Default Stanley Cup Playoffs Prediction Contest - Round One

We're back for yet another year of the playoff prediction contest. If you're new to the game or need a refresher on the rules, here they are:

Here's how this contest works, if you're new or if you need a refresher:

You will pick the winner of each series and the number of games they will win it in. The amount of points you get varies depending on the round.

- In the first two rounds, you get 2 points for predicting the series winner, and 1 point for predicting the number of games.
- In the conference finals, you get 5 points for predicting the series winner, and 3 points for predicting the number of games.
- In the Stanley Cup finals, you get 10 points for predicting the series winner, and 5 points for predicting the number of games. You will also be asked to predict the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy before the finals begin. A correct prediction will also be worth 5 points.

In addition to predicting the first round winners, you should also pick your Stanley Cup finals pick. You will earn 5 points for each team that ends up in the Finals, and 10 points for predicting the winner right now.

NOTE: You don't have to pick the entire playoffs now. Just pick the first-round winners, the number of games, and your Finals prediction (games are not necessary for this pick).

Picks are due by WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14 at 7:00pm Eastern time.
