It's playoff time! This year's game will be the same as 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. Good luck all!

Thanks for all the bumps :)

Of note, when standings get posted, it will be sorted by Post Season points, but will include a column for Regular Season plus post season points.

He's using the logic of if he doesn't pick them, they will win! Apparently their wins are more important than his standing in the Pick 'em

You know me too well, blazer. But, the Falcons are reeling with injuries, which has made for another tough late season for them. You may have noticed that I think they will win one of their first two games, I just do not know which one.

Going to be a stressful weekend then.....good luck to the Falcons.

Five players called the AIC win last night. This may be the series that gives somebody the lead for good

Or, regression toward the mean?

I was told there'd be no math!

It depends on which pick they made tonight. 9 'game not needed' votes so if somebody has picked them right so far and
gets tonight game, they jump to a pretty good lead with either 4 or 5 points from this series (1+2+(1 or 2) = 'Hello World'. ;)

Plus 1 for picking the series winner correct - so could be 5 or 6 points total for the series.

What a first round! All 3 series went to 3 games. All top seeds won.

A perfect round would have been worth 15 points. (5 per series - 2 for the top seed winning two games, 2 for the bottom seed winning 1 game, 1 for correctly picking the winner of the series). MICZamboni led with 13 points. Their only error was calling the first two Canisius/Niagara games backwards.

Here are standings.

Lots of hockey to play still! A perfect 2nd round will get you anywhere from 20-28 points, depending on the outcomes.
