That's where you're wrong. It's not math. It's hockey.

You can model the game as well as you want, but that doesn't change the fact that it's a game. In every regression model, there is a a random error component. This random error is where the assumptions come into play. Even the math gurus who attempt to model the NHL using statistics admit that the random error is pretty significant.

Also, you didn't answer my question. The Wild at this point had SIGNIFICANTLY less points than the Ducks do.
