So yeah, Boston in this case is kinda sitting in the middle of the pack in terms of odds to win the whole damn thing.

Micah at Hockeyviz.com goes one deeper, and says it’s less than a 50% chance on probability whether or not Boston makes the playoffs:

But like all things Vegas, you might wanna keep your hand on that dial and stare at the results before you call up your bookie. You will notice if you can parse the differences in color on that graph that Boston’s trending up, and there are plenty of games to go.

Anything can happen, right?
