Contest(s) time! Stop shaving, start predicting

130

We’ve got a couple contests as we head into the postseason — finally! — tomorrow.

First and foremost is the second Bi-annual Boneheads/Paul Mara Playoff Beard Contest Extravaganza, Picnic and Parade. Or simply the playoff beard contest.

Send me, via e-mail, your “before” photos before Game 2 on Friday. Send them to rcarpini@lohud.com.

This time I am going to ask you to please, within the e-mail, tell me your real name and the name by which you want to be identified … i.e. your screen name. And I need your real e-mail address in case I have questions.

Once the Rangers are eliminated, or once they raise the Stanley Cup, whichever comes first, I will ask those who submitted “before” photos to send me “after” photos. Then we will decide, somehow, who won. Not sure what the prize(s) will be.

—–

Second is the predictions contest. Between now and the Game 1 “It’s Go Time” thread, post your series predictions in the comments on this thread. Please, for my sake, use this thread only for your predictions, don’t make me scroll through other threads. I will put reminders in any and all new posts between now and gametime. Contest ends when “It’s Go Time!” post goes up tomorrow after 6:30.

Here’s how it works: Pick all eight first-round series, winner and number of games. Then give me tiebreakers: Score of the clinching game of the Rangers-Capitals series, GWG in the clinching game of the series, number of saves for Henrik Lundqvist, Chad Johnson or Martin Biron (or other goalie for the Rangers) in the clinching game of the series.

The first tiebreaker after the number of correct series winners is determined, will be the number of correct series predicted with the exact number of games. Then we will go with score of Rangers-Caps clinching game, GWG, and saves. OK? If any problems arise, the decision of the judges (me) will be final. Or I’ll just award the title to Sally!

(Oh, one more little thing: Don’t even dream about entering more than once. If I don’t recognize a screen name, I will check IP addresses and I will send CCCP over to your house).

Not sure what kind of prizes there will be. I have some programs from this season, and I might be able to round up some other cheap (or free) stuff I gathered, or will gather.

Here are my picks:

Eastern Conference
Rangers over Caps in 6.
Flyers over Baby Buffaloes in 7.
Bruins over Canadiens in 5.
Lightning over Penguins in 7.

Western Conference
Canucks over Blackhawks in 7.
Sharks over Kings in 5.
Red Wings over Coyotes in 6.
Ducks over Predators in 6.

(Your tiebreakers should look like this: Clinching game-Rangers 7-1, GWG-Avery, Saves-93).

—————

Later tonight or tomorrow I will have my position-by-position matchups, and my column on King Henrik Lundqvist. I will also have some Stanley Cup playoff odds from Bodog.com.

GO!

    they better have this game on center ice or im gonna be super pissed! versus jip bull carcillo!

  10. Carp, I give you a lot of credit. This blog and covering the Rangers already takes up a lot of your day job and your night job. On top of that, you’re going to run two contests? Do you have staff?

    When you have time, (like in July) give us an idea of the difference between doing the Rangers Beat today compared to when you did it as your primary job. It must be so different now with internet, tweets, yadda yadda. Is it easier, harder, more stress, less stress….

    Devils win the Draft Lottery. Position goes from 8th to 4th

    Edmonton gets #1 overall

  19. That much-hated team from New Jersey won the draft lottery and ends up with the #4 overall pick. Won-der-ful! Could you imagine if they had knocked us off from the playoffs as well?

  22. You know Carp – Marji has a great point. Why don’t you put out an ad and get an intern? They are free, they work hard and there are tons of blogs out there that would love the exposure of working around here.

    Yeah hopefully just one. I dont know how many OT game winners my nerves could handle.

  34. Catching up on posts from earlier today. Great news about Tiki. Can’t wait till they drop the puck tomorrow night already! Geez!

  35. Linda, I am on the byfuglien floor!!

    Matteau actually had two Matteau moments in that series.

    So Prust should have at least that many. right, Prustbyterians?

  36. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    i had a feeling you’d like that Carp!

    I agree with you on Prust!! Between him and Fankist, we’ll have some interesting goal celebrations.

  37. That’s right Carp! Prusbyterians Unite!

    Prust!!!! Prust!!!! Prust!!!!

    Bring back Howie Rose!

  39. LinCalPrustBoylahan on

    i havent had a chance to catch up with all the shenanigans here today, but i did find it interesting that the caps goalie thinks he’ll outplay Hank.

  40. Manny, no, I don’t need to get to know a Cap. I know all I need to know. They are harnelling byfuglien carcillo cooke meat. Enough said.

    There was more I wanted to add, but I forget…After this week I feel like I’ve been Prusted….

  82. Been reading this blog for last two seasons and am finally breaking my radio silence. I said at the beginning of last season I wouldn’t start commenting on message boards until the playoffs (so I didn’t spend all day doing it)…I didn’t think it would take me 2 whole seasons!!

    Rangers over Caps in 7
    Buffalo over Flyers in 6
    Bruins over Canadiens in 6
    Tampa over Pittsburgh in 5

  85. It’s time for ‘Hockey In Shorts’. This is THE BEST time of year, bar none.
    Enjoy everyone and here it goes:

    Dick’s Picks:

    Rangers vs. Caps:
    Captain Clutch Chris Drury channels Bobby Sheehan (’79) and George McPhee (early 80’s) t become 2011 Playoff Messiah. Dubinsky deflects winning goal in 7th game off his backside earning new nickname “DuButtski” Ranger bottle Caps in 7

    Lightning vs. Penguins:
    Bolts too tired after emotional win over Canes. No incentive to p;lay now that Dolan has deposited ‘extra’ playoff money directly into acount and has given them all free Cablevision for life including Playboy premium channel. Crosby returns to bench, well actually behind it, with a thcik helmet on. Penguins jolt Bolts in 6.

    Habs vs. Bruins:
    Little French smurfs run around Chara and tie him up like in ‘Gullivers Travels”. Habs smartly turn down all invitations to fight. Subban calls on ‘bro’ Jay-Z to deliver pre-game pep talk. Habs cage Bruins in 6

    Sabres vs. Flyers:
    Doc Halladay drops first puck and prompts slips on ice breaking left arm. Fans boo Flyers through the entire series. Flyers, who play better on the road, use this to focus their game. Hartnell gains prominence as his hair grows through the series. Flyers slice Sabres in 7 in spite of sieve goaltending.

    Canucks Vs. Black Hawks:
    All the trappings of another upset, until call up the heretofore unknown Sedin Triplet, Sammy. They make like Hansen brothers and promote ‘old-time’ hockey. Black Hawk bus breaks down on the way to rink for 3rd game forcing players to take cabs. Uh-oh, AWOL Kane not bailed out until it’s too late. Canucks scalp Hawks in 5.

    Coyotes vs. Red Wings:
    Down 3-1, Wings dress Gordie Howe. On his first shift he goes into the corner with Michael Rozival. As the play goes up ice, Rozy is left dazed and his pant wet. Howe sits rest of series but damage is done. Wings muzzle Yotes in 7

    Kings vs. Sharks:
    Too bad. Without Kopitar and Dustin there is no chance, unless Justine Beiber dresses and the Sharks are too busy asking for autographs. Sharks crown Kings in 5.

    Ducks vs. Predators:
    Two teams I hardly know anything aboot. Rooting for Preds so I can get more glimpses of that alien big head, Barry Trotts. Preds in 6

    Tie-breaker – Rangers 3-2 GW- Stepan KH saves – 38
