How we got here:

In case you missed it, we ran a completely random sim (aside from some tweaking to the sliders to make them more realistic for a 20 minute period sim) and the Edmonton Oilers, valiantly fought hard to make a series of it in the Western Conference Finals before falling to the Dallas Stars in 7 games.
