Statistics take a lot of grief, have you noticed?

“The pro hockey writers use stats as a crutch to replace actually watching lots of hockey.”

Bret Michaels suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage and Puck Probabilities puts the Caps chances at winning this series at 92%. Fine, we’ll put aside Bret (and the fate of Rock of Love 9) for a moment and focus on hockey.
Do the Caps really have a 92% chance of winning the series?
