How to play
It's actually pretty simple: just pick the teams you think will win during each round of the playoffs, and in how many games. You also get to pick the Stanley Cup champion before it all begins.
The playoffs work like this: 16 teams enter the first round, and are paired up in best-of-7 matchups. After the first round, 8 teams will remain, and they go into the 2nd round. By the 4th round (the Stanley Cup final), two teams will remain, and one of them will go on to win it all.
Since we don't know who's gonna be playing until the end of each round, there's a separate registration before each round begins. So keep an eye out on this page, as well as the NHL standings.
During each registration period (between playoff rounds), a form will appear on this page. To register, simply fill out the form with your picks.
As the winners are determined during a round, your score will increment accordingly. Points are scored as follows:
