Remember confidence intervals? Well, those are what we are going to explore again today! Just a reminder that confidence intervals are an interval of plausible values that show ability.
For today's example, we will use these intervals to show how confident we are about how many goals a team can score in the Stanley Cup based on their playoff performances.
-1.22 To 2.64 goals
2.25 to 3.85 goals
What does this all mean? It means that the team usually scores between the two ranges listed above around 95% of the time.
Here are some things to remember: Pittsburgh played FOUR more games than Nashville did. Does that mean that they had tougher rounds with better teams? Maybe, or Nashville could just be that dominant.
Another thing to think about, Nashville's goaltending. You do not need to constantly score multiple goals in a game when your goalie is the team. Pittsburgh faced good goaltenders, but have they faced one like Pekka Rinne? Maybe, but also maybe not. We shall see on Monday how these teams do and which storyline prevails.
Hi, I'm Jenna and I'm a sports fan! I've been avidly watching sports since 2011 because I found that by watching sports, I would be able to communicate with my dad and brother better. Ever since I got into sports, I've been able to enjoy myself more when I go to sporting events with my family.
