ROUND 2 OFFICIAL STANDINGS

As before, the number next to each person’s name represents his or her TOTAL SCORE for the round. The numbers in parenthesis represent the NUMBER OF QUESTIONS correct in that category.

1) BuccinGator: 90 (Series: 2, Games: 0, Props: 5, +50 POINT BONUS)
2) CMC18V: 78 (Series: 3, Games: 2, Props: 7)
3) PainMongers75: 72 (Series: 1, Games: 0, Props: 3, +50 POINT BONUS)
4) mikeyfan5599: 70 (Series: 3, Games: 2, Props: 5)
5) jpsdone: 62 (Series: 3, Games: 2, Props: 3)
6) Coach: 60 (Series: 2, Games: 2, Props: 5)
7) blitzburgh: 50 (Series: 2, Games: 1, Props: 5)
8) Muffin Man: 46 (Series: 2, Games: 1, Props: 4)
9) larry lava: 42 (Series: 2, Games: 1, Props: 3)
10) River Rat: 32 (Series: 2, Games: 0, Props: 3)
11) FOREPLUS: 12 (Series: 0, Games: 0, Props: 3)

Congrats to Buc on winning Round #2 and a dozen fresh e-Muffins! Buc scored 90 points and was one of two players to hit the 50 point bonus question.

In 2nd place was CMC with 78 points. CMC picked three of four series correctly, but more impressively he hit every single prop question other than the one that was thrown out. You should buy a lottery ticket my friend!

Rounding out the podium in 3rd place is PainMongers75 with 72 points. He was the only other player besides Buc to hit the 50 point bonus question. Nice job!

CMC, Mikey, and JP were the only ones who picked three of four series correctly in Round 2.

I was the only one to earn the same number of points in Round 1 and Round 2 (46). Hey, at least I’m consistent! grin1

Good luck, JP!

We agree it should go seven.  I think this might be a hot series due to the dust up with Crosby's slash on Methot late in the season in Ottawa and the Sens' owner Melnyk's comments (if anyone else remembers that).

ROUND 2 FINAL PICK MATRIX

Here’s what the pick matrix looked like for Round #2 (click on images to enlarge). I also updated the bonus question matrix again.

With the Oilers and Capitals both losing, it is now guaranteed that no one will get the 50 point bonus for correctly picking the Cup Final teams (Blitz can still get 10 points if the Pens make it).

So far, 68 total games have been played and between 12 and 21 more games remain. This means that Buc, CMC, JP, and PainMongers75 can still get this 50 point bonus question correct.

There were 14 more multi-goal efforts in Round 2 so we are up to 31 total. JP, PainMongers75, Fore, and Mikey can still get these 50 points. If the multi-goal efforts continue at a similar pace Fore is likely to be the closest.

Remember, your picks for Round #3 are due tomorrow (Saturday, May 12) at 7 PM EST!

Hitting the exact number of games played helped in hitting the bonus question, although I didn't tie in the right number with the correct series.

Hey, look at this way, you're the only one in the top 3 that hasn't hit a 50 pointer yet.
Which, of course, means that you've been the best so far at picking the series winners and props.

Good work, MM. Much appreciated!

Congrats to Bucc on winning round 2, and Mikey for hanging on to 1st overall. For now anyway. grin1

Didn't get to see the game last night or the highlights. So I'm not sure what happened on those calls.
But I remember back in the day they you use to call tender interference a lot.
Hell, they'd wave it off if even a tip of your skate blade was in the crease.
