First Round Recap & Team Stat Leaders After One Round

This was a relatively boring opening round. Only three of the 16 series’ went longer than five games and only two went a full seven. However, those two series’ that went seven were a bit surprising. The 18th-seeded ’10-’11 Tampa Bay Lightning needed seven games to defeat the 47th-seeded ’34-’35 St. Louis Eagles. Then, the 19th-seeded ’10-’11 Carolina Hurricanes needed seven to eliminate the 46th-seeded ’19-’20 Quebec Bulldogs. There were only two matchups in this First Round that the lower seed won and neither of them were all that surprising. The 33rd-seeded ’06-’07 Nashville Predators dispatched of the 32nd-seeded ’37-’38 New York Americans in five games and the 36th-seeded ’13-’14 Columbus Blue Jackets beat the 29th-seeded ’11-’12 Phoenix Coyotes in six games. Two Semifinalists from last year appeared in this First Round and both of them took care of business very easily. The runners up, the 17th-seeded ’88-’89 Calgary Flames, blew out the 48th-seeded ’30-’31 Philadelphia Quakers in four games and the 23rd-seeded ’79-’80 Buffalo Sabres, who lost in the Semifinal, swept the 42nd-seeded ’25-’26 Pittsburgh Pirates.
