1 -- Wins by the Red Wings in their final 10 games. Detroit finished the season in a 1-3-4-2 slump while resting much of its regular lineup.
2 -- Overtime goals needed by Colorado's Joe Sakic to tie Maurice Richard for the most in postseason history with six.
3 -- Top-five scorers who will be playing in the Canucks-Avalanche series -- Markus Naslund (90 points, 2nd), Todd Bertuzzi (85, 3rd) and Sakic (79, T5th).
4 -- Playoff hat tricks by Steve Yzerman. The Detroit center last accomplished the feat on April 21, 1999.
5 -- Teams that sold out all 41 home games this season -- Colorado, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit and Minnesota.
5.2 -- Goals per game scored this regular season, the league's lowest total since 1955.
6 -- Consecutive seasons the Flames and Lightning have missed the playoffs, the longest droughts in the NHL. The Rangers are right behind them with five straight years of no playoffs.
10 -- Consecutive postseason series lost by the Phoenix/Winnipeg franchise. The last time the club won a series was 1987 against Calgary in the first round.
13 -- Goals scored on 39 penalty shots in postseason history. The last was scored by Sakic on May 12, 2001, against Roman Turek of St. Louis.
14 -- Consecutive seasons Eric Desjardins has made the playoffs, the league's longest active streak, seven times each with the Flyers (1995-2002) and Canadiens (1988-94). Detroit's Sergei Fedorov is second with 12.
23 -- Consecutive seasons the Blues have made the playoffs, the longest active streak in professional sports.
25 -- Postseason series played in by the Canucks, but none against the Red Wings, their first-round opponent.
28 -- Times the Canadiens and the Bruins have met in the playoffs, an NHL record. Montreal has won 21 of those series.
44 -- The record for most goals scored by a team in a postseason series, set by Edmonton in defeating Chicago 4-2 in the 1985 conference final.
90 -- Career playoff goals by Detroit's Brett Hull, the active leader. Hull needs three to tie Glenn Anderson for fourth on the all-time list.
96 -- Points compiled by the Islanders this season, a year after producing a league-worst 52 points. The 44-point improvement is the fourth-best in NHL history, behind the 1981-82 Winnipeg Jets (plus-48), the '92-93 Quebec Nordiques (plus-52) and the '93-94 San Jose Sharks (plus-58).
137 -- Career postseason wins by Colorado goalie Patrick Roy, the most in league history and 45 more than the runner-up, Grant Fuhr.
178 -- Career postseason points by Montreal's Doug Gilmour, the most of any players who qualified for this year's playoffs.
1961 -- The last time the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, the longest drought among the NHL's Original Six teams.
