Game 1: N.J killed Carolina in this game.
Game 2: Loss of their captain is huge. Looks like Carolina will try to make a series out of this.
Game 3: This is turning out to be a lot closer than I expected.
Game 4: Brodeur didn't look too happy.
Game 5: Amazing goaltending, but Brodeur wins.
Game 6: Didn't see that coming, Ward is outplaying Brodeur in this series.
Game 7: Who would've predicted that ending!

Yawn! Can't say this series interests me in the least. This one should be easy for Brodeur... Some people might be mesmerized at the Hurricanes recent record, but as I explained: it doesn't matter. Should be low scoring, majority of the scoring should occur with the man advantage, so Carolina would be wise to stay out of the box.

Note: Brodeur only played half of the season series vs. Carolina (Weekes & Clemmensen played in 2 losses)

while this series as probably gotten the least press, it's been one of the most competitive and interesting to watch.

JG,

Does your SQ model take score into account? If so, how?

I ask simply because the expected score of game 6 seems way off to me. Carolina dominated this game and was outshooting New Jersey 23-6 by the time the score was 3-0.
