Yeah there’s no way Boston sweeps. You do know this is a 2-3 match up right ?

Yes; itโs just what Iโm feeling.

NSH โ COL: NSH in 4

WIN โ MIN: WIN in 6

VGK โ LAK: VGK in 6

ANA โ SJS: ANA in 5

TBL โ NJD: TBL in 5

BOS โ TOR: TOR in 7

PIT โ PHI: PIT in 5

Oh I dunno if NSH sweeps buddy ๐

SORRY!!!! I dont want them to.

TB over NJ in 5?? That’s it, I rescind my pick of the Leafs beating the Bruins.

I’ve been really, really wrong so far.

Golden Knights win.

Flawless victory

I was wrong about the number of games, but I picked VGK and SJ correctly! No more SoCal hockey this year.

I’ll probably only get 2 more of the remaining 6, though.

Looks like the Leafs-Bruins game 7 was a heckuva nail biter.

I went 5 – 3 in round 1. Not bad! OK, round 2:

NSH – WIN: NSH in 6

VGK – SJS: SJS in 7

PIT – WSH: PIT in 7

TBL – BOS: TBL in 6

I only got one pick really wrong, but I should have expected that from the Sharks. Boston not Toronto won in 7. The rest were close with only Tampa being exactly right.

Next round:

NSH โ WIN: WIN in 6

VGK โ SJS: VGK in 6

PIT โ WSH: WSH in 7

TBL โ BOS: TBL in 6

I went 4/4 in round 1 bleh

Round 2: hereโs hoping for better results!

NSH- WIN: NSH in 5

VGK-SJS: VGK in 6

PIT-WSH: PIT in 6

TBL – BOS: TBL in 7

Well that last round was awful for me. Iโm terrible at picking the correct team. Letโs try this again.

WSH – TBL : TBL in 6

WIN – VGK : VGK in 6

I only picked 1 of 4 correctly. Time to accept that Vegas is going to shame the league and win it all.

VGK – WIN: VGK in 5

WSH – TBL: TBL in 7

VGK over TBL in 6.

I got all my picks right and almost all right for number of games. Probably just means I’ll get it all wrong this round.

VGK โ WIN: WIN in 7

WSH โ TBL: WSH in 7

Great job on the previous round, Ditto!

Thanks. ๐

A bunch of the experts went 1-3 in the second round, so it’s not just me. ๐

Wow, I could be exactly right about Round 3, including the number of games.

I still hope Iโm wrong, and Ovechkin pulls out the Game 7 win.

Yay Washington! Good on them.

Stanley Cup Finals.

WSH – VGK : VGK IN 6

Sorry, Ovie.

I’m going to root for Ovie. I’d like him to finally win a cup.

WSH in 7

CP: Necklace of Divorce — Crystal Fairy

Oops. Wrong thread. ๐

I pick Crystal Fairy to win it in 6 games.

I actually still pick VGK in 6 – – but Iโm rooting for an Ovechkwin.
