The Stanley Cup playoffs have been a mess.
The Western Conference has lost seven of its last eight games, while the Eastern Conference has made a miraculous run.
Both conferences have missed the playoffs since last season.
The Western Conference’s first-round series against the Dallas Stars ended with a 1-1 tie in six games, but the series has been a disaster.
The West has lost three straight games, and the series is tied at two games apiece.
Despite the fact that the Western Conference still has a playoff spot, the West has struggled to keep pace with the Eastern.
The conference’s record is .921, which ranks dead last in the league.
The East has been even worse, ranking last in both the scoring and goals-against percentage.
The Eastern is also tied with the West in the points percentage.
The teams who have made the playoffs in each conference have lost at least seven games in each of the past four seasons, and have gone on to finish in last place.
In each of those four years, the East finished in last or tied for last place, and in all four years the West finished in the top six.
In the first round, the top two teams will meet in a two-game series to determine the Stanley Cups.
But the Stanley cup playoffs are often a gamble.
There are a lot of unknowns for the West, and there are some games to be won.
So, how can the West be saved in the playoff series?
The West has been losing games to the West.
It’s possible the West will have to make some big adjustments to make it through the playoffs.
For example, the teams that have made it to the Stanley final this season have all won their first two games.
With a few changes to their play, the Western conference could be able to avoid the disaster of the West and go on to win the Stanley championship.
If the West is able to win all three of their remaining games, they would be in first place in the West’s conference and would have the best record in the conference.
The only team that would likely have to change would be the New York Rangers, who could play the rest of the regular season at home.
How will the West do in the playoffs?
The Western conference has a few advantages, but there are also some disadvantages.
First, the league has not played a full regular season since the 2006-07 season.
The NHL is scheduled to play its first playoff game in eight days, which means the league will have played less games than it normally would.
Second, the conference has only five playoff games this season, which is the second-fewest in the past 20 years.
Third, the playoff schedule has been shortened by three years from last year’s regular season.
This means the Western division could play a bit more games than usual.
Fourth, there is no guaranteed home-ice advantage for the conference, so it will likely be very close in the final four games of the series.
And finally, the Eastern conference has been winning games against the West since last year.
The league has won eight of its nine regular-season games, with three games being decided by one goal.
What can the Western and East do to get through this?
It is important to note that there is nothing wrong with the conference’s schedule, but it could benefit the West if the West plays the best hockey.
“You can get into this game in two different ways,” said Bob Murray, a former NHL GM and current NBC Sports analyst.
“[The Western] teams have a very good defensive corps.
They have a good goaltender, and they have a really good forward corps.
So if the Western teams play the way they’ve played this season and the East teams play their way, the two teams that can win are going to have to play very well in this game.”
The East has a similar strength as the West with its forward corps and goaltenders.
However, it also has the league’s worst record in goals-for percentage.
That could make it difficult for the East to win games.
In addition, the NHL is set to start a new era this season with a new television deal, which could affect the league in other ways.
The new TV deal would bring more money into the league and allow the league to offer more playoff games.
The league could also change the rules to make more of an impact on the playoff format.
When the NHL expanded to 28 teams in 1993, the expansion draft was changed to allow the top three teams to draft a first-rounder in the first-ever amateur draft.
The expansion draft allowed the teams to use their first- and second-round picks to select players who were not eligible for the draft.
Under the new format, the first team to pick first in the expansion pool would be allowed to
