Overtime Records

Remember the 2014 playoff match-up between the Colorado Avalanche and the Minnesota Wild? Yeah, me too… Four of the seven games were decided in overtime, including Game 7 that shattered everyone’s dreams. Definitely a category that can be taken into account when judging how much fans had to suffer.

Larkin analyzed each franchise’s playoff overtime wins and losses, ranking them by win percentage. The Columbus Blue Jackets and Winnipeg Jets are first with a win percentage of zero percent. However, they have only combined for three OT playoff contests, making this category slightly flawed. I mean, if my team doesn’t take a game into overtime, I won’t be sad because they didn’t.

Anyway, the Colorado Avalanche had 40 overtime wins and 29 losses in the playoffs since 1967, ranking 24th in the league. Therefore, 24 more points go to Colorado.
