Hottest NHL Teams Entering the 2014 NHL Playoffs
Lynne Sladky

Conventional wisdom suggests that a team on a hot streak leading up to the playoffs is likely to continue winning once the playoffs start. There is no definitive proof of that, but I have decided to rank the NHL teams in the playoffs according to their winning percentage since the Olympics.

I have pulled every playoff team's record from the team schedules at The website also includes team records for the last 10 games of the regular season, which I used as a tie-breaker. 

Here, for what it is worth, are the NHL playoff teams ranked from coldest to hottest as they are entering the NHL playoffs. All team records are presented as wins-losses in regulation-overtime losses.
