Biggest Playoff Outshooting Margins, 1988-2010

New, comments

As crazy as it might seem, the Sharks 51-17 drubbing of the Avalanche is not the most extreme outshooting result we've seen in recent memory.  That honor belongs to Detroit's 51-15 shellacking of Calgary in the 2007 playoffs:

Only once had a team won such an extreme game before - the last ever win by the Winnipeg Jets, over the Detroit Red Wings in the first round of the 1996 playoffs.  The absolute most extreme result was Philadelphia's 75-37 beating of Toronto in 2003, but that required triple overtime to get so many shots!
