LBC’s 2020 NHL Playoff Predictions Contest: Conference Finals

NDPanther wins Second Round portion

After some exciting action from the Toronto and Edmonton hubs that included three Game 7s, we have a winner for the Second Round.

Let’s give a big LBC Congrats! to NDPanther for finishing in first place to take the Second Round leg of the contest. NDPanther hit on three out of four series winners (3 points each) and earned two bonus points for calling a pair of those wins in the correct amount of games to finish with a total 11 points. Well Done!

Second place honors went to RecycledHabsFan and MichaelVal, who each finished with 10 points. BoutThirdyMan52, chasejs2013892, sabercat and myself ended up with nine points.

Now back to the postseason contest... Make your selections for the Conference Finals in the comment section. Scoring goes like this: three points for each series-winner plus an additional point if you call the winner in the correct number of games. We’ll keep the tiebreaker in the Eastern Conference. This time it will be the total goals scored in the Tampa Bay Lightning - New York Islanders series.

Here are the two series (in case you’ve somehow missed it) for the best-of-seven Conference Finals:

New York Islanders vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Dallas Stars vs. Vegas Golden Knights

Please enter your picks in the comment section mirroring the example below. Remember, there is a round-by-round winner and an overall winner at the end, so even if you didn’t enter or do so good in the first two rounds, get or stay in the game. Good luck!

Example Picks (these are not my picks)

Lightning (6) total goals: 33

Golden Knights (4)

Please get you picks in by the 8 p.m. puck drop of the Stars - Golden Knights game on Sunday. Sorry for the quick turnaround, condensed schedule and all...
