There was much bellyaching in Vancouver about the long layoff since they swept the Blues...basically saying that the Canucks would be rusty.
So I ran the numbers since 1987, just looking at the 2nd round where a 4-0 team went up against a 4-2 team or 4-3 team.
Interestingly, the 4-0 vs 4-3 matchup only came up once. The 4-0 team won the 1st game and the series.
4-0 vs 4-2 came up 12 times.
The record in game 1? 6-6
The record for the series? 6-6
Basically it's meaningless. :-)
