Sharks playoffs--been there, done that fun facts (2012 edition)

Regardless of who the Sharks end up playing, they will be playing a familiar opponent throughout the western conference bracket. In the past 10 years, Sharks have played each of the current teams qualified for a playoff position in the playoffs; in addition, they have beaten 5 of the 7 teams selected within that timespan in the playoffs as well:

Vancouver--2011 (L 4-1)
St. Louis--2004 (W 4-1)
Phoenix--2002 (W 4-1)
Nashville--2006 and 2007 (W both 4-1)
Detroit--2007, 2010, and 2011 (L 4-2, W 4-1, and W 4-3, respectively)
Chicago--2010 (L 4-0)
LA--2011 (W 4-2)

Within this span against these opponents:

-Their combined record against these teams in the playoffs is 29-22

-Sharks have won 5 series 4-1

-Sharks have played Detroit the most--winning 2 to 1

-Sharks have had home ice in 6 of the 10 matchups

-Sharks record with home ice advantage: 5-1

-Sharks record without home ice advantage: 2-2



Maybe not the most useful stats, but I feel it's a testament to our playoff pedigree. Perhaps psychological advantages, if anything? I'm just thankful for Joe Thornton

Anything before 2007 doesn't count.

Obviously the teams were WAY different back then (especially for 02, 04), but I still think it means something for the franchise.

Some would say home ice only makes a negligible difference. Obviously I disagree. I'm sure if you looked at the stats for all playoff teams as a whole, you'd see much less parity, but it wouldn't take into account playing at the Joe for Detroit or the tank for San Jose, some teams probably don't get as much advantage from home ice though.

True. SJ is much better at the Tank this year though... Win tonight and we'll have the advantage in the WCF again...
