The Stanley Cup Finals are here. The Kings look to repeat their success in recent years, while the Rangers haven’t been to the Finals since 1994 (a win over Vancouver). Still, with goalies like these two have, anything is possible. But each side also has some pop on offense as well. It’ll be a fun series, that’s for sure.
Just in time for the Finals, our Pick ‘Em features a new scoring category: picking who will end up as Playoff MVP when all is said and done. And in addition, all point values are doubled! That means that guessing the winner of the series is worth four points, while guessing how many games the series will last and the MVP are worth two pointseach.
And if any of us finish tied, the tie will be broken by guessing the combined save percentage of Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick in the series’ final game only. That means pooling both of their saves and shots faced, then dividing the former by the latter.
So with that in mind, check below for the complete pick sets, and come back when the Stanley Cup winner is determined for the final results and standings.
