Tampa Bay (128 points, Atlantic Division champ): The Lightning’s historically great regular season (NHL record-tying 62 wins, league-best 325 goals) ended with a historically disastrous playoff (first team in the 52-year expansion era to fail to win a playoff game after leading the NHL in points). For 82 games, Tampa Bay had the league’s top points-scorer in Hart Trophy winner Nikita Kucherov 41-87-128) as well as Steven Stamkos (45-53-98), Brayden Point (41-51-92) and Vezina Trophy-winning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy (39 wins, .925 save%, 2.40 GAA, 6 shutouts).
