Look, there’s a lot of luck in winning in post-season. You’re up against a really good team, by definition, and you’ve only got a few days to get it right. It takes some luck. Are there also types of players and factors that are helpful in that situation? Of course. It’s like asking a physics professor whether there is a God. Scientists don’t know anything more about whether there is a God than morons do, because it’s not a scientific issue. This isn’t something I can measure. It’s a matter of faith.

Bill James on winning in the playoffs. As I said on Twitter earlier tonight, "It took a .980 save percentage by Halak to beat the Caps. A .960 and the Habs lose the series." Actually a .960 and the Habs get laughed out of the building. Luck's a killer sometimes. Damn shame what they did to that dog.
