Notes[edit]

  • Technically, there was no official "Conference Finals" prior to 1982. Prior to that time, all teams were pooled together and seeded for the playoffs. For example, the Calgary-Minnesota (1981) and Philadelphia-Minnesota (1980) series were not Campbell Conference Finals. Meanwhile, Minnesota was in the Wales Conference prior to re-alignment, meaning that the decision to call it the Campbell Conference Final was completely arbitrary on the part of the editor. The same holds true for the Eastern Conference.

Notes[edit]

  • The NHL's Western Conference was once known as the West Division. The West Division existed from 1967, when the NHL was made up of a single division, until 1974 when the league realigned its format into two conferences of two divisions each.
