OK, kids, I just finished tabulating the results of our first-round predictions contest.

I will wait to make it official in case anybody thinks I made an error in my calculations. If so, please let me know by midnight tonight. I will double-check if you think I made a mistake. Otherwise, I will declare LW3H the winner at that time.

Here are the final standings according to my findings (and you know how much I hate counting, calculating or any other type of math, and how likely it is that I screwed it up):

1. LW3H … 8-0 record (it didn’t come to a tiebreaker, but he picked three series exactly correct, and had the Caps winning 4-1 in the clinching game).

2. Doodie Machetto … 7-1 record, four series exact, Capitals 4-2 in the clincher.

3. RT … 7-1 record, two series exact, Capitals 3-1 in clincher.

Congratulations, Boneheads. Since we’ve still got to vote on the Paul Mara Beard contest, and we’re having a second-round predictions contest, I’m only going to give out three prizes for this one.

Also, thanks to our good friend, ilb, for donating a few prizes for these contests. He’s the man.

LW3H, Doodie and RT, please email me your addresses to rcarpini@lohud.com.

As for me, I picked six series correctly (including three of the Game 7 series), as did many of you. I was surprised how many of you (us) picked the Rangers to win their series, and even more surprised how many picked Nashville over Anaheim (which was the other one I got wrong). Why didn’t you guys tell me that?

Eight of youse picked seven out of eight series correctly, and most of those lost only on the Rangers.
