Just thought that this topic may warrant a thread by itself, as we look at the accuracies of predicting the outcome of playoffs match-ups, based on the head-to-head records in the regular season series... Below are the full list of predictions, since the league's inception in 1996. Some ground rules: 1. For 1-legged playoff series (e.g. the Play-in Round since 2011 & Conf. Finals since 2003), only the home regular season games of the hosting team were considered. 2. For 2-legged (or more) playoff series (e.g. Best-of-3 in 1996-2002), all regular season games between the teams were considered. 3. A team would "win" a playoff series, if they amass more points in head-to-head regular season games against their playoff opponents. 4. In case of equal point amassed, the tie-breakers are: a. GS in head-to-head regular season games, b. PKs scored throughout regular season, c. Total GS in regular season standings, d. Total GD in regular season standings.
