There is also a 1% chance we win the Division.

Small sample size still plays a role in those numbers. Take a look at the number for the Islanders. Two more points than the Caps (with 1 game in hand) and they have a 25% chance of making it. One decent winning streak and that number looks a lot more manageable. Another win over FLA and then a win against TB would put them at 11. If the Bolts also lose their game against the Habs, that would put the Caps 1 point behind the Bolts.

Yes, I'm Mr. Optimistic. Life is more fun to me that way. I might change my tune as early as tomorrow night if they fall apart again, but until then I'll be over here while the everyone else decides how to chop up the corpse.
