So, now, we start the playoffs. Again, time for predictions. But, not so fast. A disclaimer first. The playoffs are harder to predict. As Billy Bean would say, the sample size is too small. The law of small numbers creeps in to play. A hot goalie or hot scorer can swing a short series. Winning a season requires consistency. Winning four consecutive series in a row is different. You need to be better, or lucky, or both, four times in a row.
My prediction? If the King gets hot, they will win it all. After this round, he needs to steal a game or two a series.
The motto for this battle for 16 wins is simple - protect the King! Keep the lanes and the crease clear and he will carry you to the promised land.
PROTECT THE KING!
