I think this is right:
Round 1: 20 points (3 perfect, 2 off by 1 game, 3 wrong)

Round 2: 24 points (1 perfect, 2 off by 1 game, 1 wrong)

Total: 44 points going into round 3

We double loser points as well right? So bad picks this round were -2?

edit: wait do we get points for # of games even in series where we got the wrong winner?

Playoffs are no big deal,
don't have a crap attack.


So, since I wasn't sure if I get points for having the correct amount of games but wrong winner, I did totals for both

1st round: Either 20 or 14
2nd round: Either 9 or 3

As you can see, I am a bad predictor this year.

Jets in 5: The Knights have had an easier road to the CF than other teams. The Jets are an elite team. This SHOULD be pretty easy, but I have learned to never discount the Knights.
Caps in 7: I want to go TB, but I really want to see Ovechkin win the Cup.

EDIT: SECOND ROUND SCORE: 2

So, assuming that you get -2 points in this round for wrong winner, and assuming that a wrong winner is just minus points no matter the games, (and I hope people have calculated their points in the first round the same way), second round was 8 points for the winnipeg series and -2 for the three others.

As with others I wasn't sure how the the games points were tallied if you chose the wrong winner so I did 2 tallies

Round 1: 26 or 19
I picked Avs in 6, Ducks in 6, and CBJ in 6

Round 2: 34

Sorry for the delay on this , I missed the questions on scoring.

Having added things up now, the straight forward answer is that what you just said is correct. Basically.

2 points for picking the right team
1-3 points depending on how close you are to games. 0 points if say, you picked a team in 4, and they win in 7
Negative 1 point for picking the wrong team

All 3 types doubled for round two. So -2 for picking the wrong team.

For round 3 is double off of round 2, so -4 for wrong team.
