I suppose I still have to show the results from the second round of the NHL Playoff pool, even though my picks didn’t register and I only got points from the few players I picked in the first round whose teams actually made it through to the second. BAH HUMBUG even though it was my fault (I forgot to answer the tie-breaker and didn’t spot that my player picks hadn’t gone through. Mind you, I still almost beat ModScientist).
ScientistMother was the clear winner in Round 2, moving up from 7th place to take a commanding lead over Gerty. Chall did well too, making up some ground on Gerty and third-placed Beth. There’s just a single point separating Ricardipus and Bob, who are under pressure from Lava and Mod in 7th and 8th place, respectively. But I will be BACK, BABY – my combined Round 3 & 4 picks are in, and I’m hoping that the LA Kings will go all the way, which would make it three years in a row that the Canucks are eliminated by the eventual winners. Which is better than nothing.
ScientistMother also kicked serious ass in the bracket, taking first place from last round’s dual winner Gerty. Cowy and Lava also managed to sneak ahead of Gerty, while ModScientist had a rougher time of it but held on to fifth place. I did much better than last time, rising from last place to sixth, while Beth and JasonDoc struggled and Chall, Rotten and IndyR appeared not to make any picks. I’d usually mock them, but not this time considering my fortunes in the pool…
OK, now GO KINGS! (Or don’t. I actually don’t care all that much. When do the Olympics start?)
