It's playoff time! This year's game will be similar to last year's.. Here is how post season pick'em will work:

-Make your picks for the entire weekend before the first puck drop (This is important especially for the championship weekend - we will pick the champion before the two semifinal games)
-Correctly picking the higher seed to win each game is worth 1 point. Correctly picking the lower seed to win each game is 2 points. (This was a recommendation a few years ago to try to encourage picking the "underdog").
-1 bonus point awarded for correctly picking the winner of each first round series (assumed to be the team you have winning at least 2 games), 2 points in the quarterfinals, 3 in the semis, and 4 for the champion. This is independent of the number of games for the 3 game series.
-1 point will be awarded for "backwards splits" - if you pick team A to win Friday and team B to win Saturday, but the opposite happens, you get 1 point. (only in first round and quarterfinals)
-For the 3 game series, you will pick your predicted winner of each game. If you do not think a game 3 will be played, list N/A. You can pick the same winner for all 3 games if you want (if you don't want to pick a 2 game sweep, but can't decide which game will be lost).
-Remember - there are no ties in the post season!

These 'rules' may be confusing - don't hesitate to ask if you don't understand.

We will go back to posting picks in the thread. It may be easier for post season.

Welcome Back!

Ha, ha, ha; I have been sitting on the pine all season with an undisclosed injury, so I am well rested for the post-season. :-)

I think Niagara and Army are dangerous lower seeds and can take 1 game. I don't think they can take the series.

Hedges my bet. I could see Niagara taking a game, but could also see a sweep.

Nobody saw them scoring two in the third and taking the first game

I guess as I do the math, there is no strategic reason to pick a team for all 3 games. The most you can get in the first round is 4 points (1 for winner of the each of the 2 games, 1 for it going to 3 games, 1 for the winner of the series). If you pick a split in the first 2, but get it wrong, you would get 1 point for the 'backwards split,' 1 for the game 3 winner (presuming you get it right), 1 for the 3 games, 1 for the series winner. So still 4 points. If you get the split right though, its 6 points (2 for the higher seed winning 2 games, 2 for the lower seed winning 1, 1 for 3 games, 1 for the series winner).

Maybe I should rework how points are awarded for next year? thoughts?

7 people got 2 points, 3 people got 1 point last night.

Yeah, I was wondering about that, mar, which is why I did not bother with the potential third game.

Nice come back by Niagara last night, which stopped a bunch of us from earning 3 points.
