Pick the two teams that will advance to the Stanley Cup Final and the number of games each series will require: Nashville vs Anaheim and Ottawa vs. Pittsburgh. One extra point on winning picks for getting the number of games right. One extra point apiece for picking the top points scorer in each series and the goalie with the best save percentage (minimum two starts). The winner receives a one-year subscription to Hockey News.

The scores are in the previous discussion. The top point scorers in each series: Nashville/St.Louis had Ryan Ellis, Roman Josi and P.K. Subban at 5, Anaheim/Edmonton had Leon Draisatl at 13, Ottawa/New York Rangers had Erik Karlsson at 7 and Pittsburgh/Washington had Jake Guentzel at 8. The Karlsson pick earned points for grum@work, cixelsyd and rumple.
