East: 3, 4, 7, 8
West: 3, 5, 7, 8


If we go by conference standings we have:

East: 2, 4, 7, 8
West: 2, 5, 7, 8

However the 2 in the West and the 4 in the East could potentially have been considered the underdogs in their respective series.

Doesn't division winner override points though?

(Can we please just get rid of this terrible playoff system)

Probably, but overall points probably paints a better picture.

Also the Islanders were definitely the underdogs in their series. I'm just not sure on the Sharks.

That was maybe the most backwards round 1 ever and I can’t be more excited about it. It’s the year of the underdogs! Honestly will probably watch more games this postseason than I ever have

I can't decide if I want to unironically +8 Columbus or Colorado.

So I was reading this for no particular reason as they were going over the series and:

The Vegas Golden Knights, last season’s expansion surprise, were slight favorites over the San Jose Sharks despite not having home ice.

Ok yeah, Vegas was slightly favored which is what I thought.

Yeah 7 underdogs won.

I think the long layoff might kill Columbus. Colorado is a much safer bet and they're playing a weaker team round 2.
