This post will be edited to show the leaderboards in the two contests, but until then go ahead and make your picks for the Finals in the comments section.
For the Brackets competition, make your pick for the winner of the Finals matchup. For tiebreaker points, also pick the series score for the Finals as well. Each correct pick will garner you one point, and the person with the most points after the Stanley Cup Final is played wins it all.
In the Pick n' Mix competition, the rules are the same as always. For the series, we will need you to pick -
Series winner [winner] - give the team name
Series score [score] - score of the best-of-seven series
Series top goal scorer [goals] - give the player's last name
Series top assists scorer [assists] - give the player's last name
Team with most PIMs [PIMs] - give the team name
Once again, each correct pick gains you one point and the winner is whoever has the most points after the Stanley Cup Final ends.
