The second round is done, and the leaderboard of the Canes Country Playoff Pick-Em looks a little different.
We had one sweep of the 2nd round, by yours truly (ahem). Props to Cathye, who perfectly nailed three series and takes over first place by a point.
Since the third round started so early (and on a weekend to boot...thanks, Gary!), the scoring rules are a little different this time. Full credit is 4 points for picking the correct team, and 8 bonus points for picking the correct team and number of games. However, in this round only, we will offer half credit for picks made after game 1 of each series begins but before the beginning of game 2 of the MTL/NYR series.
In other words, picks are still eligible until Monday night at 8:00, which is when the comments will close. However, picks for the MTL/NYR series that are posted after Saturday at 1:00 will earn 2 points for the correct team and 4 points for the correct length. Picks for either (or both) series made after Sunday at 3:00 will earn the same amount of points.
The scores as of the end of the second round, plus last round's picks, are below, followed by the CC staff's picks for Round 3. As you can tell, this is still anyone's game, so get your picks in - even if you haven't made picks in the first two rounds, it's not too late to start. Good luck!
