Sorry this post is late. I've been moving house so in the chaos of that I couldn't get this post done in time for the start of round 3. Let's see how we did in the 2nd round:
Boston 0.800 0.577 0.400 Montreal 0.200 0.079 0.029
Pittsburgh 0.563 0.206 0.102 NY_Rangers 0.437 0.138 0.060
Chicago0.690 0.331 0.136 Minnesota0.310 0.095 0.024
Anaheim0.572 0.347 0.160 Los_Angeles0.428 0.227 0.090
The favourites went down in 3/4 of the matches, which leaves our simulator at 5/12. Not doing well this year, but keep in mind that this is going to happen with what amounts to coin flipping. Montreal coming out on top was the biggest upset - I didn't watch very much of the series, but it kind of looked like a lot of that was Carey Price just shutting the door. Chicago was the other clear favourite, and they had some trouble with Minnesota it looked like but managed to finish it off anyway.
Let's set up round 3. I know the result of the first game of Montreal vs NY, but the simulator didn't have that recorded. So here is its predictions for the 3rd round:
Montreal 0.432 0.161 NY_Rangers 0.568 0.250
Chicago0.525 0.318 Los_Angeles0.475 0.271
Yay, coinflipping! These two series are pretty close, but NY has the slight edge which will contradict some of the odds since Montreal technically finished higher. Chicago is ahead of LA by a narrow margin. Should be interesting to see what happens from here!
