"2013 NHL Playoff Pick'em"
LAST EDITED ON 04-29-13 AT 08:50 AM (EST)

Pick the winning team from each series right up to the conference and Stanley Cup finals.

Here's a fictitious example:

1. Washington Capitals
2. New Jersey Devils
3. Buffalo Sabres
4. Pittsburgh Penguins
5. Ottawa Senators
6. Montreal Canadiens
7. Philadelphia Flyers
8. Boston Bruins

The 1st seed plays the 8th seed, the 2nd seed plays the 7th seed and so on - example picks as follows.

Series 1 Washington(1)/Boston(8)
- Boston wins

Series 2 New Jersey(2)/Philadelphia(7)
- New Jersey wins

Series 3 Buffalo(3)/Montreal(6)
- Montreal wins

Series 4 Pittsburgh(4)/ Ottawa(5)
- Ottawa wins

Should all my picks come in, I collect 4 points and my winning teams move on to the second round where I have picked teams all the way through to the Stanley Cup Final. (Note: Each conference reseeds after the 1st round, with the highest remaining seed playing the lowest remaining seed.)

Correct picks in the first round are worth 1 point, 2 in the second, 3 in the third and 5 for the final.

Pick a series in the correct number of games, i.e., Montreal over Buffalo in six games. So, along with naming your series winner, predict in how many games the series will end. One half point (0.5) will awarded for each correct answer.

Lastly, in the unlikely event that we end up tied, a tie-breaking question for your viewing pleasure. Tell me how many goals will be scored in the Stanley Cup deciding game. Closest to the answer without going over wins the tiebreaker.

Your picks must be submitted by replying to this thresd before the playoffs begin.

This year's playoff match-ups:

Eastern Conference
1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 8. New York Islanders
2. Montreal vs. 7. Ottawa Senators
3. Washington Capitals vs. 6. New York Rangers
4. Boston vs. 5. Toronto Maple Leafs

Western Conference
1. Chicago Blackhawks vs. 8. Minnesota Wild
2. Anaheim Ducks vs. 7. Detroit Red Wings
3. Vancouver Canucks vs. 6. San Jose
4. St. Louis Blues vs. 5. L.A. Kings

Previous winners:

1. "RE: 2013 NHL Playoff Pick'em"
So...I guess I'll have to come off my personal strike for the playoffs and see if I can reclaim my title.

Of course, I'm realizing that, for the Wings to secure a first-round matchup with someone other than the Blackhawks, they may need the Wild to lose. Which means I have to root against the Wild - which means rooting for Colorado.

I think I'm going to be sick.

Brandon would be dangerous. He'd be the one the where the broadcaster uses his first, middle and last names. -suzzee

Wings got the #7 seed with tonight's win, so they're headed to Anaheim. No barfing allowed.

Well, it's a good thing the Wings did it themselves, because you can't count on the Av-holes for anything.

Now to see if the boys from the D can pull the upset against the Mighty Svcks...and a miracle against the HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWKS!!!

West
Chicago (1) vs. Minnesota (8)
Anaheim (2) vs. Detroit (7)
Vancouver (3) vs. San Jose (6)
St. Louis (4) vs. Los Angeles (5)

East
Pittsburgh (1) vs. NY Islanders (8)

Eastern Conference:

Pittsburgh (1) vs. NY Islanders (8) - In 4
Montreal (2) vs. Ottawa (7) - In 5
Washington (3) vs. NY Rangers (6) - Hard pick in 6
Boston (4) vs. Toronto (5) - In 6

It's hard picking a Conference you haven't really been watching.

Western Conference:

Chicago (1) vs. Minnesota (8) - In 5 So much for all that money spent by Minn.
Anaheim (2) vs. Detroit (7) - In 7 Popular upset pick but got to go with my head over my heart.
Vancouver (3) vs. San Jose (6) Everyone say Vancouver is up for a run...I'm not convinced....In 6
St. Louis (4) vs. Los Angeles (5) - St. Louis gets revenge for last year In 6

Semi Finals:

Eastern Conference:

Pittsburgh (1) vs. NY Rangers (6) - In 6
Montreal (2) vs. Toronto (5) - In 7

Western Conference:

Chicago (1) vs. San Jose (6) - My big upset as Chicago's goal tending falls apart in 6
Anaheim (2) vs. St. Louis (5) - In 6

Conference Finals:

Eastern Conference:

Pittsburgh (1) vs. Montreal (2) - In 6

Western Conference:

Anaheim (2) vs. San Jose (6) - In 7

Stanley Cup:

Montreal vs. Anaheim - In 7

6. "RE: 2013 NHL Playoff Pick'em"
Seems pretty clear how the playoffs will develop.

This year's playoff match-ups:

Eastern Conference
Conference Quarters
1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 8. New York Islanders: 5 games
Isles might steal one, but no way they can compete with Pens.

2. Montreal vs. 7. Ottawa Senators: 6 games
Tempted to pick the upset, but I think Montreal will right the ship.

3. Washington Capitals vs. 6. New York Rangers: 6 games
Caps looked really good coming down the stretch.

4. Boston vs. 5. Toronto Maple Leafs: 7 games
This is a heart, not a head, pick. I could easily see the Bruins being swept with the way theyíve been playing.

Conference Semis
1. Pittsburgh vs. 4 Boston: 5 games
Pains me to say it, I have no faith in the Bís this season.

2. Montreal vs. 3 Washington: 6 games
Hopefully, itíll be Ovie vs. Crosby in Conf. Finals.

Conference Finals
1. Pittsburgh vs. 3. Washington: 7 games
I hope the Caps can win this one, but if Crosby and Malkin play, I donít see it happening.

Western Conference
Conference Quarters
1. Chicago Blackhawks vs. 8. Minnesota Wild: 4 games
Chicago should trounce Minny.

2. Anaheim Ducks vs. 7. Detroit Red Wings: 6 games
Iím a little unshaky on this pick, but I hope Detroit canít compete.

3. Vancouver Canucks vs. 6. San Jose: 6 games
I hope San Jose pulls off the upset, but I doubt it.

4. St. Louis Blues vs. 5. L.A. Kings: 5 games
Seems like the Kings lost every game I saw them play down the stretch, and I havenít seen St. Louis play this season, but L.A. should have enough left in the tank to get out of the first round.

Conference Semis
1. Chicago vs. 5. L.A.: 5 games
L.A. canít hang with the Blackhawks.

2. Anaheim vs. 3. Vancouver: 7 games
I hope Vancouver gets swept in 4.

Conference Finals
1. Chicago vs. 2. Anaheim: 6 games
I hope Anaheim pulls the upset, but Chicago just looks too good.

SC Finals
Pittsburgh vs. Chicago: 7 games (Tie-breaker: 7 goals)
I hope this is a classic series that goes 7, with several overtimes. I hope Crosby plays the entire series. Iím not counting on the latter, however, which I think will make the difference.

7. "RE: 2013 NHL Playoff Pick'em"
Eastern Conference

1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 8. New York Islanders - Not sure if Pittsburgh Penguins...or NHL All-Stars.
Pens in 4

2. Montreal vs. 7. Ottawa Senators - Senators finished strong...but have to give it to the better team.
Habs in 6

3. Washington Capitals vs. 6. New York Rangers - My mama told me, never trust anyone from the Southeast. This isn't 2002.
Rangers in 6

4. Boston vs. 5. Toronto Maple Leafs - The Leafs made it in for the first time in forever. Wait for it...wait for it...and boom goes the Leafs.
Bruins in 5

Western Conference

1. Chicago Blackhawks vs. 8. Minnesota Wild - The Hawks are either going to flush everyone or are ripe for an upset. Keep in mind, since the 24-game unbeaten streak, they're playing pretty well, too.
Hawks in a sweep

2. Anaheim Ducks vs. 7. Detroit Red Wings - The Wings are playing well. The Ducks aren't playing especially well. This is my upset.
Wings in 6

3. Vancouver Canucks vs. 6. San Jose - Not ready to trust the Sharks.
Canucks in 5

4. St. Louis Blues vs. 5. L.A. Kings - The defending champs did it on the road last year. They can squeak by an evenly-matched opponent.
Kings in 7

CONFERENCE SEMIFINALS

1. Pittsburgh vs. 6. NY Rangers - Pens in 5

2. Montreal vs. 4. Boston - Bruins in 6

1. Chicago vs. 7. Detroit - Hawks in 6

3. Vancouver vs. 5. LA Kings - Kings in 6

CONFERENCE FINALS

1. Pittsburgh vs. 4. Boston - Pens in 6

1. Chicago vs. 5. LA Kings - Hawks in 6

STANLEY CUP FINAL

Pittsburgh vs. Chicago - Have to go with who's playing best.
Pens in 7
Final game 4-2 for the Pens

11. "RE: 2013 NHL Playoff Pick'em"
rats. I was sick yesterday and for some reason, no doubt having to do with the past 5 years of playoffs, was convinced that the playoffs started tonight, not last night. This would have been my picks:

East:
Pitt > NYI 4
Ott > Mtl 6
Wash > NYR 7
Bos > Tor 5

Pitt > Ott 5
Bos > Wash 6

Pitt > Bos 5

West

Chi > Minn 5
Det > Ana 7
Van > SJ 7
LA > StL 6

Chi > Det 7 (even though historically Detroit owns Chicago)
Van > LA 6 (some revenge for last year)

Chi > Van 7 (Chicago is still a problem for Vancouver - and they have a better team)

Pitt > Chi 5 (this assumes Crosby and the other Penguins are healthy)

Gosh. this is boring. I've gone for mostly favourites. It be much more interesting to have Toronto play Ottawa somewhere down the line and have a surprise team in the Cup Finals. how about Ottawa and StLouis? Two teams that haven't won the Cup in eons. Hmm. I suppose a Toronto Vancouver final would be similar - two teams that have never won the Cup since the first expansion, and Vancouver never.

Hey, the Bruins don't begin the playoffs until tonight. Can I still play? And I actually don't know how yesterday's games came out, because I was travelling.

Even if I can't, here are the regular bunch of losers:

Eastern Conference
1. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. 8. New York Islanders (5 games)
2. Montreal Canadiens vs. 7. Ottawa Senators (7 games) -- Life is too short to root for the Habs, ever.
3. Washington Capitals vs. 6. New York Rangers (7 games)
4. Boston Bruins vs. 5. Toronto Maple Leafs (5 games)

Western Conference
1. Chicago Blackhawks vs. 8. Minnesota Wild (4 games)
2. Anaheim Ducks vs. 7. Detroit Red Wings (6 games)
3. Vancouver Canucks vs. 6. San Jose Sharks (7 games)
4. St. Louis Blues vs. 5. L.A. Kings (6 games)

Round 2
1. Pittsburgh vs. 7. Ottawa (5 games)
3. Washington vs. 4. Boston (7 games)
1. Chicago vs. 5. L.A. (6 games)
2. Anaheim vs. 3. Vancouver (7 games)

Semis
1. Pittsburgh vs. 4. Boston (7 games)
1. Chicago vs. 2. Anaheim (6 games)

Finals
E. Pittsburgh vs. W. Anaheim (7 games)

Edited to add: Tie breaker = 2

15. "RE: 1st-round results"
I think I should have more points. I correctly guessed the winner in 6 of the 8 series (Pit, Ott, Bos, Chi, Det and LA) and got all three western series in exactly the right number of games. I even had the right number of games for the Wash/NYR series but I know it only counts if you have the right winner. So, by my count, I think I should have 7.5.

How does the second round scoring work exactly? None of us have exactly the correct matchups. Is it simply a question of who you named as series winner?

Eg. You said Pittsburgh would beat the Rangers in 6 and in fact Pittsburgh beats Ottawa in 6, you get the points for getting Pitt correct, yes?

If so (and it seems like the right way to do it), then Pepe has set up an automatic 2 points for himself. He has the Rangers beating the Pens and Boston beating Washington. Since the Bruins are playing the Rangers, he is guaranteed to have exactly 1 winner correct in the east. Wonder how many times that has happened?


Go Sens Go!!

You get points for picking the winner, regardless of the match-up, but you only get points for the right # of games if the match-up is correct.

So, if you predicted Bos. over NYR in 7 games in the 2nd round and that happens, then you get 2.5 pts. But if you predicted Bos. over Wash. in 7 games, you only get 2 pts. if Bos. wins, even if it's in 7 games, b/c Wash. isn't the opponent.

Thanks for the congrats on 10K. I started lurking on RTVW 10 years ago this summer.

Here are the results. As I've shown, you'll need to double-check my math. Remember that correct predictions count two points in the second round.

Official standings:
1. Col. Z: 14 (SC pick: Pitt.)
2. Pepe: 13 (SC pick: LA)
3. mrc: 8.5 (SC pick: Chi.)
4. byoffer: 8 (SC pick: Pitt.)
5. Hobbs: 6.5 (SC pick: Montreal)

Late to the game but playing for bragging rights:
Stan: 14.5 (SC pick: Pitt)
Ayak: 12 (SC pick: Pitt)

I think you may have got mine wrong again. I had Pit over Ottawa correctly in 5 as well as Chi over Det in 7. Those should be 2.5 each plus 2 for Boston. I think I should be at 14.5. Thanks.

So...if the Hawks hold on, I've got this.

Great. Now I have to root for the Blackhawks. And their annoying fans who go to visiting venues, sit eight rows back, and shout "HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!" as loudly as possible in random intervals.

Interesting results. If Chicago wins, then Col. Z. and I tie for first. Frankly, I'm pulling for a Boston win.

And Stan is still kicking himself for picking late.

1. Col. Z: 17
2. Pepe: 13
3. mrc: 12
4. byoffer: 11
5. Hobbs: 6.5

Unofficial:
Stan: 17.5
Ayak: 12

30. "Congrats, Col. Z!"
Chicago's win left Col. Z. and me in a tie, but he predicted 6 goals in the final, while I predicted 7, so he wins on the tie-breaker.

I'll update the final standings next week.
