    NHL Playoff Odds

    Last Updated: 11/7/2014 at 9:48 AM ET
    The Predictalator uses current rosters and strength-of-schedule and pace-adjusted team and player stats, to play, one possession at a time, every game 50,000 times before it's actually played. For this analysis, we are tracking how likely a team is to make it to any level of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Each Stanley Cup bracket is played individually, with the team that wins the series in each unique instance advancing. The percentages in the table below represent the team's likelihood of advancing to that round.

    The Boston Bruins, who won the President's Cup with the most points in the East, are the favorites to win the Cup at 25.3% and are followed by the Anaheim Ducks (13.2%) and Chicago Blackhawks (12.9%) out of the Western Conference. Chicago, a three seed in the new playoff format (that includes two pods of seeded teams in each conference, is the only team expected pull off a first round upset by seed (over second seeded St. Louis Blues, who faded down the stretch), though Tampa Bay vs. Montreal and San Jose vs. Los Angeles are likely to go the distance in the first round.
