Update - B³ USHL Playoff Prediction Contest

The first round of the USHL playoffs is complete, so I will post the second round match-ups and update the prediction scores for our contest.

Once again, the rules:
-Pick the team you think will win the particular playoff series.
-Pick the amount of games you think the winning team will win in.
-Predict the total amount of goals scored in each series
-No anonymous names.  You don't have to use your real name, just pick something and stick with it.

Series results from the first round:  Omaha over Tri-City, 3-0.  Fargo over Sioux Falls, 3-0.  Green Bay over Waterloo, 3-0.  Indiana over Cedar Rapids, 3-2.

Here are the second round match-ups.  All second round match-ups are "best of 5" series.  The first team to win 3 games wins the series.

USHL West Division:
#1 Omaha Lancers vs. #2 Fargo Force
-Games 1, 2, and 5 will be held in Omaha.  Games 3 and 4 will be held in Fargo.
-Fargo won the regular season series against Omaha, going 5-0 in five games played.  Fargo outscored Omaha 22-15 in those five games.

USHL East Division:
#1 Green Bay Gamblers vs. #3 Indiana Ice
-Games 1, 2, and 5 will be held in Green Bay.  Games 3 and 4 will be held in Indianapolis.
-Green Bay won the regular season series against Indiana, going 4-0-1 in five games played.  Green Bay outscored Indiana 15-8 in those five games.

Updated scoring:
10 points - Shawn
8 points - Force Blogger
8 points - Ice Pucks
8 points - lincolnfan
8 points - nutz4puckz
8 points - starstruck
7 points - Hey Hey Whadda Ya Say
7 points - lmadragon
7 points - Yeti
6 points - StarsFan
5 points - Ghost
5 points - Layla
5 points - MacAttack
5 points - USHLProspectsBlog
4 points - Bud
3 points - BellTolls
3 points - Sam I Am
2 points - Cold Bud
2 points - Jofa

For each correct team that you predict will win the series, you will receive one point.  If you can also correctly predict the amount of games the winning team will win in, you will receive two points.  For example, if you predict the Omaha Lancers to win their series in 3 games, and Omaha does go on to win in 3 games, you would receive 3 points (1 point for picking Omaha, 2 points for picking the correct amount of games).  If you picked Fargo to win in 3 games, you would receive 0 points.  You must predict the winning team to earn the games played points.

To make it a little more interesting this second round, we will be predicting the total amount of goals scored in each series.  If by chance you happen to correctly guess the total amount of goals scored in a series, you will be awarded 4 points.

All entries must be posted before 7:00pm on Friday, April 16th.

Good luck!

We should all get tickets and go to game 5 in Omaha if there is one and cheer for Fargo.

Force Blogger said...

Dang, I missed the deadline! Good luck to all in the round, especially those who picked the Force! It is going to be an interesting Game 3 to say the least.

Yeti said...

The second round of the USHL playoffs are complete!

Fargo wins in 5 games; 30 goals scored
Green Bay wins in 4 games; 28 goals scored

I'll update the scoring tomorrow sometime and post a new blog article for the Clark Cup Finals.

Congrats to Fargo and Green Bay!

Yeti, looks like you and I were the only ones to correctly predict the amount of goals in a series (30 in Fargo/Omaha). Do I still get the points even though the winner was wrong? ;)

Yeti said...

StarsFan picked 28 goals in the GB/Indy series, so he also gets four points. Layla had the correct goal amounts reversed. Lots of folks came close. I'm updated the scoring right now.

Layla said...

I realized that afterwards Can I get 1/2 a pt? LOL
