The End Of Round Two

Well, that's two California teams that have been stung hard by the Los Angeles Kings. If you want to talk about owning teams within your state, the Kings have the numbers of the Sharks and Ducks. After trailing in both series, the Kings are 5-0 in elimination games against the Sharks and Ducks this season. That, readers, is impressive. You want more impressive? The Los Angeles Kings became the first team to win two series in the same playoff year after losing three-straight games in two series of that playoff year. You witnessed history tonight if you tuned in.

In saying that, the HBIC Playoff Pool rolls on! With Round Three of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs starting tomorrow, the new spreadsheet has been configured. Again, to expedite the marking, I have created a pretty little Excel document that can be opened in both Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc. Fill this out and send it back to me WITH YOUR NAME AS THE NAME OF THE EXCEL DOCUMENT (ie. Teebz.xls). Once more, if you are going to use the .numbers format that Apple machines use, please see if you can save the document in .pdf or some sort of common format between the Apple and Windows platforms. That's my only request from all participants!

Click here to download if you missed the link above. Again, Round Three starts tomorrow night, so get those picks in! If there's a deadline problem, email me! The deadline is Sunday night for Round Three picks!

Good luck in Round Three, and second-round scores and an updated leaderboard will be posted tomorrow on HBIC! Chicago and Los Angeles in the West, New York and Montreal in the East; three third-seeds and second-seed for berths in the Stanley Cup; three Original Six teams; and, two teams that have won Stanley Cups in the last five years. This should be a beauty!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
