3-1-1
2006 Carolina Hurricanes: 1-2-2
2006 Edmonton Oilers: 3-2
2004 Tampa Bay Lightning: 3-1-1
2004 Calgary Flames: 3-2

What does this all mean? Not much. If you’re looking for patterns, the eventual Stanley Cup finalists aren’t destroying everyone when they make it into the post-season but they’re no slouches either. In short, despite tremendous seasons from the Sharks, Red Wings, and Bruins, this is going to be a wide-open field with strong teams making up 5-8 seeds.
