2017 STANLEY CUP PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS – ROUND THREE

2017 STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS

The 11th Edition of the World Famous, Award Winning Sirius XM NHL Network Radio Stanley Cup Playoff Predictions ticks on, as we enter the 3rd Round of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  The Western and Eastern Conference Championships!

We keep track of our predictions so one of us can’t later claim they had Ottawa vs. Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final from the very beginning.

Last year, Mike Lippa and Jim Gordon dominated this pool; Lippa ended up as the eventual Champion.  How fortunes change in one year…check the standings now.

This is not a bracket challenge.  We will submit new picks before each subsequent round.

For those who have asked, here is the point system…46 points would constitute a perfect score.

  • 1 point for correctly choosing the winner of each 1st round series
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the winner of each 2nd round series
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the winner of each 3rd round series
  • 3 points for correctly choosing the 2016 Stanley Cup winner
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the 2016 Conn Smythe winner
  • 1 point for correctly choosing how long a series goes, but only if one also correctly picks that series’ winning team
  • 3 points for correctly choosing the 2016 Stanley Cup winner before the playoffs begin
  • 3 points for correctly choosing the 2016 Conn Smythe winner before the playoffs begin
