*Teams TBD in the East. Just wanted to get this out asap given the second round starts tomorrow.

Welcome to Round 2 of the Playoff Picks Game. Picks are due tomorrow before the start of the first game. I've been away from my computer since yesterday but will have the Round 1 Final scores updated tomorrow.

If anyone is still interested, the rules to the game are located at the bottom of this post.

Here are the Matchups based on their respective ranks:
WEST:
(2) St. Louis Blues vs. (8) Los Angeles
(3) Phoenix Coyotes vs. (4) Nashville Predators

EAST:
(1) New York Rangers vs. (7) Washington Capitals
(5) Philadelphia Flyers vs. (6) New Jersey Devils

NOTE: Please copy and paste the following template when making your picks. This truly cuts down on the time it requires to tally up scores and I greatly appreciate it. Bold the team you're picking to win, and then write the series score directly after in this manner: -- VAN/CHI 4-1

Round 2 Template:
________________________________

STL/LAK: 4-
PHX/NSH: 4-
NYR/WSH: 4-
PHI/NJD: 4-
________________________________


The format this year is the same as last, so please make sure you fully understand the rules below before making your picks. For those of you that aren't familiar with the game, here's how it works:

Each round you will pick a winner for each series. For every correct series winner you predict, you will receive 4 points for the first round matchups, 8 for the 2nd, 12 for the 3rd, and 16 for the Finals (0 if you pick the incorrect team, 3 points if you picked a 4-3 series and the other team won in 7 games). Also, to aid with tiebreakers you will pick how many games the losing team in each series will win. Given that the team you picked to win actually does win the series, you will then have the opportunity to receive up to 3 bonus points. For every game you are off for the losing teams actual win total, I will subtract 1 bonus point. After each round, every player will then re-pick again based on the teams that made it through to the next round. Whoever has the most points at the end of the season, wins Playoff bragging rights. As was mentioned earlier, if you pick a series to go to the 7th game and the series does but the team you picked ends up losing, you will receive 3 points rather than 0. Lastly, pick who you feel will represent each conference in the Stanley Cup Finals as well as the Champion. This will be worth 3 points per pick if you're correct.

Feel free to post any questions, and remember that your Picks must be in *before* the first puck drops of the first scheduled game each round.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
