Round 3 rules are as follows: - 2 points for picking the team that wins its series. - 1 bonus point for picking the correct number of games a series lasts (You still have to get the series winner right). - 2 points each for picking the player from either team who scores the most goals in the series (pick one from each team, possible for 4 points here). - 5 bonus points for getting all picks correct in a series (that's getting the winning team right, the series length right and both goal scorers right). Some serious points can be won here.

My picks: Eastern Conference Pittsburgh (Malkin) over Philadelphia (Briere) in 7 games. Western Conference Detroit (Datsyuk) over Dallas (Morrow) in 6 games. Thus setting up the NHL's dream Cup Finals. Sid v. the mighty Red Wings.

Detroit in 5 Zetterberg, Morrow Pittsburgh in 7 Hossa, Briere (though I'm tempted to go with Umberger, but I think that was just a total fluke)

And here's the (not up to date) Confidence Pool leaderboard, since it's been bumped off the front page.

Well, I can't win the confidence pool, and I'm doomed in this one unless I go underdogs and longshots from here on out. Oh well, let's go for gold! East: Pittsburgh (Crosby) over Philadelphia (Briere) in 4 games Dallas (Morrow) over Detroit (Franzen) in 4 games.

Sorry rumple and Fritsy, but you two were too late with your picks. You are automatically disqualified from this contest. You two guys plus BoKnows, 86, Folkways and mkn are all out. Guess makes me the new leader.
posted by NoMich at 07:38 PM on May 08
That plan works for me.
posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 10:01 PM on May 08
Oh yeah, you're out too.
posted by NoMich at 10:29 PM on May 08
Rightly so, I guess, since you're making up stats anyway.

The chart above shows that I picked Philadelphia to win the Colorado / Detroit series... And got it right! That has to be worth a x2 points multiplier based on degree of difficulty. I now have 32 points.

Oops. What else did I eff up?

Tahoe I'm only steppin on your head because of the alphabet. Monica, when it comes to these things, take any advantage you can. NoMich, I didn't bother looking up who the highest goal scorers were, but other than that, you have/had all my picks right. I still think that I should have received and extra point or two though in the first round for being the only person to correctly pick Sykora. Oh, and now your gonna give an extra five points for correctly picking every part of a series. You bastard.
posted by MrFrisby at 07:53 PM on May 09
I also want some second-round points because I would have got it all correct. Except for Philadelphia. And Dallas. And Franzen. And Morrow.
