#150: Stanley Cup Final 2010
On the road, but I wanted to make sure I got a prediction in before the Final started.
First, Shots on Goal Differential (SOGD) in predicting series outcomes is now 9-5 after both Philadelphia and Chicago advanced as predicted in the last post.
The short story: Chicago is at a +9 for the season, Philly at a +3.
Philadelphia is not "guaranteed" to lose this series because they're in the positive, as well, but Chicago is becoming the new Detroit Red Wing machine (as much as they would probably hate that comparison).
I hope to edit this before the series starts and add some numbers and factoids, but just in case I don't...
Third time's the charm, and Marian Hossa finally raises the Cup.
Blackhawks in five.
