Unlike most professional sports, in hockey, even the longshots have a legit chance of winning the whole thing. It’s all about getting streaky at the right time, having a goaltender who’s on fire, and staying healthy. Oh yeah, and most importantly, you have to get into the postseason.

The 2018-19 season is officially underway, and the quest for Lord Stanley’s Cup starts now. Of course, in the end, not every team will prove worthy enough to reach the playoffs. While we’re still a ways away from the playoffs picture taking shape, that doesn’t mean oddsmakers in Vegas can’t have a little fun.

With all that being said, here is a look at the 2018 playoff odds for all 31 NHL teams. (‘Yes’ = team will make playoffs, ‘No’ = team will miss playoffs.)
