Second Round Recap and Team Stat Leaders After One Round

In the First Round, the higher seed won every matchup. Here in the Second Round, the series’ were split with eight being won by the higher seed and eight being won by the lower seed. Of course, there are a handful of matchups where the lower seed would be the favorite. Like in the matchup between the 10th-seeded ’19-’20 Ottawa Senators and the 23rd-seeded ’79-’80 Buffalo Sabres. Or the matchup between the 14th-seeded ’29-’30 Montreal Maroons and the 19th-seeded ’05-’06 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. However, there were some pretty surprising upsets in this round. Three of the biggest upsets involved the elimination of the #2 seed, the #3 seed and the #4 seed. The 2nd-seeded ’47-’48 Toronto Maple Leafs were ousted in five games by the 31st-seeded ’06-’07 Nashville Predators. Ok, maybe not so surprising given the era of the #2 seed. The 3rd-seeded ’07-’08 Detroit Red Wings were eliminated in six games by the 30th-seeded ’85-’86 Hartford Whalers. Yeah, was not expecting that. Finally, the 4th-seeded ’70-’71 Boston Bruins were upset in six games by the 29th-seeded ’11-’12 Phoenix Coyotes. What?!?! So as we move into the Third Round only one of the top four seeds remains.
