    2017 NHL PLAYOFFS - Obsidian is lazy edition

    Eastern Conference

    Atlantic 1 Habs vs WildCard 1 Rangers

    Season series: Habs won 3-0-0 (Rangers 0-2-1)
    Stats from the trade deadline to the end of the season:
    score close 5v5 CF%: Habs 52.80 - Rangers 47.93
    score close 5v5 SF%: Habs 53.11 - Rangers 48.07
    score close 5v5 GF%: Habs 55.22 - Rangers 50
    score close 5v5 SCF%: Habs 51.60 - Rangers 46.22
    PP%: Habs 10.5 (LOL) - Rangers 26.5
    PK%: Habs 86.7 - Rangers 76.8

    Unless Kreider takes out Price again, or if the league allows goals where Price is literally dragged out of his net, Habs will take it.

    Atlantic 2 Sens vs Atlantic 3 Bruins

    Season series: Sens won 4-0-0 (Bruins 0-3-1)
    Stats from the trade deadline to the end of the season:
    score close 5v5 CF%: Sens 49.54 - Bruins 53.69
    score close 5v5 SF%: Sens 51.25 - Bruins 54.03
    score close 5v5 GF%: Sens 55.38 - Bruins 52.31
    score close 5v5 SCF%: Sens 49.40 - Bruins 53.28
    PP%: Sens 16.4 - Bruins 28.6
    PK%: Sens 71.4 - Bruins 85.5

    Sens won the season series, but the Bruins seem to be the better team heading into the playoffs. However, the Sens and Bruins played 3 times in March/April, and Sens won those.

    Metro 1 Caps vs WildCard 2 Toranna

    Season series: Caps won 2-1-0 (Leafs went 1-1-1)
    Stats from the trade deadline to the end of the season:
    score close 5v5 CF%: Caps 54.08 - Leafs 50.24
    score close 5v5 SF%: Caps 54.94 - Leafs 47.16
    score close 5v5 GF%: Caps 50.00 - Leafs 48.61
    score close 5v5 SCF%: Caps 52.58 - Leafs 50.47
    PP%: Caps 25.8 - Leafs 26.3
    PK%: Caps 82.8 - Leafs 78.4

    This series should be closer than expected based on the advanced stats, but the Leafs are not healthy heading into the playoffs, so we'll never find out.

    Metro 2 Penguins vs Metro 3 #LUMBUS

    Season series: Tied (2-1-1 for both teams, nod to LUMBUS for +3 goal differential, but that was a 7-1 rout)
    Stats from the trade deadline to the end of the season:
    score close 5v5 CF%: Pens 48.27 - Lumbus 49.63
    score close 5v5 SF%: Pens 48.16 - Lumbus 50.90
    score close 5v5 GF%: Pens 51.16 - Lumbus 53.97
    score close 5v5 SCF%: Pens 48.84 - Lumbus 51.08
    PP%: Pens 28.6 - Lumbus 11.6
    PK%: Pens 77.8 - Lumbus 83.3

    The stats all seem to favor Lumbus, except PP%. I think the Pens can turn it up a notch, whereas Lumbus has been flooring it for the most of the year. I dont think they have as much in the tank. The thing with Lumbus though, is they play a heavy physical game (see Toronto's game #82, a meaningless game for Columbus). Pittsburgh will win, but will come out battered and bruised. Dubinsky will make Crosby's life hell.

    Western Conference

    Central 1 Hawks vs WildCard 2 Perds
    Season series:
    Stats from the trade deadline to the end of the season:
    score close 5v5 CF%: Hawks 48.99 - Perds 50.85
    score close 5v5 SF%: Hawks 50.49 - Perds 50.11
    score close 5v5 GF%: Hawks 50.67 - Perds 56.06
    score close 5v5 SCF%: Hawks 49.30 - Perds 49.94
    PP%: Hawks 15.1 - Perds 12.7
    PK%: Hawks 82.6 - Perds 77.5

    Central 2 Wild vs Central 3 Blues

    Season series:
    Stats from the trade deadline to the end of the season:
    score close 5v5 CF%: Wild 55.43 - Blues 48.40
    score close 5v5 SF%: Wild 56.12 - Blues 50.51
    score close 5v5 GF%: Wild 49.41 - Blues 64.71
    score close 5v5 SCF%: Wild 56.33 - Blues 51.53
    PP%: Wild 16.1 - Blues 18.9
    PK%: Wild 81.0 - Blues 87.7

    How the fuck are the Blues in the playoffs? They were sellers trading Shattenkirk, lost Fabbri to injury, Stastny is hurt, FailForNail is questionable.

    Pacific 2 Oilers vs Pacific 3 Sharks

    Season series:

    score close 5v5 GF%: Oilers 60.00 - Sharks 49.30

    PP%: Oilers 27.1 - Sharks 14.3
    PK%: Oilers 85.4 - Sharks 78.2

    Unless the Sharks can get their shit together, they look like the tank is empty.

    The Blues actually finished the season on a pretty crazy streak, if I'm remembering correctly. That series is also the Mike Yao Bowl, so that should be fun.

    Flames vs Ducks: Honda Center Ducks in 6
    Wild vs Blues: SPURGEON!! <3 Wild in 6
    Oilers vs Sharks: Battle of never been there, and never shown up there (aside from last year) Oilers in 6. But it'll be secondary scoring from Ebs and Lucic

    He made this post last year before the playoffs started. I wonder how accurate he is this year?
