The Western Conference has a very strong Central Division, but the Pacific Division is one that has been the question mark. The Pacific Division with that being the case is one division that could prove interesting as the top teams are good, but the rest of the division is one that has not really been able to show up big on the year and that can cost the Pacific Division quite a bit.
The Vegas Golden Knights were one of the teams that has managed to move up in the standings. At the time of the pause the Golden Knight were able to lead the Pacific Division with 86 points. When it came to goal scoring the Golden Knights had 227 goals for and only 211 against.
Edmonton has a lot of talent on the roster and that helped the team finish in second in the Pacific Division with 83 points. When it comes to scoring the Oilers have a total of 225 goals and only allowed 217 goals.
With the Calgary team the Flames were able to finish in third in the Pacific Division with a total of 79 points. What is interesting is the Flames were one team that had been able to bounce around nicely and at various points led the Pacific Division. The Flames have managed to score 210 goals while allowing 215 goals.
Vancouver managed to finish in 4th in the Pacific Division with a total of 78 points. Now, the Canucks did have a decent offense with 228 goals scored, but the defense was lacking allowing 217 goals on the year.
The Coyotes were the one team that ended up really pulling out a miracle by making the 24 team playoff picture. The Coyotes were the last team to make the playoffs in the Pacific Division. When it came to goal scoring the Coyotes only managed to get 195 goals, but allowed 187 goals.
Anaheim had a lot of problems in winning the games this year and finished the year with only 67 points. The Ducks offense was a major issue with only 187 goals scored. The other aspect was the defense was getting overworked with 226 goals allowed.
The Kings were another team that looked better on paper than how the team ended up. The Kings finished with 64 points total. However, the Kings only managed to score 178 goals while allowing 212 goals in the game.
Bringing up the rear for the Pacific Division is the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks had flirted with the basement all year and with only 63 points finished in the basement. The goal scoring for San Jose was not horrible with 182 goals, but the Sharks defense could not get it together giving up 226 goals.
