Before we get to Game 4, we have two winners of the first-round predictions contest (apologies for the delay).
I found two entries with seven out of eight series correctly predicted.
Headzo appears to be our winner, having correctly predicted seven series, including the Rangers. Our runnerup, tf, also predicted seven series, including the Rangers. Neither predicted the correct number of games or the score of the final game nor the game-winning goal, so we went to a saves tiebreaker, and Headzo had 32, tf had 33 and the actual number was 28. So Headzo is declared the winner.
If anybody has reason to believe they did better than those two, you have 24 hours to contact me at email@example.com. Otherwise, Headzo and tf will be declared our winners (don’t worry, tf, the first- and second-place prizes are the same: The new DVD “Road to Victory” about the ’94 Rangers — which is outstanding, I might add).
Headzo and tf, I need you to please send me your mailing addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was a sparkling 3-5, by the way. Which is almost looking as good as my preseason picks of Tampa Bay to win the East during the regular season, and Pittsburgh to beat Anaheim for the Cup. Thank you very much.
