Reference Guide: Probability table of winning each game, a seven game series, and the Stanley Cup

Here is a table that shows the odds of winning a seven game series and the Stanley Cup given the odds of winning each game. For example, if a team has a 40% chance of winning a game, they only have a 29% chance of winning the series. The odds will fluctuate depending on what happens once someone actually wins a game.

If you have questions, let me know in the comments and I'll try to answer them.
