2020 NHL Fearless Playoff Predictions 2nd Round

2020 NHL FEARLESS PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS

Everybody pretty much fared better with their predictions in the first round of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs, as opposed to the play-in round.

Bruce Bolton and Steve Kouleas led the way by correcting picking six out of the eight first-round series.

We now head to the second round, so we asked the staff here at SiriusXM NHL Network Radio the following two questions…

  1. Pick the winner of each of the four 2nd round playoff series
  2. Pick the correct number of games each 2nd round series will go

 A reminder – this is NOT a bracket.  We will make new picks with each subsequent playoff round.

Here is this year’s unique point system; 68 points would constitute a perfect score.
(Under our “normal” scoring system, 46 points was the maximum one could achieve. Mike Lippa set the record with 36 points back in 2016).

  • 1 point for correctly choosing the winner of each Play-In Series
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the 1st place finisher in each round robin group
  • 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 2020 Stanley Cup winner
  • 2 points for correctly choosing the 2020 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 2020 Stanley Cup winner before the playoffs begin
  • 3 points for correctly choosing the 2020 Conn Smythe winner before the playoffs begin
  • 2 points for correctly choosing which team gets to draft first in the 2020 Entry Draft
