Also, excellent observation. A team that goes down 3-0 in a series, or even 2-0, has a greater likelihood of losing. My mind has been blown.
The point is there is always a chance as long as you're not eliminated. Outliers happen. Theyre outliers for a reason. Clearly it would not be ideal for the Rangers to put them selves in a 2-0 hole. Thats stating the obvious. It's not impossible. They came back from 3-1 down against the Sens last year. It's conceivable they'd be able to come back from a 2-0 down from the Caps this year.
Also, they came back from 2-0 back against the Pens a couple years back. Lost that series due to referee interference and bias that was under a lot of pressure to hand the Pens a cup to save that franchise.
The frequency at which those outliers happen make them exceptions not the norm.
