More Hockey Stats


Part I
Part II
Part III

And now we're putting two in a row with West vs. East.


This page shows the results of games between Eastern and Western Conference teams. The data is available from the year 1993, when Western and Eastern Conference were formed, from the Boxscore files.

Shown from left to right: 

  • Regular West wins
  • OT/SO West wins
  • Ties(up to year 2005)
  • OT/SO East wins
  • Regular East wins
  • Stanley Cup Winning Conference

A total tally is available as well. As of the date of this post the standings are:
WEST 2802 Reg. W - 595 OTW - 444 T - 541 Reg. W - 2570 Reg. W EAST
West holds a formidable lead which eroded a bit in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons. Before that the last time East won the count was back in 1998/99! The 2009/10 was the most lopsided season with the final score of 155-115 in West's favor.
West won 14 times, East - 6. Once, in 2011/12 there was a tie with 134 wins apiece.

The Stanley Cup winners are divided more evenly, however, with West holding the edge 13-10.

There is no data for seasons 1994/95, 2004/05 and 2012/13 because of full or or partial season lockout. Also, the win-loss count from the Finals are not included.

If you are an experienced Webmaster, especially with Javascript and CSS we would greatly appreciate the potential tidy-up and enrichment you could provide to these graphs. Your work will be credited for future reference! Write to us, or get in touch with us on Twitter. Thanks!
