  • The Nashville Predators will open the playoffs on the road against (in descending order of likelihood) Phoenix, Vancouver, San Jose or Chicago.
  • The Kings have a 26% chance of playing San Jose or Chicago. The Preds have a 16% chance.
  • The Canucks have a lock on the 3rd seed, and will open at home against (in descending order of likelihood) Nashville, Los Angeles or the Detroit Red Wings.
  • The Colorado Avalanche (or the Calgary Flames, who still have a 5% shot) will open on the road against either Chicago or San Jose.
  • Detroit will play (in descending order of likelihood) Chicago, San Jose, Vancouver or Phoenix.
  • One of San Jose or Chicago will play (all but certainly) Colorado, and whichever doesn't play Colorado is very likely to play Detroit (48%), though L.A (26%), or Nashville (16%) are also possible.
  • Phoenix is almost certain to finish 4th, and will play (in descending order of likelihood) Nashville, Los Angeles or Detroit.
