With just three weeks remaining in the regular season, NHL playoff matchups are far from set, but many San Jose Sharks fans are already looking at potential first-round matchups.
The Sharks are currently in third place in the Western Conference, but only seven points separate them from being in and out of the playoffs.
With that in mind the Sharks could play a large variety of teams in the first round, from the No. 1 seed to the No. 7 seed.
The following slideshow features a brief breakdown on every potential opponent and how the Sharks have fared against that team so far this season.
Feel free to comment below with what teams you would want to see in the opposite bench of the Sharks in the first round and what teams you want to avoid.
All stats include games played up to and through March 22nd.
