The benefits of short rounds

Ken Campbell at The Hockey News puts together the numbers on something I've long thought of as a trend: The fewer games teams play in the opening rounds, the better their chances are in the long run.

(Of course, it's worth noting that the better teams get easier matchups in the first and second round, which would make sweeps and five-game series wins more likely. That would skew the numbers.)
