I like those odds


What I like about them is that, if you move the decimal point over one spot, our odds jump up to 18%.

And if you tack another zero on the end and move the decimal point over another spot, our odds of winning jump up to a whopping 180%.

Dude...we have a 180% chance of winning this series now!

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

As fans...I think we need to think like the players. Forget trying to think about being down 3-0 and winning 4 straight, or the history of it all. Just forget the Devils are down 3-0 and be concerned with the Devils trying to win tonight. That's it.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

I mean, what else are you gonna do? Not watch, I guess. But that's not an option. The people on this board are watching the game ... and the post-game funeral on MSG 2, if that happens to be tonight.

Exactly. 4 best out of 1's. It's like NCAA single elimination. Let's go get this one and worry about tomorrow, tomorrow.

1.8% x a googleplex + A / B to the 16 - 2 x 456 to the cosmos = 758, so really when you think about it, the Devils are looking good. LOL

1.8% is half of the 3.6% of the chances the Devils would win the lottery last year to get Lars.

We've been upgraded to 8.6% now. But teams down 3-1 have had a rough patch, they're 1 out of their last 16 finishing the job. (Tampa 2011 first round against Pittsburgh) Actually, more teams have tied up 3-0 series than have won from 3-1. During that time period, obviously.
