NHL Playoff Pool *WITH PRIZES*

Hey,

I don't think anyone has made an NHL playoff pool thread yet. I'd like to start one and I'll add in some prizes as an incentive! I'm at work right now, so I can't create a full set, but start thinking about your predictions!

Rules
1. All entries must be submitted in this thread prior to each round starting. (E.g., April 12th, 6:59pm for the first round of the playoffs)
2. No editing your post after the round as started.
3. Only one entry allowed per person, don't use your multis to submit more than one guess.
4. Follow the format provided below so it is easy to understand what you are saying.
5. Points will be awarded for guessing which team won as well as correctly guessing how many games the series went on for, regardless of who you selected as the winner.


EXAMPLE:

EAST
Montreal vs New York in 6
Ottawa vs Boston in 4
Washington vs Toronto in 3
Pitsburgh vs Columbus in 5

WEST
Chicago vs Nashville in 6
Minnesota vs St. Louis in 7
Anaheim vs Calgary in 7
Oilers vs Sharks in 4

Point System
4 Points for guessing the correct winner within each series
4+1 Bonus Points for guessing the correct winner within each series AND your guess for how many games it takes is off by 2 (+/-)
4+2 Bonus Points for guessing the correct winner within each series AND your guess for how many games it takes is off by 1 (-/+)
4+3 Bonus Points for guessing the correct winner within each series AND correctly guessing exactly how many games it takes






PRIZES
1st Place - $50 Blue Jays Gift card
2nd Place - $25 Cineplex Gift Card
3rd Place - $15 Indigo Gift Card


Image GOOD LUCK

hmmm, gotz97's picks are exactly the same as op's (including the 3 game series win error in the caps-leafs series) except gotz97 (1 post total) forgot to bold the winner as you said.
