The final four

The following statistics are from the regular season, with the difference column a comparison between the teams facing each other in Round 3.

I'll put together something on the playoff numbers for tomorrow:

1 Detroit 115 1 18
2 Pittsburgh 102 4 7
3 Dallas 97 8 -18
4 Philadelphia 95 11 -7






Teams Wins NHL Rk Diff
1 Detroit 54 1 9
2 Pittsburgh 47 4 5

4 Pittsburgh 81 23 -2.2






Teams PIM/G NHL Rk Diff

2 Dallas 14.4 21 2.9
3 Pittsburgh 14.4 22 -3.6
4 Philadelphia 17.9 28 3.6






Teams SOG NHL Rk Diff
1 Detroit 34.4 1 7.7
2 Philadelphia 28.8 16 1.1
3 Pittsburgh 27.7 23 -1.1
4 Dallas 26.7 27 -7.7






Teams SOGA NHL Rk Diff

2 Dallas 26.1 4 2.6
3 Pittsburgh 30.8 24 -1.0
4 Philadelphia 31.8 27 1.0

Detroit leads seven of the 10 categories, and finished in the top four in the NHL in everything except save percentage and penalty killing, where they were 13th and eighth.

You can really see the East/West differences, too. Fewer goals against in the West, fewer shots against, fewer penalties and strong penalty killing.

Strange. In the Pittsburgh/Philadelphia series I would have thought the Penguins would have the upper hand in special teams, but from those numbers that looks like the place where the Flyers could win the series.
