Round Three Begins

Well, that was rather uneventful. Both of the Game Seven games in the Western Conference turned into blowouts that no one was expecting, but it furthers the story line of this year's NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs and HBIC Playoff Pool! Honestly, I didn't think the Predators would roll over as easily as they did against the Sharks, but the NHL is quickly realizing that this Sharks team is hungrier more than ever. Can they knock off the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Final? Who will meet either the Penguins or Lightning in the Stanley Cup Final? And, most of all, who has the lead in the HBIC Playoff Pool?!?

Scores are being tabulated and calculated today, so there should be an update sometime today. In the meantime, let's get you setup with the new spreadsheet. Some of you may want to risk points on one of the two remaining series, so make sure you check the leaderboard before the start of the Lightning-Penguins game tonight and get that info in. I will have the scores updated by that time.

Once more, there's another pretty little Excel document that can be opened in both Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc. Fill it out and send it back to me WITH YOUR NAME AS THE NAME OF THE EXCEL DOCUMENT just like you did in the first round, but note that it is a Round 3 spreadsheet (ie. TeebzR3.xlsx). Send all picks to the pool email address: hbicplayoffpool-at-gmail-dot-com.

Eight prizes, which will be posted on Sunday, are up for grabs! May the odds be ever in your favour!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
