Eight teams remain in the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the bracket is finally locked in. It’s now time to move on to the third and final stage of polls! We’re still working on the results for the first round, we’ll get those out as soon as possible! For now, let’s go through the next round.
For this round, you’ll be awarded points as follows:
2nd round: 4 points for a correct series winner + 2 points for a correct series length
3rd round: 6 points for a correct series winner + 3 points for a correct series length
4th round: 8 points for a correct series winner + 4 points for a correct series length
This time around, your picks in the previous round may have an impact on your score in this one. Let’s say you had the Hurricanes advancing past the Bruins in the first round, and you want to switch and pick the Bruins to win the next round or even win the Cup. If you pick a team to advance which has been previously eliminated in your bracket, you’ll only receive half the points.
Of course, if you haven’t entered as of yet, you still can; but like in the scenario above you’ll only receive half the available points.
With that, be sure to fill out the poll below (or here); it closes at 8:00 PM EST tonight. Good luck!
