Looking at the interconference games over the past few days:
Saturday thru Monday.
Colorado 4, Montreal 1
Anaheim 6, Buffalo 3
Vancouver 4, Toronto 3
Tampa Bay 4, St Louis 2
Detroit 5, Edmonton 0
Dallas 4, Ottawa 3
Minnesota 4, New Jersey 0
Anaheim 2, New York Rangers 1
Winnipeg 4, Detroit 2
In these nine interconference games the West won seven-of-nine.
The West seems to be having their way so far against Eastern Conference teams this season.
Check out some of the numbers from the latest standings for further evidence.
In the East, the top 8 teams have total points ranging from a high of 22 to a low of 14, with the 9th place team having only 12 points.
In the West, the top 8 teams have total points ranging from a high of 25 to a low of 18 with the 9th place having 18 as well.
In the East, there are a total of 4 teams with 20 points or more while there are a total of 5 teams in the East that have 10 points or less.
In the West, there are 6 teams with 20 points or more while there is only one team in the West that has 10 points or less.
Of course this isn't to suggest that the eventual Cup winner will come from the Western Conference, but based on recent Cup history and the inequality in interconference play so far, it probably wouldn't be a bad wager to make.
