The number listed the right of the team name in the First Round is the average games won from 10,000 runs of that series. Percentages in the table reflect the chance of a team making it to that round. In the NHL, teams are reseeded by record after each round. For instance, if the 8 seed beats the top seed in the first round, it will still face the best remaining team in the second round. The bracket represents the most likely outcome, where the team with the highest prospect of advancing is moved to the next round.
