Yes the season has turned out great but the playoffs are an entirely different animal..fewer penalties called, less space, teams tend to shoot from anywhere and at any time, and the games are far more physical.

So we shall see.
Argument to this is the hawks are the best team in the NHL on 5-5 play scoring 1.52 5 on 5 goals for every 5 on 5 goal we give up. Next team in the league is Pittsburgh at 1.35. It's a pretty big gap when only 6 teams in the league are at 1.2 or above.
