2009 Stanley Cup Pool, Round Three

manga

The Carolinas have just defeated the Bostons and we now have a complete picture for round three of this year’s playoffs. Our match-ups include an original six battle between Detroit and Chicago, and a high-energy series between Pittsburgh and those pesky Hurricanes (Staal v. Staal). Get your picks in early, because the dates haven’t been announced yet but I can only imagine that Saturday will be the start of the third round. Remember that picks in the third round are worth three points each.

As I am very, very interested in seeing the new Star Trek movie that comes out this weekend, here is a funny cartoon parody I found via the Underwire blog.

Love the Enterprise drag race. :)

The first in this series from Sports Illustrated is the most similar — Dan Boyle and Dane Cook — but be sure not to miss the Alexander Ovechkin look-a-like. Ovie gets no respect, I tell ya.

Canucks move on, Moose tie series

manga

canucks_mooseIn an excellent night of hockey here in Manitoba, the Moose score a 5-1 win against the Marlies to tie their best-of-seven series at two games a piece, but it’s the parent club in Vancouver which steals the spotlight tonight with a 3-2 OT win over the Blues to sweep St. Louis out of the Stanley Cup playoffs. In a year filled with personal tragedy (the deaths of Luc Bourdon and Taylor Pyatt’s fiancee Carly Bragnalo) it is nice to see the team enjoying some success. Twelve more wins, boys, twelve more.

I’m usually not a sucker for these kinds of stories, but this one got to me for some reason.

2009 Stanley Cup Pool

manga

As has been done in years past (not here, but at my LiveJournal blog), I’m here to announce the 2009 Stanley Cup pool, for those that are interested. Here is the bracket:

stanley_cup_2009

And the simple rules:

1. For each round, starting with the first round of 16 teams and progressing to the fourth round (the finals), please make your choices for matchup winner as a comment to the appropriate post here at this blog. Comment to this post for your first round picks, and when the second round is determined, I will update with a separate post that participants can post comments to.

2. Each correct choice in round one earns you one point. Correct choices in round two are worth 2, and correct choices in round three are worth 3 points. The correct pick in the fourth round is worth four points. There are a maximum of 26 points available.

3. Participant with the most amounts of points at the end of the playoffs earns… BRAGGING RIGHTS!

4. Submission deadline for picks for the first round: Wednesday at 12:00 pm PDT. That gives you the next two days to watch some games and form your opinions.

I think that should just about do it. If you have friends that you want to challenge that aren’t a part of the LJ community, send them the graphic and the rules, and have them email their picks to me by the deadline.

Good luck to all participants!
