If you follow the NHL, you know that the Western Conference is seemingly head and shoulders above their Eastern Conference counterparts.
The degree of which, however, is a staggering statistic.
According to a tweet from the NHL earlier Sunday, the West is up 72-28-11 versus opponents from the other side of the continent.
Western Conference teams have posted a 72-28-11 record in 111 games vs. Eastern Conference opponents this season.— NHL (@NHL) November 10, 2013
Every single team in the West has a record of .500 or better against the East with the exception of the worst team in the conference, the Edmonton Oilers.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are the best team in the East when it comes to facing off against the West. The Lightning have a 6-0-0 record against the Western Conference.
